The new BB16CF950+ ASIC is perfect for third party vendors looking for a cost effective means to build boards for a CompactFlash Type I/II BlueCore designs from PDA's and cellular phones to laptops and point-of-sale terminals.
The BB16CF950+ is a UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver-Transmitter) with a host interface suitable for direct connection to a CompactFlash or 16-bit PC Card bus. Once installed and configured by the host OS it provides:
- an eight-byte programming interface which may be configured to be identical to that of the TL16C750 UART from Texas Instruments
- ability to be configured to fit the requirements of RS232, RS422/485, or BlueTooth applications

The key component of the CompactFlash reference design is the new CompactFlash interface ASIC, the BB16CF950+, that shrinks the active parts counts of BlueToothCF and PCMCIA cards to two chips, enabling glueless interface (no extra components needed) to both CompactFlash/16 bit PCMCIA bus and CSR's BlueCore BlueTooth chips which power 70% of the world's BlueTooth designs.
