If you develop Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled applications for Sony Ericsson or Motorola UIQ mobiles, BH4-X from CYBERABI is an easy-to-use Windows 2000 device driver that can help with your debugging.
BH4-X allows industry standard USB adapters enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology to emulate a Bluetooth adapter that uses the standard Bluetooth UART HCI (also called the H4 HCI, because it is described in Section H4 of the Bluetooth standard). The UIQ 2.1 SDK for Symbian OS v7.0 can use an H4 HCI Bluetooth adapter to debug Bluetooth applications on a PC host.
BH4-X installs as a Windows COM port, just as a Bluetooth PCMCIA card or hardware reference platform would. In our side-by-side tests, BH4-X was recognized by the UIQ 2.1 SDK for Symbian OS v7.0 EPOC Emulator and performed correctly onthe EPOC Emulator Bluetooth control panel, device discovery, Jotter Bluetooth send/receive, and Contacts Bluetooth send/receive applications.
BH4-X uses only industry standard Bluetooth HCI commands and should work with any USB adapter enabled with industry standard Bluetooth technology, regardless of chipset. Nonetheless there are exceptions.
We've verified BH4-X compatibility with the Belkin F8T003, the Amazing Technology BlueGear, and the Hawking Technology H-BT10U. All of these USB adapters use chipsets from Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR).
Adapters based on the Broadcom BCM2033 and similar chipsets are not compatible with BH4-X. These adapters don't support industry standard Bluetooth HCI commands until a proprietary Broadcom firmware loader runs at each power-up. BH4-X does not include a firmware loader, and so cannot be used with these adapters.
Incompatible adapters include:
This list is not comprehensive. Check the specifications of your adapter to determine compatibility.
