Overview: Bluetooth v4.0 Single Mode

NEW: Upgrade firmware from your host microcontroller!

The BL600 Series modules from Laird make it easy to add single-mode Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), or Bluetooth Smart, to small, portable, power-conscious devices, including those powered by AAA or coin cell batteries. The fully approved, programmable modules feature Laird's innovative, event-driven smartBASIC programming interface, which significantly simplifies BLE module integration. Available in BL600-SA, BL600-SC, BL600-ST variants. 

Now introducing the Bx600 breakout boards: The right hardware for your design requirement.

  • What makes the modules unique is smartBASIC, an event-driven programming language that enables standalone operation of the module whereby sensors can be attached via any of the interfaces without the need for an external processor. A simple smartBASIC application encapsulates the complete end-to-end process of reading, writing, and processing of sensor data and then uses BLE to transfer it to any Bluetooth Smart device – smartphone, tablet, gateway, or computer. Ultimately smartBASIC accelerates initial development, creation of prototypes, and mass production by providing you with your own BLE expert within the module.
  • In addition to carrying FCC modular, IC, MIC, and CE approvals, BL600 modules are fully qualified as a Bluetooth End Products, enabling designers to integrate the modules in devices without the need for further Bluetooth Qualification. A low-cost developer’s kit including simple software tools simplifies module integration and guarantees the fastest route to market.
