New guide explains how to connect BLE and NFC devices

NFC Forum

The NFC Forum and the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) have updated their “Bluetooth secure simple pairing using NFC” developer guide. The new edition includes information on how NFC can be used to let consumers quickly and easily pair two devices that support Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), such as a smartphone and a smartwatch or other wearable device.

The document gives developers detailed instructions for implementing Bluetooth Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) using NFC, both for regular Bluetooth devices and for those equipped only with Bluetooth Smart, the public-facing brand for BLE.

The guideĀ is available for download from the NFC Forum’s website.
