Bluetooth Low Energy

Bluetooth Low Energy (a.k.a Bluetooth LE, BTLE, Bluetooth Smart)

mbed BLE Roadmap


mbed’s BLE roadmap covers two main issues: extending vendor support for BLE, and improving our implementation.

Vendor Support

We’re adding support of our BLE solution to more vendors, so that you can have a wider selection of platforms for your projects.

Implementation Improvement

We’re working on switching Bluetooth versions, and improving our implementations and methods.

Stack Adaptation layer

We're adding a common and more importantly complete adaptation layer over Bluetooth stack. BLE API will be based on this low level adaptation layer but other projects will have the opportunity to build their own abstractions on top of the BLE adaptation layer.

GATT Client improvements

We're working on adding support for all GATT client procedures and better error handling.

GATT server improvements

We plan to improve the semantic of GATT service declarations as well as reducing the memory consumption of Gatt characteristics.
