The seventh generation BlueCore silicon from CSR is here. According to CSR, BlueCore7 is the world's first device integrating Bluetooth v2.1+EDR, Bluetooth low energy, eGPS (enhanced Global Positioning System), and FM transmit and receive technologies on a single chip. The company stressed that the BlueCore7 significantly reduces the power, size, cost and complexity of adding multiple radios into a mobile phone.

CSR has integrated Bluetooth low energy, eGPS and FM Tx and Rx technologies into BlueCore7 alongside an enhanced Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR radio which delivers +10dBm Tx and –91 dBm Rx. These enhancements, says CSR, help BlueCore7 to extend the overall range and across-body performance to provide better audio quality.

Comments Matthew Phillips, senior VP of CSR's mobile handset connectivity strategic business unit, "BlueCore7 is a truly intelligent new architecture that integrates more wireless technologies on a single chip than any other product on the market. Building upon our strengths in Bluetooth and our expertise in embedded wireless technologies, BlueCore7 delivers a robust and comprehensive solution that boasts the industry's leading power and performance figures."

BlueCore7 is available in QFN and WLCSP packaging and will be in volume production from Q4.
