Single-Chip Bluetooth® EDR HCI Solution
The Broadcom BCM2046 is a monolithic, single-chip, stand-alone baseband processor with an integrated 2.4-GHz transceiver for Bluetooth Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) applications. It is fully compliant with Bluetooth 2.1 features such as Simple Pairing (SP) and Enhanced Inquiry Response (EIR). The BCM2046 is also completely backward-compatible with any prior Bluetooth versions. The ROM-based solution eliminates the need for external flash memories and active components by integrating critical components into the device, thus minimizing the footprint and system cost of implementing a Bluetooth system.
The BCM2046 EDR solution has been designed in 0.13μ bulk CMOS technology, the most widely available silicon process today. This use of the advanced process enables the BCM2046 to achieve the lowest possible current consumption in all modes of operation and maintain the lowest cost total solution.
