ClarinoxBlue delivers a simple and flexible approach enabling the engineer to spend more time on the application development and less time on the inner workings of Bluetooth technology
ClarinoxBlue is a developer-friendly software protocol stack, designed exclusively for the development of embedded Bluetooth applications. The stack handles complex applications utilising both multiple profiles and multiple local Bluetooth devices, allowing an application to interact with several local Bluetooth devices simultaneously.
ClarinoxBlue provides a built-in protocol analyser as a debugging tool to simplify debugging of multi-profile and multi-technology applications. This tool is especially beneficial for highly complex applications such as forming complex networks.
Provision for interfacing the stack with legacy applications with the use of a virtual com port driver is also provided. The Clarinox embedded Bluetooth stack runs on many embedded operating systems supported by ClarinoxSoftFrame middleware.
The ClarinoxBlue Bluetooth protocol stack is contained within the ClarinoxSoftFrame portable framework, allowing users to develop their applications using C/C++ on a desktop environment (Microsoft Visual Studio or GNU tools) and move directly to the target platform with confidence of compatibility. Combined with the compactness of the protocol stack, this enables use with a number of architectures.
The simplicity of the ClarinoxBlue API greatly reduces application development times. In fact, for most applications, the code written based upon ClarinoxBlue will only be one third of the number of lines required for other stacks. The plain language style also facilitates faster test and debug cycles. Clarinox provided the first multi-profile MP3 streaming application as early as 2004, based on the award winning ClarinoxSoftFrame architecture and ClarinoxBlue protocol stack.
