Keywords:Texas Instruments? Bluetooth? Android? iOS?

Texas Instruments has rolled out the Bluetooth Smart SensorTag app for Android following the launch of Android 4.3 "Jelly Bean" native support of Bluetooth Smart Ready. The new app removes the barriers to entry for app developers who want to take advantage of the millions of Android smartphones and tablets that will soon be Bluetooth Smart Ready.

With Android and iOS support, TI makes Bluetooth Smart "appcessory" development easier and faster with the CC2541-based SensorTag, which has six commonly used sensors on a single board for quick evaluation and demos.

The industry has embraced the $25 SensorTag kit since it requires no hardware or software expertise to get sample Bluetooth Smart applications running on a smartphone or tablet in minutes. Android and iOS developers and device manufacturers have already been working with the SensorTag to fuel the Bluetooth Smart appcessory market.

The SensorTag's six integrated sensors, including TI's TMP006 contactless IR temperature sensor, bring countless applications to life. The possibilities are endless including health and fitness, educational tools, toys and remote controls, and mobile phone accessories, all of which can be controlled by a smartphone, tablet or laptop. TI's royalty-free BLE-Stack software works with the SensorTag and offers an over-the-air download feature to easily maintain compatibility with end-equipment firmware updates. Additionally, the CC2541-based SensorTag kit complements TI's CC2564 Bluetooth dual-mode solution and WiLink combo connectivity solutions.
