BlueChip Communication AS is a leading manufacturer of singlechip transceivers suited for LPR-applications. The company has just released its latest range of ultra low-power transceivers specially designed to make battery operated equipment wireless. The transceiver chips are supplied together with optimized reference designs and software for interfacing to host applications. BlueChip's latest development, a one square inch shielded RF module that can be surface mounted, is also available as part of an evaluation kit, and provides the quickest route to a complete LPR design. For customers having specific requirements, BlueChip may also deliver customized chips and solutions.
The company started in 1994 under the name of Gran-Jansen AS, to develop a cost effective integrated solution for local wireless signalling. Through a Joint Venture with the Norwegian PTT R&D Centre "Telenor", the company released the world first Single Chip Frequency hopping Spread Spectrum Transceiver IC in 1997.
In 2000, Gran-Jansen AS formally changed its name to BlueChip Communication AS to better reflect the line of products and geographical scope. BlueChip is today a fab-less semiconductor company based in Oslo, Norway. The company is covering all areas from silicon design to application engineering and design-in aid. Telenor is the major shareholder in the company.
Our vision is to make Local Wireless Networking solutions adapted to the emerging M2M (machine-to-machine) market. Costs, size, integrity and power consumption are the key guidelines for product marketing and development. Extensive development support is emphasised to shorten time to market for the end user.
