CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) and IAR Systems have signed a partnership around both companies' products and services. IAR has adapted and optimized its Embedded Bluetooth protocol stack and the PreQual debug and test system to provide a development and test solution for products based on CSR's BlueCore technology.
IAR has integrated BCSP (BlueCore Serial Protocol), CSR's multi-protocol communications link. BCSP aids product design by supporting flexible partitioning of the Bluetooth software stack between host and Bluetooth subsystem.
The compact Embedded Bluetooth protocol stack from IAR Systems is designed for reduced consumption of CPU and ROM memory resources.
The IAR PreQual debug and test system can use the CSR products as a reference hardware for debug and test of new Bluetooth products. IAR PreQual performs Bluetooth conformance and profile testing according to the Bluetooth Qualification Program, and creates message sequence charts and test reports suitable for review by Bluetooth Qualification Bodies (BQB's).
