Fujitsu first to use Bluetooth 1.2 specification

CSR, a leader in Bluetooth technology, today announced that a notebook PC using its BlueCore silicon has just qualified to version 1.2 of the Bluetooth specification. This is the first end-product to qualify to v1.2, the improved specification which brings connectivity enhancement to Bluetooth but retains backwards compatibility with existing v1.1 Bluetooth products.

The v1.2 Bluetooth-enabled product in question is the Fujitsu LifeBook S7010 mobile computer, which ships with CSR’s BlueCore IC and has been qualified to be compliant with the Toshiba v1.2 PC stack.

CSR’s v1.2 BlueCore offering includes Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) technology. AFH minimizes interference between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios when operating in the same environment, making it ideal for use in a busy RF environment — such as in Wireless LAN offices and hotspots. CSR’s Bluetooth v1.2 solution also employs Fast Connect, which significantly improves the usability of Bluetooth devices by reducing device discovery times by up to an order of magnitude.

Eric Janson, Worldwide Vice President, Marketing for CSR, added, “CSR has been in close collaboration with the SIG (Special Interest Group) to develop the technology that makes up Bluetooth v1.2. We are therefore delighted to see BlueCore silicon in the very first v1.2 qualified product.”
