Syllabus


WEEK 1


Bluetooth



Bluetooth is the most popular WPAN (Wireless Personal Area Network) technology and is used in every smartphone that exists. Bluetooth applied on smartphones is also used with A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), aptX, EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), and Bluetooth High Speed (HS), which are covered in the lectures. The lectures explain the Bluetooth evolution which starts from Bluetooth 1.0 and evolves into Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, and the current state-of-the-art Bluetooth 4.0 (and 4.0 extensions), which can achieve up to 25 Mbps and includes BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology.
