Hello Community Members,

Welcome to the WICED Smart Reference Design Series.

iBeacon Reference Design

Design Files are located here: WICED Smart Documents & Downloads

The Broadcom iBeacon reference design is based on the WICED SMART BCM20737 Bluetooth Low Energy transceiver.

The iBeacon hardware provides the following features:

  • 4 Connection pads (UP_TX, UP_RX, VDDIO and GND) to enable programming of the device
  • SW1: An on/off slide switch
  • SW2: Push button to disable all radio function
  • SW3: A push button for EEPROM firmware recovery
    • The procedure to recover the EEPROM is as follows:
      • Power off the device
      • Hold down SW3
      • Power on the device
      • Release SW3
      • Proceed to program the new firmware into the device

Is there an iBeacon software that allows to configure the UUID/Major/Minor numbers in 20737?

Hello arunvm

The SDK 2.1 Release will address the configuration of these iBeacon Paramters.

The SDK 2.1 Release should happen sometime next week.

You may also need to enquire about an iBeacon license from Apple if you are to be iBeacon compatible.

Let me know if you have further questions

Thanks

JT
