good article. Can't wait for the next one. Now I know that even though two bluetooth devices aren't connected they still can exchange information. This would be good for doing lot's of things other than authentication like... would you have an idea of what could be done with this extra info?

Is there a way you can write how this can be interfaced for Android embedded development?

BLE Broadcasting mode comes handy in cases when data could be sent with out acknowledgment, e.g. applications like proximity key fobs etc.

Unless you want to deal with some kind of attachment to the phone, the short answer is to wait until phones start supporting Bluetooth 4.0 – first phones with new Bluetooth IC are expected at the end of this year. Good thing BLE is an integral part of Bluetooth specification and its proliferation into cell phones is just a matter of time.

First WiFi rolled out WiFi direct a facility already provided by BlueTooth devices. Now BlueTooth is Moving to IEEE802.15.4 space. I think these three has to converge in single SoC at one one time you are going to use one (Atleast in Mobile Devices not in low cost low power sensors)

As you have specified the advertising interval range as 20ms to 10s, is their any defined scanning interval range?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
