Green Hills Software, a Santa Barbara, Calif.-based producer of secure operating systems, has partnered with Hamburg, Germany-based Stollmann E+V, a developer of communication protocol software, to supply Bluetooth and NFC solutions.
First out of the gate will be an NFC profile for the INTEGRITY real-time operating system that will provide support for NFC-enabled devices in contactless secure access and mobile payment applications.
In addition to the NFC profile, Green Hills and Stollmann are also cooperating on a Bluetooth health device for INTEGRITY that will enable developers of medical applications to design in line with the standards of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, ensuring interoperability with other medical devices worldwide.
Bluetooth profiles define how different applications use Bluetooth wireless technology to set up a connection and exchange data. The Bluetooth health device profile was developed to ensure that devices used in medical, health and fitness applications can transfer data between devices in a secure way.
