Chris is on vacation, so David (Ledger) is filling in. Hear all about the goings-on at the EEVblog world headquarters and also throughout the larger electronics industry. Show notes will return next week. See the /r/TheAmpHour subreddit for links to some of the things they discussed.
Ah, Apple and their dongles.
That was fun. David sure had done a lot for someone his age.
Speaking of greybeards, next time you should do an interview with Big Clive who has quite a beard, lots experience in the world of electronics and some good stories to tell.
YES! Big Clive! Please, please, please, please!!!
Enjoyed the podcast – BTW with the latest Xamarin bits in Visual Studio 2017, you can use the new Xamarin LivePlayer to develop/deploy/test your app without a Mac. Unfortunately you’d still need one before submitting to the store.

Not mentioned, but any update to Dave2’s one-button altium add-on that generates a smart BOM?
I’d like to do an app that records audio via bluetooth, but it didn’t seem Android’s BlueDroid/BlueZ stack supports A2DP Sink. Perhaps if an audio transmitter supports the Hands-Free or Headset bluetooth profile this could work (ex. SOYO-BT24G03 /SOYO-BT24G03B/ Basically any CSR chipset)…
(Recording via USB OTG would be fine, but I think that would require a custom usb audio driver)
From what I’ve read, Bluetooth 4.0 is usually referred to as BLE because the main change to the specification was the addition of the Low Energy Spec, but 4.0 does include the “Classic” BR/EDR radios, including High Speed (which I don’t believe anyone uses because it uses WI-Fi as transport).
The Single Mode term is usually used with BLE only. I have not seen it used with Bluetooth Classic (3.0, 2.1, etc). So Single mode can be Bluetooth Classic, but no one refers to it as such. I think the reason is that Bluetooth by itself is assumed to be the Classic spec, but whether BLE is dual mode or not really depends. I guess this is because LE came later.
I’d love to see a development kit for NON-BLE 250kbps speeds… but BT 2.1 EDR module designed for a high thruput (FTP profile) seem to be non-existent!
Dave J. I think you are a bit behind with driver less car technology. Thinking about it you are way behind. I would put my money on Dave 2. Don’t forget that the cars do not only learn as they drive but they are networked and share the learning across the network. Really leverages performance.
