How to connect PAN1740 with an USB-BLE dongle?

Hello,
Sorry in advance if these are rather newbie questions, but I'm trying to use the PAN1740 for a wireless connection between a sensor and a PC.
I'm using the SPS Example and it works with two Pan1740 dongles or one PAN1740 and an android phone.

Now I want to use a normal USB-BLE dongle for the PC side and my first problem is, that I can't see the DS1480 with a normal dongle (BT 4.0 and it seems to be an CSR chip).
With the mobile phone I can see the DS1480 and I want to know if there some recommendations for the USB-ble dongle?

My second question is, if is possible to connect the DA1480 with the PC by using the systemdriver of the dongle or is it necessary to use a separate program for the pairing?

Thanks for all your help.

Hello Durban,

Hello Durban,
there is no application that I know about for BLE on a PC. Windows 8 and 10 are supposed to get the capability for software designers to use BLE in an application. As far as I know the Broadcom BT Stack provides the ability to implement BLE in Windows 7 as well together with USB-Dongle including a Broadcom chipset. HID for keyboards is the only profile that is implemented today. So basically BLE is made for mobiles if it comes to either proprietary profiles like DSPS or other specified profiles next to HID. That may change with Windows 10.
Hope that answers your question.

Hello Durban,

Hello Durban,

DSPS is a Dialog proprietary BLE profile, so both of Host and Peripheral need to implement this application and profile. In contrast, SPP is a SIG profile for BT3.0 or earlier version.
Regarding to the second question, I'd like to give you an example.
If BLE proximity app is available in Windows 8.1 and BLE dongle is used (Monitor), then you should be able to connect to DA14580 proximity tag (Reporter).
The communication depends on what the application and profile loaded in BLE devices.
