BANGALORE, India, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- MindTree Ltd. (http://www.mindtree.com/japan/aboutus/fact_sheet.html), a global IT Solutions Company and a leading provider of Bluetooth(R) intellectual property (IP) (http://www.mindtree.com/japan/randdservices/research/research.html) solutions, today announced that its Bluetooth Health Device Profile (HDP) and EtherMind 2.1+EDR stack have been successfully listed as a qualified design component by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) ( http://www.bluetooth.com/Bluetooth/SIG/).
MindTree's implementation of HDP supports all mandatory and optional features, including those of underlying layers such as Multi Channel Adaptation Protocol (MCAP) and Enhanced L2CAP (eL2CAP).
Today's medical devices use Bluetooth as a cable replacement, but use proprietary methods based on Serial Port Profile (SPP). This can result in lack of interoperability. MindTree's Bluetooth HDP surmounts this bottleneck by allowing for an interoperable way for the health and fitness devices to connect to cell phones, laptops and other communication devices.
Medical devices require efficient implementation of Bluetooth technology as they are typically battery-powered. MindTree's implementation of HDP is perfectly suited for such applications, thanks to its ultra compact footprint (http://www.mindtree.com/randdservices/research/research.html) and low MIPS, said MindTree CTO - RD Services, Dr. Raghunath Govindachari. A multitude of devices like pulse oximeters, blood glucose monitors and digital thermometers are expected to incorporate Bluetooth, which makes this segment very promising, he added.
Being the first independent Bluetooth stack provider to figure in the Qualified Design Listing (QDL) for HDP is a testimony to our involvement in the leading edge of Bluetooth technology, said MindTree CEO - RD Services, Vinod Deshmukh.
MindTree is a leading provider of Bluetooth IP ( http://www.mindtree.com/randdservices/research/bluetooth_overview.html) solutions with a comprehensive set of offerings including the BlueWiz baseband controller ( http://www.mindtree.com/randdservices/research/bluewiz_baseband_ip.html) and EtherMind stack and profile solutions ( http://www.mindtree.com/randdservices/research/ethermind_stack_profile.html).
