Development tools available to buy now from our Webshop

Laird offer a range of development tools to provide a platform for rapid wireless connectivity prototyping, providing multiple options for the development of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) applications on Laird's BL600 single-mode modules.

The DVK-BL600 development kit features Laird's innovative event-driven programming language smartBASIC. The complete functionality of the development kit hardware requires Laird BL600 smartBASIC runtime engine FW version v1.1.50.0 or later.

The Bx600 breakout boards provide cost effective prototype flexibity, assist with developing low power designs (e.g. beacons) and enable an easy PC connection for vSP/serial testing:

  • BA600 - Breakout board with coin cell holder and UART-USB adapter
  • BB600 - Basic breakout board and pin-based power supply, access to I/O via through-holes
  • BC600 - Breakout board with coin cell holder

For sales and technical development support from our in-house engineering team, please contact the Alpha Micro team.

All development kits contain the following items:

Development Board The development board has the required BL600 module already soldered onto it and exposes all the various hardware interfaces available.
Power Options
  • USB cable - Type A to mini type B. The cable also provides serial communications via the FTDI USB - RS232 converter chip on the development board.
  • DC barrel plug with clips for connection to external power supply
Segger JTAG board - 'jlink lite' This third party JTAG interface provides the ability to upgrade the base firmware for the BL600 module.
Pin Headers x 4 Supplied to allow simple connection to SIO lines via the through hole plated areas JP2, JP3, JP4 and JP5. The headers are 2 x 5 way and are 2.54 mm pitch.
IDC Cable x 4 Supplied to allow simple connection to the 2 x 5 way pin headers into JP2, JP3, JP4 and JP5. The IDC cables are 2.54 mm pitch.
Web link card Provides links to additional information including the BL600 user manual, firmware, Laird BL600 app from the Apple app store, terminal utilities, schematics, quick start guides, and firmware release notes.
  • Radio hardware
  • UART, SPI, I2C, ADC, and GPIO interfaces for connecting peripherals and sensors
  • A complete BLE software stack
  • GATT-based BLE profiles that include Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, Health Thermometer, Proximity and Find Me, with future support for additional and custom profiles to suit your application's needs
