The EasyBluetooth Board is an add-on board that is designed to integrate the wireless capability to the device. Featuring onboard fully qualified RN41 Bluetooth 2.1/2.0/1.2/1.1 module, this accessory board operates on low power and high data rates. The RN41 module provides support for multiple internet protocols and enables simple integration. For communication with the host microcontroller, the board uses a UART interface. The EasyBluetooth board features six specialised connection pads on the side of the board. These connection pads allow for easy connection to the USB-UART board and control it through a PC as a standalone Bluetooth device, which also eliminates the need to use the microcontroller. The board includes a female IDC10 connector to plug it into a development system.
The EasyBluetooth board can use both a 3.3V or 5V power supply.
This high-performance RN41 delivers up to a 3-Mbps data rate for distances up to 100 meters. It makes a highly economic alternative to add the wireless ability to the device without spending substantial time and money in the development of Bluetooth-specific hardware and software.
