Ericsson Introduces Bluetooth Stereo Headset Suite for OEMs

6/9/2004 - Ericsson Technology Licensing has added to its line of highly optimized Bluetooth Suites. The new package has been assembled for the benefit of OEMs who are looking to develop a whole new type of headset, the Bluetooth Stereo Headset.

The ever-growing demand for multimedia products and services, particularly within the mobile phone industry, continues to give rise to new types of products.

"Mobile phone makers today are competing to see who can pack the most multimedia features into new products," says Johan Åkesson, Vice President Marketing at Ericsson Technology Licensing. "Streaming audio and video, built-in MP3 players, MMS, video call, etc., all create a strong case for Bluetooth headsets that can function as stereo headphones as well."

Ericsson's new Bluetooth Stereo Headset Suite is a complete package for developing advanced headset applications. These applications will enable a device functioning as stereo headphones to instantaneously switch to headset functionality, for example when receiving an incoming call.

The Ericsson Core Bluetooth Stereo Headset Software B-F7 included in the suite is based on Ericsson's Microstack, a scaled down software stack optimized for easy integration into products with limited resources such as the headset. An SBC codec and all profiles required for headset/headphone applications are also included, as well as example applications that help developers minimize development time.

The Bluetooth Stereo Headset Suite joins a family of other Ericsson suites optimized specifically for mobile phones, headsets, PDAs and wireless keyboards and mice.
