Bluetooth® classic/low energy dual and Bluetooth® low energy(LE) are widely used by audio, mobile, wearable and healthcare devices. In the coming years, Bluetooth classic/low energy dual and Bluetooth® low energy devices will become increasingly pervasive. For over ten years, Toshiba has been serving as a Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) (Note 1) Promoter contributing to the wider uptake of Bluetooth solutions. Toshiba is a leading source of Bluetooth connectivity ICs and original Bluetooth protocols and profiles.

Toshiba’s Bluetooth LE devices feature very low power consumption. Our Gen-II LE devices, which are compliant with Bluetooth V4.2, realize the industry’s lowest-in-class power consumption of 3.3 mA in Tx mode and 3.3 mA in Rx mode. These LE devices are ideal for small mobile applications operated by a button cell and help enhance the value of end-user products.
Although Bluetooth low energy (LE) is gaining wider use in smartphones, many smartphones support only Bluetooth classic still remain in the market. Toshiba’s Bluetooth classic/LE dual devices provide connectivity for both smartphones. Toshiba also offers automotive-grade Bluetooth classic/LE dual devices to meet the needs of various applications.
Toshiba’s Bluetooth classic devices implement its own protocol stacks and profiles designed to provide a high-quality connection with smartphones and PCs. These devices are ideal for EDR-based high-speed communication applications.
