· Affix support Bluetooth specification 1.1 and 1.2.
· Modular implementation.
· Socket interface to L2CAP 1.1, L2CAP 1.2 and RFCOMM protocols.
· Bluetooth module interface independence.
· SMP safe.

· Ethereal plugin for helping debuging.
We successfully tested Affix for interoperability against a large amount of devices, e.g.:
· Nokia Bluetooth Phone 6210 with Bluetooth battery pack,
· Digianswer stack for Windows
· Compaq iPaq
· Bluetooth stack for Palm OS.
· Ericsson phones (T68).
· python gtk library
