Type-approved USB dongle simplifies Bluetooth implementation
Adding Bluetooth connectivity to a system has become as hard as adding a USB port, following the introduction by Flint of a new miniature USB-Bluetooth adaptor.

The Mitsumi adaptor from Flint needs no further involvement from the system developer: no hardware design, no software stack, not even type approval. The only requirements are a standard USB port, and the need to ensure that the tiny antenna at the end of the dongle protrudes from the case.

The Mitsumi USB-Bluetooth Adapter provides an easy to implement wireless connection to other parts of the system, or to the growing range of Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, printers, modems and home or office networks. USB is used as the interface between Bluetooth and the system, providing a 5V power supply and high-speed 1MB/s connection, as well as hot-plug-and-play ability.

The USB dongle features a highly integrated chip, with all RF and baseband circuitry, Bluetooth Lower Protocol and USB core all built into a single CMOS device. Its onboard antenna takes micro miniaturisation a stage further: the entire adapter is just 20mm wide, less than 8mm thick and is 60mm in length including the A-type male USB connector.

A wide range of functionality - such as home networking and Internet access - benefits from broad PC profile support: including generic access, service discovery, serial port, LAN access, dial-up networking, fax, generic object exchange and object push application profiles.
