HARDWARE TOOLS: DEVA platform eases Bluetooth development

LONDON — The DEVA development platform from Cambridge Consultants is for the rapid development of Bluetooth products and mobile accessories. It enables rapid prototyping and test of accessory products before committing to final product hardware.

It uses the BlueCore-5-Multimedia device from Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR), and can be used to develop a range ofBluetooth products. These can range from mobile phone accessories and headsets, including for Apple's iPhone, to wireless payment systems, industrial remote control devices, sports activity monitors or telehealth sensors that can be compliant with the Continua Health Alliance's guidelines.

The DEVA platform has been optimized to work with Cambridge Consultants' existing software tools and libraries, including its generic Bluetooth tool, xIDE for Interface Express, their Continua Compliant wireless health platform, VENA, and their Internet service accessory platform, CatchNet. DEVA can also be used with CSR's BlueLab development suite.

DEVA includes a 128×128 monochrome LCD display, three user-interface buttons and LEDs allowing rich user interfaces to be developed for the product. With USB, serial and MicroSD interfaces for data integration, a range of GPIO, and both digital and analog stereo audio connection, it can support development of complex products that have the lowest possible cost in their final manufactured form. Being battery powered, it provides a completely wireless experience.
