Silicon Wave Inc. and RF Micro Devices Inc. have introduced the SiW3500 UltimateBlue IC, a single-chip CMOS Bluetooth solution that helps speed time-to-market and implements new features found in Bluetooth Specification v1.2, including faster connecting times, Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH), and extended SCO for improved voice transmissions.

Combining a direct conversion radio modem with an ARM7TDMI processor core, Bluetooth baseband logic and protocol software in ROM, the IC platform can execute additional upper layer protocol stack and application software functions, including additional complex audio processing algorithms such as noise cancellation without a separate DSP. The device also supports all standard mobile phone reference clock frequencies.

Available in a 96-pin 6-by-6mm VFBGA package, the IC is rated for operation between the -40C to 85C temperature range. It is also available with a bumped die option.
