Plug-in reduces development time with Bluetooth low energy designs
Designed to reduce the development time of IoT devices and other applications based around Bluetooth low energy components, Toshiba has launched a Bluetooth Developer Studio plug-in. To create optimised code for the company’s TC356xx Bluetooth low energy ICs.
Bluetooth Developer Studio (BDS) is a GATT (Generic Attribute Profile) -based application development tool provided by the Bluetooth SIG that helps developers create consistent Bluetooth services and applications across multiple chipsets and platforms. It runs on a PC and provides graphical BLE profile design and debugging capabilities. The plug-in generates source code for standard and custom GATT server and client profiles that include GATT services, GATT characteristics, GATT descriptors, GATT operations and GAP (Generic Access Profile) advertising. Designers can generate C code and create ready-to-run test project files, which can then be used with the company‘s software development kits (SDKs) and the corresponding starter kits for instant profile testing.
