IPextreme Teams with Infineon to Deliver Complete Bluetooth IP Solution
December 8, 2009 -- IPextreme Inc. has extended its partnership with Infineon Technologies AG to bring Infineonís BlueMoon UniCellular Bluetooth 2.1 solution featuring Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) functionality to the broad semiconductor market in the form of a complete licensable IP core. Under the agreement, IPextreme will market, sell, and provide front-line support for Infineonís Bluetooth 2.1 IP and license it directly to customers.
Infineon is a leading supplier of Bluetooth technology and has shipped more than 130 million Bluetooth devices, including more than 24 million units of BlueMoon UniCellular to date. "Infineon will continue Bluetooth innovations and will integrate Bluetooth functionality into future generations of our baseband single-chip modems," said Ronen Ben-Hamou, Vice President and General Manager, Entry Phones at Infineon Technologies. "Communications is one of the three focus areas of Infineon. Through our agreement with our long-time partner IPextreme we extend availability of our well-proven Bluetooth solution to additional markets."
Key features of the BlueMoon UniCellular IP core
The agreement between IPextreme and Infineon builds upon an already successful relationship between the two companies, first established in June 2004, whereby IPextreme has been selling and delivering the popular Infineon C166 S and TriCore 16-bit and 32-bit microcontroller cores, and more recently MultiCAN, MLI, and MSC interface cores as well as MCDS, a multi-core debug solution, all widely used in the automotive market.
The BlueMoon IP solution is available for license today.
