NAME

       hciattach - attach serial devices via UART HCI to BlueZ stack


SYNOPSIS

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


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.

       -ttimeout
              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 sup-
              ported types are

              type   description

              any    Unspecified  HCI_UART  interface,  no   vendor   specific
                     options

       <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.
