Philips New Dual Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Chip

“We have a vision of a connected planet and a connected consumer and the mobility of those consumers is manifest in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi,” said Paul Marino, vice president and general manager of connectivity at Philips Semiconductor. “But as you move to mobile devices from the desktop, you need low power, small size and coexistence,” he said.

To those ends, the company relied on advanced system-in-package (SiP) technology to lower the overall footprint and power consumption. The technology also provides a proprietary four-wire interface between two radios to overcome coexistence issues that arise when two 2.45-GHz radios are collocated a short distance from each other on a small mobile device.
