NewLogic Technologies AG released its new BOOST Bluetooth baseband processor, designed in a modular way, which enables it to be easily integrated into SoCs.

"We at NewLogic see a continuously growing market for integration of Bluetooth in SoC devices and have been very successful in winning new Bluetooth licensees," said President and CEO Hans-Peter Metzler. "As stand alone or in combination with our WLAN IP, we see strong requirements, especially in the mobile, consumer and automotive market space, for integration of Bluetooth."

The BOOST IP family includes the Bluetooth baseband processor, a full Bluetooth software protocol stack and a Bluetooth CMOS radio. According to the company, these IP elements meet SoC design demands including small size, the ability to be integrated into current and future platforms, and scalability. The baseband is also designed to be processor independent and although most customers integrate it with an ARM CPU, the baseband can also work with other CPU's and with proprietary processor cores.

"The initial market for Bluetooth IP was mainly semiconductor companies who wanted fast market entry with standalone Bluetooth ICs," commented NewLogic Marketing Director Chris Eden "These devices were then used in a range of first generation Bluetooth enabled products. Where these products have successfully entered volume production and for second generation products, manufacturers are reducing their BoMs by integrating Bluetooth into the main system ASIC. This approach can also reduce the number of memory devices and provide other performance advantages."
