Fujitsu says it brings innovation from many years of industry-leading multi-chip module design and production experience, resulting in smaller wireless module package sizes that consume less power than competing products.

Fujitsu's initial product offering includes the following semi-standard devices (see also diagram, above):

- Bluetooth Class 1 / Class 2 in module form, a module with integrated antenna, and a full module with integrated antenna and connector interface;
- Ethernet 802.11 b/g module, b/g/n module;
- Ethernet / Bluetooth combination (802.11b/g + Bluetooth) module; and
- Global Positioning System (GPS) module.
Examples of primary applications for these modules include vehicle tracking and navigation, industrial handheld terminals, smart phones, personal media devices, digital audio/visual devices, portable medical devices, e-books and netbooks, with many more emerging.

Also included in Fujitsu's initial offering is an array of services for embedded wireless and wired networking products, including driver development, software support and porting services.

Fujitsu plans to continue to expand its wireless module line to meet new market demands. Currently under development are Ethernet a/b/g, and a/b/g/n modules, the company says.

Fujitsu Components America Inc. markets and distributes electronic components throughout North and Central America. Products include relays, connectors, input and pointing devices, touch panels, LCD console drawers, KVM switches, and thermal printers. The company is headquartered in Sunnyvale, CA.
