Bluetooth® Solutions from Toshiba

As a founding member of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), we are deeply committed to making Bluetooth connectivity a pervasive and ubiquitous presence in our everyday lives. With decades of proven manufacturing experience, our advanced 65 nm RF-CMOS process and our highly regarded Bluetooth stack and profile software, we enable high-quality, cost-effective Bluetooth-compliant designs with a quick ramp-up to large-volume production. Our full-spectrum silicon and software business model delivers everything you need for your Bluetooth design.

Bluetooth Controller ICs

The Toshiba Bluetooth 4.0 family of controller ICs supports new applications enabled by the introduction of Bluetooth Low Energy (LE), the key 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 network with a minimum use of power. 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 Bluetooth specifications before the release of 4.0 defined the support for higher data rates to carry digital audio or for transferring files: Basic Rate (BR), Extended Data Rate (EDR), and the High Speed (HS) data rates. Dual-mode BT 4.0 controllers support both these "Classic Bluetooth" operating modes as well as BT LE. Single-mode BT 4.0 controllers implement only BT LE and are able to reach the very low power levels required by battery-powered devices.

Toshiba's first BT 4.0 controllers are dual-mode, supporting both classic and LE modes, giving them a broad field of application. There are many Bluetooth profiles, with a broad range of processing requirements. A typical implementation consists of a host processor (for example, a PC, applications processor or microcontroller) connected to a BT controller via USB or high-speed UART.

The Toshiba dual-mode BT 4.0 controllers are able to run simple BT profiles and application code, in addition to the BT radio functions, enabling low-cost, single-chip BT systems.
