Cambridge Consultants releases a software development toolset that extends the application potential of the leading single-chip platform for Bluetooth applications, CSR's BlueCore family of ICs. The tools allow users to develop application software to run natively on the XAP RISC microcontroller embedded in all BlueCore devices. This frees up computing power, providing developers with flexibility to implement hostless, Bluetooth enabled products, based on a single device. xIDE for Interface Express provides a complete software development kit (SDK) for developing standalone BlueCore applications with BlueCore running both a full Bluetooth protocol stack and application software (rather than being controlled by a host processor). It also includes a large library of qualified Bluetooth Profiles the software that defines how Bluetooth works in specific applications. These tools are provided within an integrated development environment (IDE) that simplifies software projects through a highly-graphical software project management environment and user interface.
