Bluetooth Baseband IC Integrates Flash

The MB86C00 and MBG011 baseband ICs provide all baseband signal processing and protocol hardware required by Bluetooth radios. They support a variety of external RF ICs including the companyÕs MB15H101A RF IC, ConexantÕs CX72303 and Silicon WaveÕs SiW1502. As an added feature, the MBG011 version integrates a 2-Mb flash memory in the package. The baseband ICs include an embedded ARM7 TDMI processor with firmware that implements the Bluetooth protocol. A Bluetooth-compliant SCO codec supports A-Law, micro-Law and 12-to-16 bit linear CVSD and SCO channel capabilities. The ICs also provide a pair of host controllersÑUSB v1.1 for PC applications and a 1 Mb/s UART for Bluetooth system applications. Also on board are an IEEE 1149.1 JTAG port and a flexible analog frequency synthesizer PLL that supports reference clock frequencies ranging from 8 MHz to 32 MHz. Samples of the MB86C00 and MBG011 are available in 8 mm x 8 mm 176-pin FBGA packages with prices starting at $10 each. Production volumes are projected for the second quarter of 2002.
