Broadcom's New Bluetooth Chips Rate Double the Talk Time, Faster Charging
Today Broadcom announced its latest series of Bluetooth silicon. Broadcom's new system-on-a-chip CMOS Bluetooth radios use 65 nanometer processes, and offer improvements across the board. According to Broadcom, the BCM2074x family of Bluetooth headset chips have new wind and noise reduction algorithms, support for multiple language voice prompts, and the ability to charge five times faster than previous chips. The 65nm processes also contributes to better power management, and Broadcom says this new series of chips should offer double the talk time when compared to its previous series of Bluetooth products. The chips support Bluetooth versions 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0 and are already sampling.
When, when, when?!!!!?
But all that matters to the end consumers is when, whne, when, probably not til the 2nd half of next year, just a guess.
