STMicroelectronics Shrinks Next-Gen Bluetooth

STMicroelectronics introduced a new design to connect an antenna to a Bluetooth transceiver using a single chip. Two new integrated balun devices can be used to convert the antenna signal to a balanced pair of signals as required by the Bluetooth transceiver. The company said the new devices occupy up to 70% less printed-circuit-board area, simplify design and assembly, and ensure better balanced signal channels with low losses, thereby improving wireless performance.
