Bluetooth Specification

The Bluetooth wireless specification defines a low-power, technology that provides a standardized platform for wireless connection between mobile devices and products. The Bluetooth wireless specification includes both link layer and application layer definitions for product developers. Bluetooth radios operate in the 2.4 GHz radio spectrum ensuring communication compatibility worldwide. These radios use a spread spectrum, frequency hopping, full-duplex signal at up to 1600 hops/s. The signal hops among 79 frequencies at 1 MHz intervals to give a high degree of interference immunity. While point-to-point connections are supported, the specification allows up to seven simultaneous connections by a single radio. The standard is designed to eliminate the need for hauling many disparate cables to link devices for mobile applications. It enables wireless communications over distances of 10 cm to 10 m.
Other Standards: The standard is IEEE 802.15.1- compatible. Unlike other wireless standards, the Bluetooth specification includes both link layer and application layer definitions for product developers which supports data, voice, and content-centric applications.
