xIDE for Interface Express™ is an integrated software development environment that enables developers to integrate Cambridge Consultants' fully qualified, easy-to-use Interface Express Bluetooth® profile library and BlueStack® protocol stack along with their own applications directly on to CSR's (Cambridge Silicon Radio) BlueCore™ devices.
This toolkit enables developers to achieve full-rate Bluetooth data transfer together with sophisticated application development using a BlueCore chip alone, reducing significantly the cost and time to market of Bluetooth enabled products.
Recent additions to our profile library include a display driver, keyboard scanner and full support for high quality audio.
Cambridge Consultants has been developing standards-based on-chip radio software for many years. We are Bluetooth SIG members and were involved in developing the Bluetooth standard from the outset right up to the present day
Our software forms the basis of over 65% of all qualified Bluetooth designs including mobile phones from Samsung, NEC and Alcatel. We continue to innovate with new Bluetooth software, e.g. profiles for the Continua healthcare device alliance
The leading Bluetooth chip vendor is CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) which originated within Cambridge Consultants. We continue to work closely to extend our Bluetooth software offering, enabling us to offer complete turnkey Bluetooth product development
xIDE for Interface Express is a powerful Integrated Development Environment that allows editing, compilation, build and debug within a single tool, making development more productive. Source code and build files are managed by a project filing system
xIDE for Interface Express includes qualified Bluetooth software libraries with a rich array of profiles enabling development of sophisticated products with simplified qualification
With xIDE for Interface Express comes a comprehensive application library including keypad scanners, a font painter, colour and monochrome display drivers. There is full support for the on-chip Kalimba™ DSP with popular audio codecs
Our Bluetooth development tools, libraries and profiles enable powerful applications to be developed that run completely on a CSR BlueCore device without the need for an additional external processor
Software runs natively on the XAP2 processor within BlueCore, making more processing power and better memory access available for your application. Data transfer can be at full Bluetooth data rate of 2.1 Mbit/s
Alternatively, a simple UART protocol can be used to interface to other microcontrollers that can run bigger applications, utilising the BlueCore for Bluetooth protocols and communication
Development of high-performance on-chip software can shorten development times, reduce product costs and enhance the competitiveness of your Bluetooth enabled products
Our qualified Bluetooth profiles include AVRCP, A2DP, BIP, BPP, CTP, DUN, FAX, FTP, GAP, GOEP, HFP, HCRP, HSP, HID, ICP, MED, OPP, PAN, SAP, SDAP, SPP and SYN
Reference applications provide guidance to developers, simplifying development and accelerating projects. These include a cordless phone with colour display and sophisticated user functions – both Bluetooth and other radio systems
More reference applications: CTP access point, printer interface, in-car hands-free with phonebook download, advanced headset, phone access data acquisition and control, storage device access, serial port remote control and data transfer
