    Well, Boki, you could try using the standard definitions of 'gateway'
    and 'sink', but as I'm feeling generous, andf assuming you are
    referring to bluetooth as all your other requests have been...

    A sink of anything (at least in the information world) is a
    destination. So a telephone handset is an audio sink (the earpiece,
    anyway - the microphone would be a source).

    A Bluetooth headset is an audio sink. A hands free kit is an audio
    sink. [on the earpiece/speaker sides, at least].

    A gateway is a translation, mapping or [re]director (or some mixture of
    the three) point in a network.

    A cell phone with a bluetooth interface (capable of supporting a
    headset, for instance) is an audio gateway. It takes a GSM signal and
    formats it suitably for Bluetooth (translation) and provides the
    connection control to the headset (mapping and redirect).

    Again, all this information is easily available. Try using google (or
    your favourite search engine) before the next query :)


    Cheers

    Hi PeteS,

    It seems you are familiar to design Bluetooth products, right?

    We usually use CSR chip, but I have a lot of software questions, I
    would like to make friends to share knowledege.

    Best regards,
    Boki.

    Well, I have 3 products with Bluetooth using the CSR chipset in
    production (both bluecore 2 and bluecore 4), so I am familiar with the
    'quirks' of that particular family of chipsets, but CSR does follow the
    Bluetooth spec properly. It's freely available, and I suggest you get
    it.

    Cheers
