Synopsys BLE System Achieves Bluetooth 5 Qualification
Synopsys has announced that its DesignWare Bluetooth Low Energy Link Layer IP and PHY IP has achieved Bluetooth 5 qualification and been declared compliant by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. This qualification signifies that it functions properly within a system-on-chip (SoC).
The DesignWare Bluetooth IP solution has been validated with third-party software stack providers, including SEARAN, to provide designers with a complete hardware and software solution. The IP has been tested in third-party interoperability workshops to ensure that it operates reliably in real-world environments. DesignWare Bluetooth Low Energy PHY IP delivers up to a 60 percent smaller area compared to the previous Bluetooth PHY solution, the company reports, providing designers with a compact, low-power wireless IP solution for such Internet of Things (IoT) applications as medical, smart appliances, smart thermostats and wearables.
Synopsys' Bluetooth 5 Link Layer and PHY IP solutions support Bluetooth mesh and enable secure wireless connectivity with extended reach, and data rates up to 2 megabytes per second with an integrated on-chip transceiver matching network. The PHY also supports the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for connectivity over wireless networks such as ZigBee or Thread.
"Connected devices like wearables, smart locks and smart thermostats require Bluetooth technology to communicate wirelessly at extremely low power," said John Koeter, Synopsys' VP of marketing for IP, in the prepared statement. "By providing a silicon-proven and qualified Bluetooth Low Energy Link Layer and PHY IP solution, Synopsys enables designers to integrate the required functionality into their SoCs to ensure compliance, interoperability and robustness of their designs."
