Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) is one of the latest enhancement to Bluetooth technology and, as the name suggests, it is aimed at ultra low power devices, such as heart rate monitors, thermometers, and laboratory sensors. Due to very low power consumption, devices compliant with this standard can operate for months or even years on coin cell batteries without the need for recharging. This cutting-edge book helps you understand the whats, whys, and hows of Bluetooth LE. It includes a broad view of the technology, identifies the various building blocks and explains how they come together. The book explains the architecture of Bluetooth LE stack and the functionality provided by each of the layers. You find expert guidance in setting up your own system in a quick and efficient manner with inexpensive, easily available hardware and just a couple of PCs running Linux. Additionally, this practical volume features exercises and sample programs to help you get a first-hand feel for how the technology works.
A radical departure from conventional Bluetooth technology, Bluetooth low energy (BLE) enables breakthrough wireless applications in industries ranging from healthcare to transportation. Running on a coin-sized battery, BLE can operate reliably for years, connecting and extending everything from personal area network devices to next-generation sensors. Now, one of the standard leading developers has written the first comprehensive, accessible introduction to BLE for every system developer, designer, and engineer.
