Manufacturers & Services
In spite of its rather tumultuous beginnings, Bluetooth has emerged as a significant technology for short range
connectivity. Now that the Holy Grail of a true System in Package (SIP) Bluetooth module is available, product
designers no longer need to have RF expertise on-hand to successfully integrate Bluetooth into headsets, printers,
PDAs, keyboards, mice, security systems, and a plethora of other applications. Way back in the late 1990s, when
Bluetooth fist arrived in concept, a target price of $3 was proposed as the level at which adoption would be
ubiquitous. We are finally there and indeed, Bluetooth technology is popping up all over the map. Even kids' toys
are incorporating Bluetooth ICs. Here are some of the most prominent vendors of Bluetooth products to assist you
in your own endeavors.
My policy is to only list companies that actually manufacture product or offer services related to the page title subject.
Product distributors and sales representatives are not listed (they have their own page). This helps guarantee that each
listing offers a unique product or service. NOTICE: I am no longer adding hyperlinks due to so many companies asking to
be removed because of some issue with Google Statistics. Your best bet is to use a search engine to find company
websites directly. If you are interested in advertising, please visit my
