Thunderbolt™ technology, created by Intel, is a high-speed transmission interface solution. It can transmit data and video between traditional computer peripherals. It can even pass data directly from the internal bus to external devices using PCIe. This means a variety of devices on the PCIe interface can also be used with Thunderbolt™ technology to improve computing interconnectivity and interoperability. This offers flexibility and simplicity for thin system designs.
Bluetooth wireless technology is a global short-range wireless standard that enables connectivity for a broad spectrum of electronic devices. The technology continues to evolve, building on its inherent strengths – small-form factor radio, low power, low cost, built-in security, robustness, ease-of-use, and ad hoc networking abilities.
