TEXAS INSTRUMENTS UNVEILS FIRST COIN CELL DEMO FOR BLUETOOTH.

At the Bluetooth low energy technology conference in Munich, Germany, Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE:TXN) has showcased the world's first coin cell demo for the new Bluetooth low energy open standard based on TI's upcoming CC2540 single-mode system-on-chip. Bluetooth low energy enables applications, such as sports and fitness equipment, medical and health, home and office, and mobile accessories, to use coin cell and energy harvesting solutions to operate for more than a year on a tiny button cell battery without recharging.
