Synopsys has launched the complete DesignWare Bluetooth Low Energy IP solution consisting of the Link Layer and PHY on TSMC's 40nm ultra-low-power (ULP) process.

The DesignWare Bluetooth Link Layer IP is compliant with the latest Bluetooth specification featuring low energy technology (v4.2) and incorporates advanced data encryption and random number generators for an authenticated, secure wireless connection. The Bluetooth PHY will support Bluetooth 5, delivering up to 5dBM of transmit power for extended range. The PHY also supports the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for connectivity over wireless networks such as Zigbee or Thread. The complete Bluetooth low energy IP solution is a part of Synopsys' broad DesignWare IP portfolio for IoT SoCs.

Synopsys' DesignWare Bluetooth Low Energy IP solution is qualified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).

Synopsys' DesignWare Bluetooth Low Energy Link Layer IP and PHY IP on TSMC 40ULP and 55ULP process technologies are available now.
