The increase use of ARM cores in industrial embedded systems make them more powerful. And as a method to implement a wireless communication we chose the relatively new Bluetooth Low Energy technology. In this Master Thesis we study the application and performance of Bluetooth technology on industrial power tools. We study and compare the performance of two Bluetooth modules for embedded solutions, one from STMicroelectronics and one from Microchip. And look if they are suitable as a wireless communication in industrial environment. We also study the energy performance and possibles ways to optimize it.
