Bluetooth Basics
• A wireless technology for exchanging data over short
distances and low power consumption
• Uses short-wavelength radio transmissions in the ISM
band from 2400-2480 MHz
• Uses frequency-hoping technology @ 1600 hops/s
• A unique 48-bit address: e.g. 00 1d 43 9a e0 71
• Device Name: e.g. ABBTM
• BT standards version: v1.1, v1.2, v2.0, v2.1, v3.0, v4.0,
v4.1

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Basics
•
•
•
•
A subset of Bluetooth Core Specification v4.0
Ultra-low peak, average and idle mode power consumption
Aimed at devices running off coin-cell batteries
Not backward compatible with the previous “Classic” BT
protocols
• Two types of implementation:
 Single Mode: BLE
(“Bluetooth SMART” devices, e.g. BLE heart rate monitor;
BLE proximity sensor)
 Dual Mode: Classic BT + BLE
(“Bluetooth SMART READY” devices, e.g. smart phone,
tablet, PC)
