CSR announced the introduction of CSR6000, the Wi-Fi solution for connected car platforms. CSR6000 offers automotive customers the easiest route to adding Wi-Fi into their existing designs. Customers can take their designs based on CSR’s market leading BlueCore automotive grade chipsets and CSR Synergy software and complement this already validated, compatibility-tested solution with Wi-Fi. The CSR Synergy software suite includes the widely used Bluetooth stack alongside the host Wi-Fi software for the CSR6000 chipset family. This provides a simple, single software component to customers, with support for both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, allowing for easier integration, co-operation and coexistence of these technologies. CSR offers a Wi-Fi software suite supporting all of the major automotive operating systems.
“With Bluetooth attach rates exceeding 40% and Wi-Fi attach rates expected to reach 14% by 2012 according to iSuppli, CSR is well positioned to service the market need for seamless connectivity between the next generation Infotainment systems and the Wi-Fi-enabled consumer devices being brought into the vehicle,” commented Thomas Carmody, Head of Connectivity Marketing in CSR’s Automotive and PND Business Unit.
