SAN JOSE, USA & SINGAPORE: Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, announced the production availability for its ADNS-7630 Bluetooth (BT) 2.1 LaserStream System-on-Chip (SoC) navigation sensor for wireless mouse applications.
It is the industry’s first laser navigation sensor to integrate a BT 2.1 transceiver, stand-alone baseband processor and VCSEL surface illuminator into a single package. Compared to LED-based mice, laser mice track reliably on a greater variety of smooth surfaces. The ADNS-7630 device enhances battery life - extending usage to more than 6 months from two AA battery cells - and simplifies Bluetooth mouse design, helping shorten time to market.
Avago’s LaserStream technology provides precise high-speed tracking on virtually all surfaces - a feature that is attractive to both laptop users and gaming enthusiasts.
With this proprietary technology, ADNS-7630 based mice feature high-speed motion detection of up to 30 inches per second (ips) and 8 g acceleration detection. In addition, laser power on all ADNS-7630 devices is pre-calibrated in Avago's factory to meet IEC/EN60825-1 Class 1 Eye Safety standards, reducing assembly time and lowering cost for the manufacturer.
