Toshiba's Bluetooth® ICs provide proven high connectivity, stability and interoperability, allowing various application scenarios by using an HCI model with additional host CPU and ported Bluetooth stack/profile software, an integrated stack/profile concept with application on host MCUs, or a stand-alone configuration (no external host MCU) with bootable program code from external EEPROM.
TC35661SBG supports both the Bluetooth® classic standard up to BT3.0-EDR including a coexistence interface to WIFI solutions, and the new Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) standard within the new standard BT4.0. The feature list depends on the type of embedded features, e.g. HCI only or embedded stack and profiles.
The new TC35667FTG is a BLE only ("BLE Single") device for ultra lower power central and peripherals applications with and without additional host controllers. By using the embedded stack and BLE GATT profile, TC35667FTG can be used in combination with standard and proprietary BLE application profiles and software.
The integration of nearly all RF and peripherals components lowers the BoM significantly and eases PCB design.
Toshiba's hardware and software have undergone qualified Bluetooth® tests and have proven it´s interoperability to hundreds of mobile solutions in the marketplace.
The integration of stack and profiles offers an all-in-one Bluetooth® system solution and is currently available with profiles such as SPP, HID, or BLE GATT. Various application profiles (e.g. heart-rate, glucose-meter, battery sevice, find me etc.) according to BT LE standard are available, too.
Toshiba cooperates with partner companies to realize state-of-the-art ready-made module solutions for the industrial, medical or consumer market, which eases the adaption of this technology into systems and shortens Time-to-Market.

Bluetooth Module with TC35661 Bluetooth LSI available
The Toshiba Bluetooth® LSI TC35661SBG has been embedded - including it's SPP & BLE-GATT profile - into the Panasonic (PIDEU) module PAN1026. It is FCC/IC/CE certified. The embedded stack and profile were Bluetooth™ SIG approved through extensive BQB (Bluetooth™ Qualification Body) tests. The module is ideal for for wireless serial applications and all kind of BLE connectivity. System developers can make use of the Serial Port Profile and hook on their selected BLE profile onto BLE-GATT through the comfortable Toshiba API interface over UART. Read more... (pdf)
