Our daily lives are more and more affected by the presence of wireless technologies. One of the most popular forms of wireless communication is Bluetooth Low Energy. Despite being one of the most recent technologies available, Bluetooth Low Energy has already gained ground in the field of low power communication due to its extremely low power consumption and low complexity.
The main goal of this thesis is to design the hardware and software components of a mobile device controlled Bluetooth Low Energy module, capable of controlling a computer via its USB interface.
The first chapter of the thesis gives a brief introduction to Bluetooth Low Energy and USB technologies, followed by the detailed description of the module’s electronic circuit and the design of the printed circuit board.
The second part can further be divided into two sections – the implementation of the module’s low level software components and the development of an application demonstrating the functionality of the module.
