BLUEGIGA RELEASES A NEW LONG RANGE BLUETOOTH MODULE

Feb 12, 2010
 
The world’s leading Bluetooth OEM module manufacturer, Bluegiga Technologies, releases a long range Bluetooth module that provides exceptional radio performance.

For Bluegiga Technologies releases the first truly long range Bluetooth module, WT41. It provides +20 dBm output power which is the maximum allowed in Americas, Europe and various Asian countries. WT41 Bluetooth module can achieve 1000 meters distance in optimal conditions and several hundreds of meters in urban or office environments. In addition to a RF power amplifier WT41 also implements a low noise amplifier significantly improving the module sensitivity down to -90 dBm. The sensitivity improvement extends the WT41’s range to Bluetooth class 2 devices such as mobile phones or PDAs. WT41 module is available with integrated chip antenna or U.FL antenna connector.

WT41 is targeted for numerous application areas requiring the best possible performance and reliability for the Bluetooth wireless data or audio connections. The main benefit of WT41 module for an OEM is that the sudden “no coverage” situations can be avoided and the link remains up even in most demanding conditions. Also the WT41 module offers the best possible Enhanced Data performance and range for data intensive applications.

"This new WT41 module is a result of our over 100 man-years experience of building Bluetooth wireless technology. The module design incorporates some of the world’s finest radio components and our extremely well thought hardware design. The most challenging task, when implementing a high power radio product, is to design it so that it provides best performance in its class but still meets all the regulatory limits defined by CE and FCC. But we succeeded in doing so.", comments Tom Nordman, Bluegiga’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

The WT41 Bluetooth module is available with Bluegiga’s iWRAP firmware offering support for several Bluetooth profiles such as: SPP, HDP, DUN, OPP, FTP HFP, HSP, AVRCP, PBAP, DI, HID and standard HCI over UART or USB.

About Bluetooth Wireless Technology

Bluetooth wireless technology is the global short range of wireless standards for personal connectivity from a wide range of electronic devices. The technology is now available in its fourth version of the core specification and continues to develop, building on its inherent strengths: a small-form factor radio, low power, low cost, built-in security, strength, accessibility, and ad hoc networking abilities. The installed Bluetooth devices were more than one billion at end of 2006, making it the only well-known choice for developers, product manufacturers, and consumers worldwide.
