UK, 7th February – CSR’s high performance µEnergy platform has been selected by Bluegiga Technologies for its new BLE211 Bluetooth low energy OEM module. Targeting sensors and accessories requiring ultra-low-power connectivity, the BLE211 module provides OEMs with an easy way to integrate Bluetooth low energy technology based on CSR’s µEnergy platform into their products and bring them to market quickly.
The BLE211 module opens the door for simple integration of CSR’s Bluetooth low energy technology into a variety of industrial, medical and consumer electronics applications. Markets for the module include sports and fitness, medical and healthcare, home and industrial automation, mobile PC and phone accessories, security and proximity tracking. In healthcare, for example, the BLE211 can provide connectivity for gym fitness equipment, weight scales, blood pressure monitors and other medical devices.

The CSR µEnergy platform provides the BLE211 with proven interoperability and full certification to all the appropriate radio standards, making it simple for OEMs to integrate the module into a wide variety of devices. “As a leader in the development of Bluetooth low energy solutions, CSR recognises there is great demand for new applications that feature the connectivity and extended battery life benefits of this emerging technology, but not everyone can spend time integrating and testing separate components,” said Anthony Murray, Senior Vice President of the Audio and Consumer Business Unit at CSR. “Many OEMs have been waiting for a fast, straightforward solution for embedding Bluetooth low energy technology into their products, and through this new Bluegiga module, CSR is now helping to make this possible.”

The BLE211 module uses CSR’s qualified Bluetooth v4.0 host stack, and features the Generic Access Profile (GAP), L2CAP, Security Manager, Attribute Protocol (ATT) and Generic Attribute Profile (GATT). It is also provided with fully Bluetooth v4.0 compliant GATT profiles to easily enable the latest applications to be created on chip.
