CSR Among Fiercest 15 Top Wireless Companies

2/4/2003 - CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) announced that it has been selected as a member of FierceWireless’s annual list of "The Fiercest 15", designating it one of the top 15 wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless, an internationally recognized email newsletter for the wireless industry, evaluated more than 1,200 privately held wireless companies based on vision, revenue potential, quality of deals and partnerships, and competitive position.

"Bluetooth is gaining mainstream adoption, and CSR is sitting pretty to exploit this market," said Stephen Wellman, Editor of FierceWireless. "Its single-chip Bluetooth system is a cheaper, better alternative than what’s out there now."

CSR specialises in providing single-chip radio devices to the global market for short-range wireless communications, including BluetoothTM. CSR was the first company in the world to offer a true single-chip Bluetooth solution with BlueCore, a fully integrated 2.4 GHz radio, baseband and microcontroller. The company has a growing list of major international customers including Microsoft Corp, Samsung, Sony, Compaq, IBM, Fujitsu, LG, ALPS, TDK, 3Com, Mitsumi, Siemens and Motorola, who have already used CSR’s BlueCore in the development of a range of Bluetooth products.

"FierceWireless is recognised for its advanced understanding of wireless trends and businesses," said Eric Janson, CSR's worldwide vice president, marketing. "Being selected as a member of The Fiercest 15 is an honour that underscores CSR’s growing prominence in the wireless community."

The Fiercest 15 celebrates the spirit of being "fierce" – daring to be innovative and aggressive, even in a difficult market environment. The list is available in today’s issue of FierceWireless and on the FierceWireless Web site at www.fiercewireless.com.

FierceWireless publishes a daily email briefing read by more than 40,000 executives in more than 100 countries. Since its inception in March 2000, FierceWireless has been recognised as a must-read source of news and intelligence for the wireless industry.
