CSR plc has launched a fully flexible and reprogrammable development platform for low-cost headsets. Based on the BlueCore4-audio flash chip, BlueVOX Flash combines a high-performance, low-power Bluetooth radio with 6Mbits of on-chip flash memory and a comprehensive SDK, putting designers in full control of the headset software.

The BlueLab SDK includes full source code for Headset v5, CSR's latest headset software, which has been extensively tested by CSR to ensure compatibility with a wide range of Bluetooth phones. These tests include more than 55 popular Bluetooth-enabled phones and cover all headset functions in detail. A full test report is available from CSR, so headset designers can be sure that they are starting from a stable code base.

Reuse of code across BlueCore silicon reduces time-to-market. Software written for BlueVOX Flash is fully compatible with other silicon in CSR's portfolio, offering an easy migration path to BlueCore5-Multimedia for headset designers wanting to add stereo functionality, echo/noise cancellation or an algorithm from one of CSR's eXtension partners.

CSR also offers BlueCore4-Audio ROM, a ROM-based chip that is pin-compatible with BlueCore4-Audio Flash, providing a quick route to cost reduction.
