Mindtree Limited has announced BlueLitE, a comprehensive IP suite for Bluetooth low energy technology at the Wearable Technologies Pavilion at Medica 2011, a global medical event held at Dusseldorf, Germany.
The IP suite consists of stack and profiles, link layer and digital PHY (modem) and is designed to meet the growing need of semiconductor players in the proprietary low power wireless space to migrate to Bluetooth low energy technology.
"Our research tells us that concerns like interoperability, qualification, end product cost and power consumption dominate the minds of our customers and prospects who are on this migratory path. We have addressed each of these key concerns effectively in our offering which makes it simple and straight to for our customers to have their product in the field in quick time," said Vikram Srivats, group head, Bluetooth Product Business, MindTree.
BlueLitE has been tested in several Bluetooth SIG interoperability events and has specialized power management techniques. While the most compact implementation in terms of gate count, code and data memory reduces the variable costs, the structural design of BlueLitE enables retention of product platform which keeps the initial fixed costs low. Design based on clean abstraction layers and ANSI C code enables easy portability thereby accelerating the time to market.
"With BlueLitE being qualified and customers having taped out their initial versions of silicon, we are very bullish about MindTree's play in this exciting large market," he said.
MindTree has been working on Bluetooth technology space for over a decade and made contributions to the development of Bluetooth low energy (v4.0) core specifications. It also holds key positions in the Bluetooth SIG including that of Associate Councilor to the BARB (Bluetooth Architecture Review Board) and co-chair of the Medical working group.
