The CSR  µEnergy SDK 1.4, the latest version of the company’s software toolkit for the speedy development of Bluetooth Smart devices, is now available. This updated version provides a complete development platform that features Bluetooth low energy profile and sample application support, and includes all the latest Bluetooth v4.0 features to enable developers to create exciting new Bluetooth Smart devices quickly and with a low initial investment. In addition, the CSR µEnergy SDK 1.4 offers out-of-the-box operation with all iOS-based devices.
Bluetooth v4.0 introduced low energy technology to the Bluetooth standard, enabling new Bluetooth Smart devices that can operate for months or even years on tiny, coin-cell batteries. With 10 qualified Bluetooth v4.0 profiles, 8 related sample applications and numerous services included with the CSR µEnergy SDK 1.4, developers can create working Bluetooth low energy applications in as little as 10 minutes, according to Paul Williamson, Senior Product Marketing Manager, CSR. Manufacturing and testing are simplified too, with the SDK’s support for the direct test modes found in test and measurement products from Rhode & Schwartz and Anritsu.
