Article Technical Rating: 8 out of 10
In this article, which was published by Make: Magazine, I explain how to develop a new product that incorporates Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) technology, also called Bluetooth Smart. If you plan to sell a new electronic product that uses BLE then you definitely want to read this article.
Bluetooth Low-Energy is the most simple wireless functionality that you can implement in a new product. It also happens to probably be the lowest cost option for wireless functionality.
Definitely don’t let the name confuse you. BLE is a great choice for much more than just low-energy products requiring a super long battery life.
As long as your product doesn’t need to stream audio or video, or transfer huge amounts of data, then Bluetooth Low-Energy is probably your best choice regardless of your product’s power requirements.
