In spite of
its rather tumultuous beginnings, Bluetooth has emerged as a significant technology for
short range connectivity. Now that the Holy Grail of a true System in Package (SIP) Bluetooth
module is available, product designers no longer need to have RF expertise on-hand to
successfully integrate Bluetooth into headsets, printers, PDAs, keyboards, mice, security
systems, and a plethora of other applications. Way back in the late 1990s, when Bluetooth
fist arrived in concept, a target price of $3 was proposed as the level at which adoption
would be ubiquitous. We are finally there and indeed, Bluetooth technology is popping
up all over the map. Even kids' toys are incorporating Bluetooth ICs. Here are some of
the most prominent vendors of Bluetooth products to assist you in your own endeavors.
