System Context

The Cordio Controller software system consists of two main components:

The software system is dependent on WSF and PAL. WSF is an OS porting layer. It provides general-purpose software services such as queues, timers, and buffer management. PAL is the hardware platform abstraction layer. It provides the platform specific implementation to the hardware's BSP libraries.

System Configuration

The Cordio Stack and Profiles are designed to support single-chip SoC systems and dual-chip systems.

When operating in a single-chip system the Cordio Stack and Profiles run on the processor inside the SoC. A "thin" HCI layer adapts to the software interface of the target’s BLE Link Layer.

When operating in a dual-chip system the Cordio Stack and Profiles run on a microcontroller and communicate with a BLE Controller chip over a wired interface such as UART or SPI. A standard transport-based HCI layer manages the communication between the two devices.
