Bluegiga Technologies, available from Glyn High-Tech Distribution announces the availability of its new Bluetooth Smart Ready HCI module, BT111.
A low cost and ultra small Bluetooth Smart Ready HCI module, BT111 is designed for applications where both Bluetooth classic and Bluetooth low energy connectivity are needed. BT111 integrates a Bluetooth 4.0 dual mode radio, HCI software stack, USB interface and an antenna.
Compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems and Microsoft and BlueZ Bluetooth stacks, BT111 offers OEMs a risk-free way to integrate Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity into their applications, ensuring faster time-to-market with low development and certification costs.
Mikko Savolainen, VP of Product Management at Bluegiga explains that the BT111 Bluetooth Smart Ready HCI module is an expansion to their existing Bluetooth 4.0 product family and provides an easy-to-use Bluetooth 4.0 dual mode solution for devices that have Linux or Windows OS.
BT111 Bluetooth Smart Ready HCI module has +8 dBm transmit power, approximately -90dBm received sensitivity, and dimensions of 13.05 x 9.3 x 2.3mm with an integrated chip antenna.
According to Riku Mettälä, VP of Engineering, Bluegiga used its expertise in making wireless modules while developing the BT111 with the key objective being to design an ultra-small module size that did not sacrifice the radio performance. The BT111 is 20% smaller than similar, existing solutions and still provides better RF performance.
Offering proven radio operation and minimal qualification costs, the new Bluegiga BT111 module will also be Bluetooth, CE, FCC, IC, South Korea and Japan qualified.
