DTL-X For Series 60 Bluetooth Developers -
New! Version 1.03 Features Easier Installation!
If you develop Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled applications for Nokia Series 60 mobiles, DTL-X from CYBERABI is an easy-to-use Windows 2000 device driver that can help with your debugging.
DTL-X allows industry standard USB adapters enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology to emulate the discontinued Nokia Connectivity Card DTL-4. Several Nokia developer kits, including the Symbian OS SDK for Series 60 Version 1.x, require this connectivity card or an equivalent (and also discontinued) Socket Communications card when debugging Bluetooth applications on a PC host.
- Works with industry standard USB adapters enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology.
- Adapter is readily available on the Internet and at retail shops.
- Adapter is about half the cost of a DTL-4.
- No need for a PCMCIA or Compact Flash interface on your development machine.
- Driver implements plug-and-play and hot-swap functionality.
DTL-X installs as a standard Windows COM port, just as a DTL-4 card would.
Due to fundamental technical differences between the DTL-4 compact flash card and industry standard USB devices, DTL-X emulates most, but not all, features of the DTL-4. In our side-by-side tests, DTL-X was recognized by the Series 60 SDK Emulator and performed equivalently to a Socket 8510-00159F card on Nokia's Bluetooth control panel, Notepad, Photo Album, BTP2P, BTAdvertiser, BTDiscovery, and BTOBEX applications.

DTL-X uses only industry standard Bluetooth HCI commands and should work with any USB adapter enabled with industry standard Bluetooth technology, regardless of chipset. Nonetheless there are exceptions.
We've verified DTL-X compatibility with the Belkin F8T003, the Amazing Technology BlueGear, and the Hawking Technology H-BT10U. All of these USB adapters use chipsets from Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR). Our customers have had success using DTL-X with CSR-based adapters from many vendors.
Adapters based on the Broadcom BCM2033 and similar chipsets are not compatible with DTL-X. These adapters don't support industry standard Bluetooth HCI commands until a proprietary Broadcom firmware loader runs at each power-up. DTL-X does not include a firmware loader, and so cannot be used with these adapters.
Incompatible adapters include:
- Allnet ALL1570
- Belkin F8T001
- D-Link DWB-120M
- D-Link DBT-120 (Rev A1/A2)
- IOGEAR GBU301 / GBU302
- Keyspan BT-2A
- PheeNet BT-222
- Tecom BT-3030
- W-Link WBT-3020
- WNi BlueLink
This list is not comprehensive. Check the specifications of your adapter to determine compatibility.
