Bluetooth® EDR + FM Radio Single-Chip Solution

Currently Viewing:

A monolithic 0.13 micron single-chip Bluetooth 2.0+EDR compliant stand-alone baseband processor with an integrated 2.4 GHz transceiver, integrated FM and RDS/RBDS receiver and an integrated FM baseband processor.
It features the highest level of integration and eliminates all critical external components, thus minimizing the footprint and system cost of implementing a Bluetooth and FM solution. The BCM2048 has been designed to support key features of next-generation Bluetooth technologies. The BCM2048 is the optimal solution for any voice and/or data application that requires the Bluetooth SIG standard Host Controller Interface (HCI) via a high-speed UART and PCM. The BCM2048 incorporates all Bluetooth 2.0+EDR features including eSCO, AFH, fast connect, all EDR packet types and lengths, and all errata. The BCM2048 also includes InConcert® and other industry collaborative coexistence solutions with WLAN systems.
