Bluetooth Scatternet Formation Based on Minimum Spanning Tree Algorithm

Bluetooth standard allows a connection between interpiconet and scatternet using low cost, low power in a short range radio frequency. A Bluetooth ad hoc network has several role components of a master, slave and bridge nodes. Devices in a piconet use a specific frequency hopping pattern, which is algorithmically determined by certain fields in the Bluetooth address and clock of the master. Each piconet has a different physical channel (That is a different master device and an independent piconet clock and hopping sequence.) A Bluetooth device can never be a master of more than one piconet. One master device can obtain until seven slave devices.
