The iPhone 4S is the first smart phone that supports the new Bluetooth 4.0 standard. This opens the door for designers to create a new bread of low power wireless sensing devices that can communicate with a mobile device while still providing connectivity to traditional Bluetooth headset and HID devices.

"The release of iPhone 4S is a great milestone for the entire Bluetooth community and a beginning of a new era in Bluetooth accessory development. I am certain that Android and Windows mobile devices will quickly follow." remarks Mikko Savolainen, VP Product Management.

Bluegiga Technologies has developed a reference platform for OEMs to quickly develop and deploy Bluetooth 4.0 applications. The reference platform consists of our BLE112 Bluetooth 4.0 single mode development kit, Bluetooth 4.0 software development kit, and a reference application for iOS5. Bluegiga also provides example applications for accessories such as proximity tags, heart rate sensors, and thermometers. This will simplify the development process for designers, reducing the time to market.

BLE112 development kit consists of Bluegiga's BLE112 Bluetooth 4.0 single mode development board with integrated accelerometer, display, temperature, potentiometer, and battery sensor. The development kit will allow OEMs to quickly prototype Bluetooth 4.0 hardware and gives software developers a platform to rapidly develop applications.

Bluegiga's Bluetooth 4.0 software development kit includes tools for creating Bluetooth 4.0 profiles with simple XML schema and standalone Bluetooth 4.0 applications utilizing the processing power of the BLE112 Bluetooth 4.0 single mode module.

The final element that pulls everything together is Bluegiga's heart rate reference application for Apple's iOS5. This example shows developers how to connect Bluetooth 4.0 devices with iOS5 exchanging data back and forth over the Bluetooth link.
