Introduction

Welcome to IPWorks BLE, a Bluetooth Low Energy developer suite providing straightforward access to BLE operations. The BLEClient component provides a simple but flexible BLE GATT client implementation, making it easy to work with the services, characteristics, and descriptors exposed by BLE GATT servers on BLE devices.
