Silicon Labs: Developing Beacons with Bluetooth Low Energy Technology

April 11, 2016 // By Silicon Laboratories

Beacons enable "proximity-aware applications" for customers, businesses, and industrial environments. Putting beacons on a product, pushing their data into the cloud, and then using it to create value all represent new and challenging development frontiers for many of us. This whitepaper provides: beacon application examples; a history of Bluetooth Low Energy and beacons; example code and tools to develop beacons; end-to-end beacon solutions.
