Overview

Description

Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) Protocol Stack is a Bluetooth 5.0 qualified protocol stack that operates on RL78/G1D (optional functions added after Core Specification 4.2 are not supported). It is equipped API for realizing Bluetooth LE wireless communication and API for implement a custom profile. Moreover, it supports two types of system configurations (embedded and modem configuration).

Virtual UART Application

Responding to demands for wireless serial communication and wireless communication between embedded modules, we have developed a virtual UART application that works with Bluetooth Low Energy technology. It has a simple AT command execution function to control and set Bluetooth LE communication, thereby realizing virtual UART communication where characters are transmitted/received via Bluetooth LE communication.

System Configuration/Modem Configuration

For Application Development Using a Host Microcontroller

For modem configuration, Bluetooth LE communication is realized via serial connection of a host microcontroller and RL78/G1D MCU. It is possible to flexibly respond to demands such as adding Bluetooth LE to an existing application. We also have host samples for Renesas microcontrollers. This enables the shortening of the development period.
