Ericsson supplies Bluetooth Radio modules for Qualcomm Digital Demonstration Handsets
Posted: 16-Jun-2000 [Source: Ericsson press release]

[Qualcomm is demonstrating new handsets at Bluetooth Congress 2000 featuring Ericsson integrated Bluetooth radio modules.]

Monte Carlo -- Bluetooth radio modules from Ericsson Microelectronics are incorporated in digital demonstration handsets shown by Qualcomm at the Bluetooth Congress 2000 in Monte Carlo. The demonstration follows an agreement announced in February for the joint development and marketing of wireless technology solutions supporting both the Bluetooth wireless and CDMA standards.

"This application provides ample proof of the effectiveness of the concept of a complete Bluetooth radio in a single package," commented Bengt Callmer, Director of Communications, Ericsson Microelectronics. "It also demonstrates Ericsson's ability to develop Bluetooth radios for different specifications, such as CDMA and GSM. The convenience of replacing cables between devices with a wireless link will rapidly be appreciated, and we anticipate that Bluetooth radios from Ericsson will be used in many applications beyond mobile phones in the very near future."

The Qualcomm demonstration follows the introduction of the Ericsson model T36 mobile phone, which incorporates Bluetooth radio modules from Ericsson Microelectronics for GSM applications. Another product using the Bluetooth radio for GSM is the Ericsson R520 GPRS phone.

According to a recent report by the US-based market research organisation In-Stat Group, the Bluetooth semiconductor market could easily exceed 600 million units in the year 2005. Revenues for this market are predicted to be over US$1 billion by 2002, and more than US$3 billion by 2005.

Bluetooth is an open, short-range communications standard, developed jointly by Ericsson, Intel, IBM, Toshiba and Nokia. Bluetooth radios permit wireless connectivity between mobile appliances such as mobile phones and headsets or laptop computers. Other applications will be for communication between mobile and fixed appliances, for example digital camera and printer. Fixed installations are another area where Bluetooth radios will be of benefit, by eliminating the need for cables between computers and their peripherals, whether in the same or a nearby room.
