Greetings, folks -
I am mostly an embedded device developer. You can see what I do at www.orelectronics.net I’m working on the next generation of my main product and I want to add Bluetooth (actually BLE) to it. The tasks would be data streaming (at modest equivalent baud rates - 38kbaud or less) and a terminal-like interface for configuration. I don’t know much about Bluetooth yet. On my semi-ancient Mac running High Sierra, I see Bluetooth appearing as a serial port. This will need to work cross-platform, ultimately including Android and iOS if possible.
Can anyone give me some hints about the high-level side of this so that I can do the embedded-side (not even sure which should be host and which should be client) somewhat intelligently? What software interface would be used and would it be the same for Windows, Mac, etc?
Probably have not asked the right questions, here, because I really don’t know what to ask. Will try to fill in, in response to postings, as I am able.
