BT900-US - Bluetooth Dual Mode Classic/BLE USB dongle featuring Peripheral and Central Mode connectivity

Laird's BT900-US USB dongle expands upon the BT900 series of modules for embedded devices, to leverage Classic BT and Bluetooth Low Energy support to PC's, laptops and mobile computers. No External Bluetooth Stack Or Drivers Required!

The Laird BT900-US USB dongle has been developed to take advantage of the BT900-SA module, providing a simple and easy way to add Classic Bluetooth, BLE Central, and BLE Peripheral mode to virtually ANY operating system with a USB interface. Leverage the BT900-US to enable any Bluetooth SPP device or BLE sensor to communicate to any PC, laptop, or mobile computer without any complicated installation or software support requirements.

The BT900-US carries several modular FCC, IC, CE, and Bluetooth SIG approvals, meaning you don't need costly and time-intensive testing to bring certified Bluetooth to market. Certifications from worldwide regulatory bodies take time, effort, financial cost, and ultimately slow development. Laird's approvals extend to your design with no additional testing, making them a fast and efficient route to production.

Features:

  • Bluetooth v4.0 dual mode (BT and BLE)
  • Virtual COM port implementation - huge array of supported operating systems
  • smartBASIC powers rapid design and deployment
  • Supports SPP and any BLE peripheral or central roles
  • Supports simultaneous BT and BLE connections
  • Standalone operation - no need for external Bluetooth stack or power supply
