CSR's BlueCore takes top award at The Electronics Industry Design Awards 2002

7/12/2002 - CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) has been presented with a leading electronics industry award at a ceremony which took place on Wednesday night at the Brighton Metropole Hotel and was organised by the IML Group. The award was presented to CSR for the company’s single-chip Bluetooth solution, BlueCore, recognising that it is the market leading technology which already features in 70 percent of V1.1 qualified Bluetooth modules.

Readers of Electronic Product Design, Electronics Weekly and New Electronics magazines were all given the vote to decide which innovations would take the awards. CSR's BlueCore was recognised as the best product for the communications market, for its single-chip integration of radio, microprocessor and baseband circuits for Bluetooth. BlueCore has been well ahead of the competition and CSR launched its second generation BlueCore2 at the end of 2001 before most of the competition had even begun shipping first generation chips.

BlueCore is implemented in CMOS technology and provides a fully compliant Bluetooth system for data and voice communications. The design is optimised to require very few external RF components to allow a rapid design of the motherboard and therefore the fastest possible time-to-market at the lowest overall cost.

Glenn Collinson, co founder and marketing director, CSR, commented, "We are very proud to have won this award which acknowledges CSR's leadership in the Bluetooth market as well as the hard work and dedication of the CSR team over the last four years."
