CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) and Cypress Semiconductor Corp. have announced that they have jointly developed the industry's lowest-costing Bluetooth connectivity solution for off-the-shelf USB-enabled peripherals.

The result is CSR's USB Bluetooth printer dongle example design, which enables a total bill of materials of under $15, bringing together CSR's BlueCore Bluetooth chipset and Cypress's USB OTG semiconductor technology.

The printer dongle design allows standard USB-enabled printers to receive and print Bluetooth data from laptops without turning on the printer's host PC.

The product plugs into standard USB printer ports, and the technology may eventually be integrated into printer designs. Cypress's EZ-Host USB controller inside the dongle acts as "host," mediating data "traffic" between the portable device and printer.
