LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- April 22, 2013

Stonestreet One, a leading provider of Bluetooth® software solutions since
2000, announced today that the company is making available its Bluetopia®
Bluetooth protocol stack via the ARM / Avnet Embedded Software Store, an
embedded marketplace bringing developers and software vendors together to
provide solutions for customers in the embedded software space.

With 24/7 worldwide availability, the Embedded Software Store provides an easy
method for developers to obtain the highly reliable and widely adopted Classic
and Low EnergyBluetoothsoftware from Stonestreet One. Versions of Bluetopia
will be available for several popular ARM® Cortex™-M3/M4 MCUs but will only
work with Texas Instruments Incorporated (NASDAQ: TXN) Bluetooth® v4.0
technology-based CC2560 and CC2564 wireless devices to enable fitness, sensor,
remote control and data transfer in industrial and consumer applications. The
downloaded software package will include getting started guides, documentation
and support and is fully qualified to enable quick time to market.

“It has been our desire to make our Bluetopia software more readily available
through traditional distributor channels,” said Tim Reilly, president of
Stonestreet One. “Having our software available on the Embedded Software Store
for several ARM based products achieves that goal and also gives companies
choices for processors that can be used with our software and TI Bluetooth.”

“The addition of Stonestreet One’s stack on the Embedded Software Store gives
developers online access to add Bluetooth connectivity to a wide variety of
ARM-based MCUs such as the recently announced Tiva™ C series from TI,” said
Dana Myers, channel marketing manager, Wireless Connectivity Solutions, TI.
“The combination of Stonestreet One’s Bluetooth stack and TI’s CC2560 and
CC2564 high performance and cost effective devices enable Bluetooth or
dual-mode Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy connectivity across many platforms to
fuel innovation in new sports and fitness, smart watch, audio and phone
accessory applications.”

TI’s CC2560 device offers Bluetooth v4.0 “classic” support for audio and data
applications requiring high throughput. The CC2564 device supports two
options: dual-mode Bluetooth/Bluetooth low energy or dual-mode Bluetooth/ANT+.
Applications that benefit from the dual-mode solution include those that
require wireless communication to Bluetooth “classic” products and Bluetooth
low energy or ANT+ devices such as sports and fitness aggregator gadgets or
smart watches. The dual-mode Bluetooth v4.0 offering can also be used as a
sensor solution that delivers longer range to communicate with mobile devices
that may or may not have Bluetooth low energy technology.

Stonestreet One is attending Design West, April 22-25, 2013 in San Jose, CA.
Look for Stonestreet One representatives at the McEnery Convention Center,
Booth #1227 to learn more about the Embedded Software Store offerings.
