Bluetooth software for QNX Beagle board

At Embedded World, Nuremberg, February 13 2007 Clarinox and QNX announced "QNX Software Systems connects with Clarinox Technologies to deliver Bluetooth solutions." In 2010 Clarinox announces Bluetooth stack software support for the QNX beagle board platform. Any Bluetooth dongle (versions 1.2, 2.0, 2.1 or 3.0) can be interfaced via the USB port of the Beagle board; the ClarinoxBlue Bluetooth upper level stack, profiles and application layer software running on the beagle board processor. This will make automotive applications such as those discussed in the QNX connected car concept much easier to implement. ClarinoxBlue Bluetooth software includes major profiles such as SPP, HandsFree, A2DP, AVRCP, OPP and sample applications. In addition, since this runs the Clarinox middleware and debugger framework, it means that engineers can quickly develop wireless applications, run other wireless protocols (eg GPRS/3G; RFID etc.) and can access the debugging information on all the threads of interest such as the Bluetooth activity, memory usage statistics etc.
