Implementing Bluetooth® LE Data Pumps

Implementing Bluetooth® LE Data PumpsThis document describes a specific group of Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) use cases, referred to as data pump applications, in which an external microcontroller pushes and pulls data through a BLE-capable device. The key requirement of such applications is to “pump data” through the Bluetooth LE wireless link, independent of the type of data, the profile used or the end application. We address various design choice aspects and inform readers how to make the right choice for their application.
