Bluetooth® ICs

The Toshiba Bluetooth 4.0 family of controller ICs supports new applications enabled by the introduction of Bluetooth Low Energy (LE), the key new feature of the Bluetooth 4.0 Core Specification, as well as "classic Bluetooth" applications in cars and personal computing.  Bluetooth LE is intended for sharing small amounts of data among nodes in a wireless network with a minimum use of power, fast and easy connection set up.  These applications may include activities such as a keyboard sending keystroke data, a wireless sensor reporting its latest sample set, a medical instrument reporting on a patient's status, a wireless biosensor sending an exercise machine the user's heart rate, a stuck valve in a factory sending an alert, and many other cases where a small amount of data needs to be exchanged. The standard is also widely adapted in latest smartphone generations under the BT SIG logo Bluetooth Smart or Bluetooth Smart Ready.

Toshiba Bluetooth® IC Benefits

  • Toshiba's Bluetooth® ICs provide proven high connectivity, stability and interoperability.  Various application scenarios can be created by using
    • An HCI model with additional host CPU and ported Bluetooth stack/profile software
    • An integrated stack/profile concept with application on host MCUs
    • A stand-alone configuration (no external host MCU) with bootable program code from external EEPROM
  • The integration of nearly all the necessary RF and peripheral components lowers the bill of materials significantly and eases PCB design.
  • Toshiba's hardware and software have undergone Bluetooth® tests and performed Bluetooth Qualification Body (BQB) qualification.  The products  are listed in the Bluetooth SIG qualified product list, which eases end product listing for system developers.
  • The integration of stack and profiles offers an all-in-one Bluetooth® system solution and is currently available with profiles such as SPP, HID, HSP or BLE GATT and combinations of those.  Various application profiles (e.g. heart-rate, glucose-meter, battery service, find me etc.) according to BT LE standard are available, too.
  • Toshiba co-operates with partner companies to realize state-of-the-art ready-made module solutions for the industrial, medical or consumer market, which eases the adaption of this technology into systems and shortens Time-to-Market.
