The System-on-Chip (SoC) design of digital circuits makes the technology to be reusable. The current paper describes an aspect of design and implementation of IEEE 802.15.1 (Bluetooth) protocol on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based SoC. The Bluetooth is a wireless technology designed as a short-range connectivity solution for personal, portable and handheld electronic devices.
This design aims on Bluetooth technology with serial
communication (RS-232) profile at the application layer.
The IP core consists of Bluetooth Medium Access Control
(MAC) and Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter
(UART). Each module of the design is described and
developed with hardware description language-Very High
Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language
(VHDL). The final version of SoC is implemented and
tested with ALTERA STRATIX II EP2S15672C3 FPGA.
