There is currently no standard interface protocol
between the Baseband IC and the RF unit (the radio layer unit), defined in
However some Bluetooth Working Group members
(Ericsson, Nokia Mitel, Intersil and Philips) have prepared the BlueRF or
just (blue rf) specification for standard interface between Baseband and
RF. Current version is V0.9 and it will support two physical connection
method for the interface. they are:
- 8 line interface for bidirectional port
- 14 line interface for unidirectional port.
You can reference Nokia's white paper for 8 line
interface info at the following url: http://www.forum.nokia.com/developers/bluetooth/download/srfbb1.pdf.
However you won't find the actual BlueRF specs on
the internet, as they are not public . You have to sign an NDA with one of
the respective companies to view them.You have to contact ARM to enter the
BlueRF group : they are coordinating the efforts on the BlueRF standard.
