To build any of the Bluetooth samples, follow the same steps as building any other Zephyr application. Refer to the Getting Started Guide for more information.

Many Bluetooth samples can be run on QEMU with support for external Bluetooth Controllers. Refer to the Testing with QEMU section for further details.

Several of the bluetooth samples will build a Zephyr-based Controller that can then be used with any external Host (including Zephyr running natively or with QEMU), those are named accordingly with an “HCI” prefix in the documentation and are prefixed with hci_ in their folder names.
