Bluetooth milestone: 100 million chips
Posted on 24-May-2005 22:42. | Tags Filed under: News.

Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Incorporated (ASE) has assembled, tested, and shipped over 100 million Bluetooth chips for CSR.

CSR has experienced exponential growth in the Bluetooth market, and as of December 2004, it had captured 45% market share, an increase of 23% over 2003. CSR's share of design wins also continues to be the highest across all applications, with the company providing Bluetooth chips for 55% of all mobile phone handsets, and 83% of all laptop computers.

According to IC Insights, the Bluetooth chipset segment of the total wireless networking market is forecasted to grow from US$580 million to US$1.5 billion over the 2004-2008 time period. IC Insights also believes that the ASP of a Bluetooth chipset in 2008 will be about one quarter of the price in 2002, fuelling wider-spread adoption.
