Prior to Android, Samsung has released BLE SDK
Samsung BLE SDK beta
Bluetooth low energy (BLE) is a wireless computer network technology which is aimed at novel applications in the healthcare, fitness, security, and home entertainment industries1). Compared to "Classic" Bluetooth, BLE is intended to provide considerably reduced power consumption and lower cost, whilst maintaining a similar communication range2).
Samsung BLE SDK allows you to develop your own BLE applications which use the Bluetooth Low Energy Client and Server based Protocols. Developers can utilize rich set of API’s provided by our framework to develop Bluetooth 4.0 based applications.
The APIs provided by our sdk gives a set of standard GATT procedures and is generic enough to be used with all Bluetooth LE Client and Server based profiles. Below is the basic architecture of our Bluetooth Low Energy stack and framework.
Samsung BLE architecture uses Bluedroid stack which coupled with Samsung framework provides the developer with wide variety of APIs to choose from and provides greater control over Gatt Services, characteristics and descriptors. The framework exposes distinct client and server based classes which can be imported by the application to implement the BLE profiles.
※This SDK is for Samsung Galaxy devices with Android 4.2 and above.
