The Leader in Embedded Bluetooth
                     

Introducing Dotstack Introducing The world's most versatile Bluetooth stack SEARAN LLC is the fastest growing provider of Bluetooth wireless connectivity with tens of
millions of licenses sold for innovative solutions in consumer, medical and industrial applications.
Our ultra small Bluetooth stack was designed for low cost and low power embedded devices. Bluetooth SIG compliant and well tested, dotstack™ has the smallest footprint, is easy to port
and already runs on most popular platforms and OS.
Enovations Controls “Enovation Controls engaged SEARAN during a custom display infotainment project that involved routing and playing of audio and voice, messaging and data. After several months of work with other third parties who claimed to have the expertise and insight to help us implement the complicated Bluetooth functionalities, spending thousands of dollars and waiting without great communication, they all failed. Enovation came to SEARAN needing help and needing them to do the work in record time to put the project back on track for timing. SEARAN was not only able to achieve what the other companies could not achieve, they did it at a cost that was less than the others had quoted, and in record time. The interactions between Enovation and SEARAN were direct and frequent with great response time and urgency. Enovation has enjoyed the relationship with SEARAN and will definitely be looking forward to working with them again.” Vice President, Vehicle Technologies // Murphy by Enovation Controls Jinger J. McPeak Laird “For companies looking to leverage Laird HCI modules into low cost, low power embedded devices based on Cortex M series microcontrollers, then SEARAN and the dotstack is an ideal Bluetooth stack vendor. The speed and flexibility of SEARAN’s approach for our BTv5.0 HCI module customers utilising the dotstack has been truly excellent.” Product Director // Laird, Embedded Wireless Solutions Jonathan Kaye Panasonic “SEARAN has been successfully delivering Bluetooth solutions to Panasonic’s customers that require Bluetooth data, voice and audio applications for over five years. SEARAN’s Bluetooth stack “dotstack” is an excellent choice for embedded systems with limited memory resources. The SEARAN team has deep expertise integrating Panasonic’s Bluetooth modules based on Texas Instruments CC256x controllers -- PAN1315/1325/1316/1326. I’ve found SEARAN’s support group to be very responsive to our customers, providing them with solid engineering guidance and recommend SEARAN to customers considering HCI Bluetooth implementations.” Wireless Connectivity Product Manager, Industrial Components Division

Toshiba America “The Toshiba team has worked with SEARAN on multiple projects related to the Toshiba Bluetooth chipset, TC35661 and TC35667. The SEARAN team has provided fast turnaround on all of our technical matters and their dotstack offering has helped us harness the software application possibilities that exist around our Bluetooth chipsets.” Senior Manager, Business Development for Mixed-Signal Business Unit

Marvell “This is the second project in my group where SEARAN’s Bluetooth stack dotstack is integrated on Marvell platforms based on Marvell Bluetooth products. Both times I was very impressed by SEARAN’s professional expertise, timely and uninterrupted support availability, and capability in delivering in very few days dotstack ports for Marvell platforms. SEARAN’s product and SEARAN’s support team have been key contributors in the successful execution of these projects." R&D Manager, IoT BU // Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Massimo Ravasi NXP “NXP appreciated support for an innovation project with lots of uncertainties. Flexibilty from SEARAN and close cooperation did deliver required results.” Department Manager, NXP Semiconductors
