Darfon Electronics Corp. (Darfon), a leading manufacturer of PC peripherals, has selected Cypress's PRoC™ LP programmable radio-on-chip for a new ultra-small micro dongle for wireless mice. The micro dongle, roughly the size of a U.S. dime, uses the fully-integrated CYRF69213 PRoC LP device to deliver flawless, low-power wireless connectivity to Darfon's mice.

Unlike most wireless USB dongle designs, Darfon's micro dongle targets the mobile notebook market by protruding less than 5mm from a computer, minimizing the risk of damage from accidental contact. PRoC LP provides the dongle with a dual-role single-chip solution, integrating Cypress's 2.4-GHz WirelessUSB™ LP radio and enCoRe™ II microcontroller in the same package. Cypress's ultra-low power wireless technology prolongs battery life for Darfon's mice. The industry-leading interference immunity of Cypress's AgileHID™ protocol allows the mice to operate uninterrupted in the home environment, where the 2.4-GHz spectrum is crowded with signals from Wi-Fi, microwaves, cordless phones and other devices.
