scene. If anyone knows what became of it, please send us an email. The link below is not active.
Previously we Spotlighted GRAN-JANSEN AS, because we were impressed with their Single Chip Frequency
Hop Transceiver IC. GRAN-JANSEN later changed its name to BlueChip Communication AS.
They are a leading manufacturer of
singlechip transceivers suited for LPR-applications. The company also 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. Click on their logo below for more Information:
Editor's Note: BlueChip Communication was acquired by Micrel Semiconductor Inc.
in late 2001 and is now Micrel's Center of Competence for RadioWire products. They are
responsible for product development and sales/marketing support. You can visit Micrel's
section on Low-Power Radio Products by clicking the link below.
The Week of May 8 we Spotlighted eLabs, Inc. Take a look -- they have great Pic microprocessor based products! Editor's Note 6/15/05: eLabs doesn't appear to exist any more, at least not one with Pic products.
