The Bluetooth board adds fully certified Bluetooth 4.0 functionality to your system.
The Bluetooth board contains a Microchip RN4677 module. This module has a transmit power of +2dBm, which should give a 100 meters transmission range at a data transfer rate of 50Kbps.
The module is programmed using an asynchronous serial AT command style protocol which can be interfaced to any upstream controller with a UART facility.
The module allows for exploration of both Bluetooth classic (BR/EDR) and Low Energy (LE) protocols.
Flowcode macros to support the use of this board are available.
