The book is split into four parts. The first part provides an overview of the technology, the basic concepts that guided the development of Bluetooth low energy, the architecture of the system from the radio through the various protocol layers up to the application layers, and finally the new usage models that this new technology enables. The second part goes into detail on how the radio chip, called a controller, works. This is the silicon chip that a product designer needs to incorporate into their end products. This part covers the radio, direct test mode, and the link layer. It also shows how to interact with the controller from the upper layer stack, called a host. The third part goes into detail of how the host, the software stack, works. It covers the concepts and details behind the main protocol used to expose attributes of a device. It also covers the security models and how to make connections and bond, or associate, two devices with each other. The final part describes how an application can use Bluetooth low energy to interact with peripherals, explains how a peripheral can be designed to make the best use of the low energy technology, and explains how to test and qualify a design so that it can be sold or distributed.
