Anaren, Inc has announced that its Anaren Integrated Radio (AIR) module team is partnering with middleware developer Emmoco to create the AIR Support for fast-emerging Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) applications. The AIR support for BLE solution is scheduled for release in the spring/summer of 2013. As is the case with all AIR modules, this latest model in the AIR product family is based on Texas Instruments technology, in this case TI’s C2541 SoC.
“The decision to work with Emmoco on an AIR solution for BLE is both a cultural and strategic one for us,” said Anaren’s Corporate Business Development Manager, Mark Bowyer. “On one hand, Emmoco is a fit for us because of their robust experience in the BLE environment and because they share our philosophy of doing what it takes to ensure the customer has a positive experience. On the other, we share with Emmoco a commitment to simplifying what can be a daunting technology challenge.
As we did with our AIR solution for ZigBee applications, the goal we’ve again established here is to take the RF guesswork and learning curve out of the equation, simplify the firmware and middleware aspects of the job, and, ultimately, to make it a cinch to put the resulting, modularized solution down on the board for the production phase.”
