Bluetooth Smart mouse and keyboard combo
21 March 2012, Computer/Embedded Technology

Nordic Semiconductor recently demonstrated the nRFready μBlue Desktop – the world’s first fully functional reference design for a Bluetooth low energy (or Bluetooth Smart as Bluetooth low energy devices and sensors are now being marketed to consumers) wireless mouse and keyboard combo.

Working with a laptop with built-in support for Bluetooth Smart devices and running a developer preview of Windows 8, this reference design delivers over a year of battery lifetime for the mouse and up to 10 years for the keyboard from a single pair of AA batteries.

The nRFready Blue Desktop is based on Nordic’s Blue nRF8001 Bluetooth low energy connectivity IC. It delivers a wireless mouse and keyboard battery life performance comparable to Nordic’s proprietary 2,4 GHz RF solutions, but with the ability to operate without a USB dongle on Bluetooth Smart Ready computers.
