Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz”) (NYSE MKT: MCZ) announced today the Company’s wireless range of GameSmart gaming products for mobile and smart devices will utilize CSR’s µEnergy ® Bluetooth 4.0 chip.
CSR is a global provider of innovative silicon and software solutions, and the µEnergy™ chip offers industry leading battery life and low latency, enabling GameSmart control products to offer core gaming experiences across a wide range of mobile and smart devices. In addition, the µEnergy chip provides simplified setup with all Bluetooth 4.0 compatible devices.
“By combining our gaming experience with CSR’s Bluetooth experience we were able to develop a unique implementation based upon the µEnergy chip that achieves data transfer rates as low as 7.5ms, much lower than the 20 to 50 ms rates that most games poll for data.” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “The result is Bluetooth Smart gaming devices that perform at or around the same level as a wireless console or PC control product. For that reason, we’re confident that our GameSmart control products will deliver gaming performance unmatched by other Bluetooth devices in the market place today.”
