    • Various sample applications that serve as examples of how to utilize the BT/BLE APIs
    • More complex code examples  that utilize various APIs and middleware to create a more complete solution


    Notes for Installing Bluetooth SDK 2.8 with ModusToolbox 2.2:

    • Note:  If a previous version of BT SDK2.x was installed and needs to be preserved, you will need to create a new workspace project in order to pull in Bluetooth SDK 2.8 and avoid overwriting previous versions.
    • Within the IDE, click the “New Application” link in the Quick Panel
      • Alternatively, you can select File -> New -> ModusToolbox IDE Application
    • This will launch the Project Creator.  In Project Creator, click on "WICED Bluetooth BSPs"
    • Next, select the evaluation board you are using with Bluetooth SDK
    • Now you will select a template application.
    • Click Create.
    • Click Close.
