Bluetooth PHY – How it Works and How to Leverage it

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a wireless communication protocol. As with other communication protocols, BLE uses a layered design, where each layer is associated with a specific aspect of the protocol. Interlayer interaction is restricted and well-defined, and this compartmentalization provides several benefits, including abstraction.  Abstraction lowers the barrier of entry for developers looking to build applications on top of a…
