Development of HID Profile-compatible Bluetooth® Module

We are pleased to announce that we have developed a Bluetooth® module that supports HID (Human Interface Design) and is suitable for embedding in devices such as remote controls, keyboards, and computer mouses.
Bluetooth®HID is a profile that realizes the use of Bluetooth® in man-machine interfaces such as remote controls, keyboards, and computer mouses. In recent years, HID support for devices such as computer operating systems and mobile phones/smartphones has increased, while the demand for HID support has strengthened in line with the increased functionality of audio visual equipment. Recognizing these market needs, we developed a HID profile-compatible Bluetooth® Module as a platform for an RF remote control.
This new product can be flexibly adapted to your terminal of choice such as a keyboard matrix or a pointing device, so it is possible to set various types of equipment to wireless equipment enabled with Bluetooth® technology. Because it provides total support for Bluetooth® functions, we can help to reduce your development man-hours by offering products suited to your terminal of choice.
We intend to continue developing wireless communication modules adapted to various uses.
This product will be exhibited at the combined IT and electronics “CEATEC Japan 2010” exhibition held from 5th October, after which we will proceed with full-scale sales activities.
