Avago Technologies has developed a fully integrated Bluetooth 2.1 system-on-chip (SoC) Laserstream navigation sensor for wireless mouse applications and other integrated input devices.

The compact laser navigation sensor engine integrates a Bluetooth transceiver, standalone baseband processor and VCSEL illumination into a single-chip package to provide a SoC solution that is said to provide fast and secure connectivity, and easy integration into mouse designs.

Additionally, the laser sensor has several features that can be configured via an external EEPROM to simplify mouse designs.

Avago’s Bluetooth 2.1 SoC laser sensor enables simple pairing for easy and secure connectivity with the Bluetooth host, as well as power savings to help extend battery life.

The laser-navigation sensor engine was developed to meet the demands of designers requiring mouse sensor products that offer enhanced performance and easy integration to help shorten their product development cycles.

Avago’s SoC Bluetooth navigation engine is fully synched between the Bluetooth navigation core and baseband.

It is said to provide good tracking on virtually all surfaces and is capable of high-speed motion detection of up to 30ips and acceleration of 8g to help improve the overall end-user experience.

Additionally, the SoC mouse sensor is designed to support up to 10 buttons, both mechanical and optical z-wheel, and tilt-wheel functions.

The Bluetooth laser sensor also meets IEC/EN60825-1 Class 1 Eye Safety standards and does not require laser calibration, which helps to reduce assembly time and design cost.

The motion output of Avago’s Bluetooth laser sensor is a selectable 12-bit HID data-reporting format.

It also has a standalone baseband processor with an integrated 2.4Ghz transceiver.

The built-in radio provides low-power and robust communications for applications operating in the 2.4GHz unlicensed ISM band.
