“Wibree” from Nokia outstanding Bluetooth technology


Posted: 06 Oct 2006

A new short-range wireless connection was uncovered by Nokia being smaller and more energy-efficient than current Bluetooth technology that is possible to be used in small devices such as watches.

Nokia Research Center developed a new technology called “Wibree” that can work together with Bluetooth short-range wireless connections and using just a fraction of the power. It is the first open technology able to offer connectivity between mobile devices or Personal Computers, and such small devices as watches, wireless keyboards. This technology is very advantageous because of the broad possibilities it offers.

The settles aim is to make the technology broadly available to the market by means of open forum. Wibree interoperability specification will be defined together with a group of companies who represent semiconductor manufacturers. The first commercial version of the interoperability specification will be available during the second quarter of the year 2007.

Broadcom Corporation, CSR, Epson and Nordic Semiconductor are the members of the group defining the specification.

Performance within 0-10 m range and data rate of 1Mbps with Bluetooth is completed by Wibree technology. The advantages of the Wibree are small size and low cost as well as very low power consumption. Wibree can be implemented as stand-alone chip or as Bluetooth-Wibree dual-mode chip.
