Toshiba releases new Bluetooth components

Toshiba announced the new TC35654 integrated chipset for creating Bluetooth v1.1 interfaces. They include the RF path, ARM7TDMI core, signal normalization circuitry, buffer RAM and ROM firmware.

Unlike the previous developments, featuring the RF circuitry on bipolar transistors, the new RF circuitry is made using the CMOS technology. This enabled to pack the chip into the miniature 113-pin PFLGA (Plastic Fine-Pitch Land Grid Array) casing just 7x7x0.8 mm in size. The chip core features the technology licensed from Nokia, enabling the high-level compatibility with other Bluetooth platforms.

The 0.18-micron samples will arrive to the market in February 2003, the launch of volume production is expected in July. Initially, the company plans to ship up to 50,000 units per month to increase the number by the ten times in early 2004. The production is expected to feature the 0.13-micron process by that time.

Besides, today Toshiba started to ship the TB31296F Bluetooth RF path made using the SiGe Bi-CMOS technology.

Hynix announces 500MHz DDR-I chips

Hynix announced new 128Mbit DDR-I SDRAM chips operating at 500MHz and organized as 4Mx32 – HY5DU283222, intended mainly for graphics cards and network appliances.

The new chips feature 144-pin FBGA, have 32-bit interface and provide up to 1Gbps throughput. The samples of 500MHz-128Mb (4Mx32) DDR-I SDRAM chips have already been shipped to Hynix partners. The release of DDR-II chips is expected in Q1 2003, then we should see the new 500 MHz 4Mx32 DDR-II SDRAM.

AMD officially releases Athlon MP 2400+

Today AMD announced the new Athlon MP 2400+, being the logical continuation of the dual-CPU server and workstation line. The processors operate at 2.0GHz, support 266MHz FSB, and are made at the Fab30 in Dresden using 0.13-micron process technology. The wholesale price (over 1000-unit quantities) of AMD Athlon MP 2400+ is $228. Systems on the new CPUs have already been announced by 47 companies.

Along with the new processor, AMD announced the price cut for the previous Athlon MP products. The wholesale price of Athlon MP 2200+ (1.80GHz) was reduced by 7% from $224 to $208, of Athlon MP 2000+ (1.67GHz) – by 14% from $178 to $153.
