Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE)

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) (also called Bluetooth Smart) is the power- and application-friendly version of Bluetooth, built for the Internet of Things (IoT). The power-efficiency of Bluetooth with low energy functionality makes it ideal for devices that run for long periods on power sources such as coin cell batteries or energy-harvesting devices.

The native support for Bluetooth technology on every major operating system enables easy mobile application development and drop-in connectivity for cloud computing. Develop your wireless applications with Bluetooth Low Energy to leverage a proven and ubiquitous ecosystem of billions of Bluetooth-enabled devices in a growing market.
