I am starting a project to record certain medical measurements (pulse, temperature, ecg) with various analog front ends and then use the Tiva C Series to send that data over Bluetooth to a mobile device.
I am looking for advice on choosing a Bluetooth controller. I had originally purchased the EDB-BLE by Emmoco but soon realized LE is not efficient for continuous streams of data (ecg) and the 8051 controller requires specific IAR tools.
The requirements I would like of this recommended Bluetooth controller would be:
1) Evaluation board available with PCB antenna
2) Availability of Bluetooth stack
3) Ability to program with gcc (not proprietary tools)
Please let me know if I am overlooking anything too.
