NAME

hciattach - attach serial devices via UART HCI to BlueZ stack  

SYNOPSIS

hciattach [-n] [-p] [-t timeout] tty type|id speed flow bdaddr  

DESCRIPTION

Hciattach is used to attach a serial UART to the Bluetooth stack as HCI transport interface.  

OPTIONS

-n
Don't detach from controlling terminal.
-p
Print the PID when detaching.
-t timeout
Specify an initialization timeout. (Default is 5 seconds.)
tty
This specifies the serial device to attach. A leading /dev can be omitted. Examples: /dev/ttyS1 ttyS2
type|id
The type or id of the Bluetooth device that is to be attached, i.e. vendor or other device specific identifier. Currently supported types are
type
description
any
Unspecified HCI_UART interface, no vendor specific options
ericsson
Ericsson based modules
digi
Digianswer based cards
xircom
Xircom PCMCIA cards: Credit Card Adapter and Real Port Adapter
csr
CSR Casira serial adapter or BrainBoxes serial dongle (BL642)
bboxes
BrainBoxes PCMCIA card (BL620)
swave

0x0160, 0x0002
BrainBoxes PCMCIA card (BL620)

speed
The speed specifies the UART speed to use. Baudrates higher than 115.200bps require vendor specific initializations that are not implemented for all types of devices. In general the following speeds are supported:

9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200, 230400, 460800, 921600

Supported vendor devices are automatically initialised to their respective best settings.

flow
If the keyword flow is appended to the list of options then hardware flow control is forced on the serial link ( CRTSCTS ). All above mentioned device types have flow set by default. To force no flow control use noflow instead.

bdaddr
The bdaddr specifies the Bluetooth Address to use. Some devices (like the STLC2500) do not store the Bluetooth address in hardware memory. Instead it must be uploaded during the initialization process. If this argument is specified, then the address will be used to initialize the device. Otherwise, a default address will be used.
