CSR and Realtek Form Partnership
These CSR PC BlueCore-based designs support the latest Bluetooth SIG specifications to enable high data transfer speeds by using the PC’s Wi-Fi radio to cope with larger file sizes, said CSR. In addition to its implementation of the CSR9000 platform, already driving Bluetooth v3.0+HS in embedded markets, CSR is now also enabling complete wireless solutions for the PC market using the CSR PC BlueCore in partnership with Realtek.
This partnership with Realtek forms an integral part of CSR’s ongoing strategy in the PC market and elsewhere to provide the benefits of Bluetooth and other short range wireless technologies to as many customers as possible.
Anthony Murray, senior vice president of audio and consumer business unit at CSR, said: “CSR was amongst the first companies to qualify a Bluetooth v3.0 + HS product and this partnership is the next step in delivering the high-speed, power efficient data transfer rates of Bluetooth v3.0 to the PC and netbook markets. Our strategy through this partnership is to give our customers the flexibility to combine our best-in-class Bluetooth platform with their preferred Wi-Fi supplier.”
Luke Huang, vice president of communications network business unit at Realtek, said: “Thanks to the partnership with CSR we can offer our customers a low cost and highly effective way to integrate the latest Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology. CSR is a market leader in Bluetooth and its silicon contributes to our module delivering industry-leading connectivity to PC and netbook users.”
