Anaren Wireless Group has announced the release for its first integrated radio (AIR) for WICED™ Smart Bluetooth module and Atmosphere on-line developer platform as part of a strategic engagement with Broadcom Corporation. This small footprint, globally pre-certified surface mount Bluetooth module is supported by Anaren’s exclusive development team that significantly simplifies the task of creating a wireless connection between an embedded and mobile device. The engagement advances the mutual goal to support designers, innovators, and end-equipment manufacturers looking for intuitive, easy-to-use developer tools, like Atmosphere, that will simplify the challenge of ‘going wireless’ and speed up their time to market.In beta trials, customers were able to get their product “proof of concept” running in 90 minutes or less. Anaren’s goal is to help innovative customers get a wireless product into the market in around 90 days while lowering the project development cost with an easy-to-use developer environment. Beyond the module itself, the goal of Atmosphere is to enable any OEM to quickly and painlessly turn a mobile Bluetooth Smart device — such as an IPad, IPhone or Android-based device — into a mobile control panel.
