Laird BL600 Series Bluetooth Modules

Product Description

Laird Technologies BL600 Series modules, based on Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF51822 chipset, incorporate all the hardware and firmware needed to support development of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) applications. Packed into a 19 mm x 12.5 mm footprint the BL600 series provides exceptionally low power consumption with outstanding wireless range.

Bluetooth can be found in a growing number of wireless devices and with Bluetooth 4.0 introducing BLE designers will be able to take advantage of the long-term operation of Bluetooth devices in low-volume data transmission; enabling smaller form factors, better power optimization, and power cells that last for years on a single charge.

With BL600 Series modules adding a single-mode Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), or Bluetooth Smart, to small, portable, power-conscious devices (including AAA or coin cell powered devices) has never been easier. Driven by Laird’s unique event-driven smartBASIC programming language gives designers their own BLE expert. With integration significantly simplified, initial development, prototyping, and mass production are that much faster.
In addition the BL600 Series carry FCC modular, IC, CE and MIC approvals, making BL600 modules fully qualified as a Bluetooth End Products, meaning designers can integrate the modules in devices without the need for further Bluetooth Qualification.

Everything you Need

All the hardware and firmware you need in a 19x12.5 mm footprint. Including:

  • Radio hardware
  • UART, SPI, I2C, ADC, and GPIO interfaces for connecting peripherals and sensors
  • A complete BLE software stack
  • GATT-based BLE profiles (inc. Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, Health Thermometer, Proximity and Find Me).

Integration Made Easy

BL600 modules use Laird's innovative smartBASIC event-driven programming language. Encapsulates the complete end-to-end process of reading, writing, and processing of sensor data within the module and use BLE to transfer it to any Bluetooth v4.0 device. Development made fast and significantly simpler.

Bluetooth Approved

BL600 Series modules are FCC modular, IC, CE and MIC approvaled, making them fully qualified as a Bluetooth End Products.
