SYSGO and Clarinox collaborated on the ClarinoxBlue Bluetooth Classic and Low Energy stack available for SYSGO's embedded Linux distribution ELinOS, designed to help embedded application developers integrate Bluetooth communication into their embedded systems.

There are use cases for industrial applications such as trouble-free ethernet communication between control devices and moving machines, and hard to wire sensors with distances up to 100 meters and more. One application in this area is the real-time monitoring of harmful vibration for failure prevention.

The supported Bluetooth Classic SPP and PAN profiles, and Bluetooth Low Energy GATT profiles are suitable for carrying industrial protocols over wireless such as Modbus, Profinet RT, and Profisafe. Other uses cases are also found in the medical devices field as well as transport, railway, and automotive industries. The combined offering meets a spectrum of connectivity needs from low-energy consuming data transfer (e.g., truck to trailer Bluetooth communication between sensors) to high-end applications including audio connectivity such as in In-Vehicle-Infotainment systems (IVI).

ClarinoxBlue is a Bluetooth stack designed for embedded applications. It was created to remove complexity from Bluetooth integration, thus reducing time to market as well as the technical risk. According to the companies, it also increases flexibility and eases debugging. ClarinoxBlue supports simultaneous profiles and local Bluetooth devices, allowing an application to interact with several local Bluetooth devices. An advantage of the Clarinox products is the availability of ClariFi debugging tool. The built-in protocol analyzer support and threading, memory usage, and memory leak analysis tools of ClariFi is designed to ease debugging.

ELinOS is SYSGO's industrial-grade Linux distribution for embedded systems which includes real-time extensions and long-term support. It can be used stand-alone or in a partition of SYSGO's hypervisor-based real-time operating system PikeOS. Both, SYSGO and Clarinox, offer long-term support (10 years and more) for their products.

Per the companies, Clarinox offers support for Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, and WiFi applications. The SYSGO package for ClarinoxBlue integration includes all header files and libraries as well as an example application for CODEO, SYSGO's comprehensive development platform.
