The embedded Bluetooth software stack BCHS (BlueCore Host Software) from CSR is now available in a version optimised for the Symbian operating system. The company can now provide a range of up to 17 profiles for this operating system including DUN (Dial Up Networking) Audio Gateway, Handsfree, BIP (Basic Image Printing), Basic printing profile, AVP (Audio Visual Profile), CTP (Cordless Telephony Profile), and PAN (Personal Area Network) profile. CSR's BCHS for Symbian provides ODMs with a tailored Bluetooth host stack for smartphone applications.
According to the company, the BCHS for Symbian reduces the risk and cost of adding Bluetooth to a Symbian smartphone by creating a single source solution with proven and integrated software and hardware. The product is developed to work with both UIQ and Nokia Series 60 SDK's on version 7 of the Symbian OS today and migrating to Version 8 OS for 2005.
