Bluetooth Stack
Bluetooth Radio (Link Layer)
• 2.4 GHz
• 79 channels
– 1 MHz spacing
– 23 channels in some
• Gaussian Frequency
Shift Keying
• RSSI (Receiver
Signal Strength
Baseband (Physical Layer)
• Pseudorandom hopping sequence
• Synchronous Connection-Oriented (SCO)
– Audio
• Asynchronous Connection-Less (ACL)
– Data
• Error Correction
– 1/3 rate FEC
– 2/3 rate FEC
– ARQ scheme
Baseband (Physical Layer)
• Connection Modes: Active, Sniff, Hold, Park
• Device Addressing
– Bluetooth Device Address (48 bits)
– Active Member Address (3 bits)
– Parked Member Address (8 bits)
– Access Request Address
• Synchronization requires:
– Channel hopping sequence
– Phase
– Channel Access Code
Link Manager Protocol (LMP)
Manages connections and pairings
Key change
Power Control
… and much more!
Host Controller Interface (HCI)
Host Controller Interface (HCI)
Hardware Status and Registers
Bluetooth-specific commands
Flow Control
Error Recovery
Transport Layers (RS-232, UART, USB)
Logical Link Control and
Application Protocol (L2CAP)
Designed only for ACL links (i.e. no Audio)
Segmentation and Reassembly
Quality of Service
Piconet operation
Emulates RS-232 over L2CAP protocol
Accommodates types 1 and 2 devices
Supports up to 60 emulated serial ports
Does not suffer from low-power mode
latency delays
• Serial-Bluetooth adapters available
– Easily convert to wireless
• Allows for internet-type services
Service Discovery Protocol (SDP)
• Determine which services are available
and their characteristics (services)
– Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs)
– Searching for services
– Browsing for services
• List of capabilities sent during pairing
• Baby monitor
• Wristwatch communicator – 007 style
• Serial port extender
• PDA Chat
• Audio extender (speaker in other room)
• Indoor/outdoor thermometer / home weather
• Palatometer
Socket Corp.
Socket’s CF Ruggedized Serial I/O Card with high-speed serial drivers
Accessory hardware including power adapter, null modem adapter
Software tools including Socket’s Bluetooth 1.1 Certified Stack for
Windows CE devices
NOTE: Socket’s Bluetooth Stack Dev Tools allow developers to write
applications that are Bluetooth aware. These Tools provide built-in
screens for doing device discovery and pairing.
