MindTree Ltd. has expanded its portfolio of Bluetooth intellectual property (IP) solutions with the launch of BlueLitE, a single-mode Bluetooth low energy (Bluetooth 4.0) suite. Designed for low-energy applications, the BlueLitE suite consists of software IP - stack and profiles, and silicon IP- base band controller, digital Phy (Physical Layer) and RF.

MindTree, which already produces classic Bluetooth (Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 3.0) and Dual Mode Bluetooth low energy (4.0) suites of IPs, said BlueLitE allows semiconductor manufacturers to easily transition to the fast-developing Bluetooth low energy market, which includes health monitors, watches, fitness equipment and medical equipment.

Raghunath Govindachari, CTO of MindTree R&D Services, said the company took into account "the various nuances of resource constrained, sensor-based devices - the primary targets for Bluetooth low-energy" while developing BlueLitE. The company cited BlueLitE's low footprint and gate count, easy portability across multiple OS and platforms and extensive interoperability testing as among its key features.

Low energy Bluetooth 4.0, the latest specification from the Bluetooth SIG, is designed to run on minute amounts of power with a range of 10m, allowing devices to be powered by coin-cell batteries for years.
