Generating the PHD codes

These codes are used to express the Continua Personal Area Network (PHD) interfaces. The codes express both the transport (Bluetooth, USB, etc.) and specialization (Blood pressure, thermometer, glucose, etc.).

The codes are generated by the following relation:

PHD transport code = transport code X 8192 + (specialization term code - 4096)

The transport code (Tcode) has the following values:

Transport Code Transport
0 Continua version 1.0
1 USB
2 Bluetooth HDP
3 ZigBee
4 Bluetooth Low Energy
5 NFC

The special Tcode of 0 is for Continua version 1.0 when there was no transport component in the reported certified PHD interface codes.
