A while ago Matthias Ringwald @mringwal (co-founder of BlueKitchen GmbH) and I were discussing a BTstack port for AVR-based embedded systems such as the Arduino. As an outcome, we co-designed the BTstack LE Arduino Shield which is now available for sale at Seeedstudio’s Bazaar.
The BTstack LE Arduino Shield is supported on the following boards – with at least 64 kB Flash (tested with Arduino.cc IDE v1.6.4):
- Arduino Mega 2560 R3
- Arduino Mega 2560
- Arduino Mega 1280
- Sparkfun Mega 3.3 V
Since the Arduino Zero is now available support for the BTstack LE Arduino Shield on the Zero is in the works and will be added to the list of supported Arduino’s or should I better say Genuino’s pretty soon.
The following sample sketches are provided in the BTstack Arduino Library to get easy access in using the shield properly:
- iBeacon Simulator
- iBeacon Scanner
- ANCS Client
- LE Central
- LE Peripheral
The detailed documentation about the BTstack LE Arduino Shield can be found at BlueKitchen’s webpage using the following link: Documentation and BTstack Arduino Library. Please feel free to discuss the use of the BTstack LE Arduino Shield in the BTstack Google Group.
