We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Bluetooth wireless technology", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.

Start with the news release Adapter provides easy Bluetooth connections from connectBlue, which we summarised at the time by saying "connectBlue's adapter implements the master side of the IC bus interface and makes it possible to wirelessly enable a number of slaves on an IC bus". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Smartphone supports efficient compression from Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS: "Fraunhofer IIS MPEG-4 audio and video coding technology is helping Palm enhance its multimedia offerings in the new Palm Treo 700p smartphone".

In May 2006, we covered the news from Ezurio concerning its Bluetooth Intelligent Serial Modules - take a look at Bluetooth modules enhance automotive security which says: "A new car security system that identifies car owners through the Bluetooth element of their mobile phones is set to revolutionise the fight against car thieves".

Take a look also at the news release from Texas Instruments (April 2001-March 2006), Bluetooth and FM coexist in harmonious RF chip, as well as Software helps Bluetooth run over UWB radio from Open Interface North America, and Creativity is key to keyboard success from Venture Development Corp.
