In the past decades, progress in microelectronics and VLSI technology has fostered the widespread use of computing and communication applications in portable electronic devices. In this paper, we review the Bluetooth technology, a new universal radio interface enabling electronic devices to connect and communicate wirelessly via short-range connections. Motivations for the air interface design and radio requirement decisions are discussed. Frequency hopping, interference resistance, and the concepts of ad hoc connectivity and scatternets are explained in detail. Furthermore, Bluetooth characteristics enabling low-cost single-chip implementations and supporting low power consumption are discussed.
