Bluetooth® AT Data Module
The BTM44x series Bluetooth® modules from Laird have been designed to meet the needs of developers who wish to add robust, short-range Bluetooth data connectivity to their products. They are based on the market-leading Cambridge Silicon Radio BC04 chipset, providing exceptionally low power consumption with outstanding range. These modules support the latest Bluetooth Version 2.1 Specification, providing the important advantage of Secure Simple Pairing, which improves security and enhances the ease of use for end customers. In addition to Serial Port Profile, the BTM44x series features a number of additional features and profiles not found on other Bluetooth modules.
With a small footprint of 12.5 x 18.0 mm and best-of-class, low-power operation, these modules are the ideal choice for applications where designers need both performance and minimum size. For maximum flexibility in systems integration, the modules are designed to support a separate power supply for I/O.
To aid product development and integration, Laird Technologies has integrated a complete Bluetooth protocol stack within the modules, including support for multi-point connections and numerous Bluetooth profiles, and are fully qualified as Bluetooth End Products, allowing designers to integrate them within their own products with no further Bluetooth Qualification.
Support for Serial Port Profile (SPP), Human Interface Device (HID) profile and Health Device Profile (HDP) are included in the module. The support of the Bluetooth SIG’s Health Device Profile makes this the ideal module for development of Continua compliant medical and wellness devices. By default the Health Device Profile supports the ISO/IEEE 11073-10415 device specialization for weigh scales, with the additional specializations of Thermometer and Glucose being available and more can be delivered upon request.
Communication is available to the module over a serial UART utilizing either a custom Multi-point Packet Protocol API or comprehensive AT commands. Combined with a low cost developer’s kit, this ensures that the choice of Laird Technologies Bluetooth modules guarantees the fastest route to market.
NOTE: The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has recently implemented changes to the End Product Listing (EPL) process. For more information about this update, please see the Bluetooth SIG Listing Process Fact Sheet and FAQs About the Updated Qualification and Listing Process.
The BTM44x modules are certified for compliance to regulatory and Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) standards and specifications. Laird Technologies customers can leverage the grants, approvals, and formal test reports associated with these certifications to achieve required device certifications; for details, consult the information below. For additional guidance, contact the wireless certifications group via email.
Note: The BTM44x is hardware identical to the BTM411 and its modulation characteristics related to FCC and ETSI are also the same. The only difference between these models is related to the Bluetooth protocols. FCC and ETSI regulations do not require new test reports for these modules therefore the BTM411 reports also show compliance for the BTM44x.
The BTM442 and BTM444 Bluetooth modules have been tested for compliance to the following CE and ETSI standards and specifications:
The BTM441 and BTM443 Bluetooth modules have been tested for compliance to the following CE and ETSI standards and specifications:
The following partial test report was generated for the BTM411 to cover the aspects of ETSI standards that the test reports above do not cover. This test report also applies to the BTM44x.
These formal test reports may be leveraged by mobile and portable device vendors as part of their self-declaration to obtain the CE mark required by members of the European Union. ETSI/CE rules differ from those of the FCC and IC in that there is no provision for a modular approval. All approvals and certifications must exist at the device level rather than the module (radio) level.
The BTM44x modules are fully compliant with Annex IV procedures in article 10.5 of R&TTE directive 99/5/EC.
The BTM44x modules are fully compliant with European Union Directive 2003/95/EC or Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) as per our Declaration of Compliance. Click to view the Statement of Compliance to EU WEEE Directive and RoHS Directive.
The BTM44x modules have been tested and certified for the following FCC grant:
The following test reports are available for these modules:
The following partial test report was generated for the BTM411 to cover the aspects of FCC standards that the test reports above do not cover. This test report also applies to the BTM44x.
The OEM integrator should have their end product tested by a qualified test house to verify their complete device meets these limits. Specific limitations are indicated on each grant.
The BTM44x modules hold full modular approvals. The BTM44x modules are fully approved for mobile and portable applications.
Note: Laird test data may be leveraged by the device vendor to minimize the cost and time associated with the certification process.
