ClarinoxBlue support for Embedded Linux ELinOS

SYSGO and Clarinox integrate easy-to-use ClarinoxBlue Bluetooth stack with ELinOS platform


Klein-Winternheim, Melbourne 6. July 2021


SYSGO and Clarinox have joined forces and made the ClarinoxBlue Bluetooth Classic and Low Energy stacks available for SYSGO's embedded Linux distribution ELinOS. This allows embedded application developers to easily integrate Bluetooth communication into their embedded systems.

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

The supported Bluetooth Classic SPP and PAN profiles, Bluetooth Low Energy GATT profiles are suitable for carrying industrial protocols over wireless such as Modbus, Profinet RT and Profisafe. Other use cases are also found in the medical devices field as well as transport, railway and automotive industries. The combined offering meets a full 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 specifically designed for embedded applications. It was created to remove complexity from Bluetooth integration, thus reducing time to market as well as the technical risk. ClarinoxBlue supports simultaneous multiple profiles and multiple local Bluetooth devices, allowing an application to interact with several local Bluetooth devices simultaneously increasing flexibility for designers. A unique advantage of the Clarinox products is the availability of ClariFi debugging tool. Debugging of embedded systems can be very time-consuming and pose technical and timeline risk. The built-in protocol analyzer support and threading, memory usage, and memory leak analysis tools of ClariFi significantly eases debugging and helps developments complete faster.

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 ten years and more) for their products.

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

"We are happy to work with Clarinox to provide our customers an easy and flexible way to include Bluetooth into their projects", said Franz Walkembach, VP Marketing & Alliances at SYSGO. "As digitalization requires ever more connectivity options across all industries, among others, avionics, space, automotive, medical and more, we are pleased to offer an easier and more sustainable way of integrating Bluetooth technology."

"With the ELinOS integration, we are proud to be part of one of the most technically advanced embedded Linux distributions. This will allow ELinOS customers to integrate our leading ClarinoxBlue stack into their applications" said Trish Messiter, CEO at Clarinox. "Together, we will support ClarinoxBlue in ELinOS implementations, so that developers can guarantee the longevity of their applications."
