BLE plug-in speeds code generation in Bluetooth Developer Studio

September 01, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Toshiba Electronics Europe has launched a Bluetooth Developer Studio ‘plug-in’ to reduce the development time of IoT devices and other applications based around the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) components it sells.

Bluetooth Developer Studio (BDS) is a GATT-based application development tool provided by the Bluetooth SIG that helps developers create consistent Bluetooth services and applications across multiple chipsets and platforms. The Toshiba BDS plugin generates source code for standard and custom GATT (Generic Attribute Profile) server and client profiles that include GATT Services, GATT Characteristics, GATT Descriptors, GATT Operations and GAP (Generic Access Profile) Advertising. Using the tool, designers can generate ‘C’ code and rapidly create ‘ready-to-run’ test project files. These files can then be used with Toshiba’s software development kits (SDKs) and the corresponding starter kits for instant profile testing.
