Silabs (Bluegiga) releases Bluetooth Smart Ready Combo Module - BT121

Silabs BT121The BT121 module integrates both Bluetooth BR/EDR and Bluetooth Smart wireless technologies in a single 11x14mm module with an integrated antenna and fully certified dual mode protocol stack, minimizing design time, cost and complexity. This BT4.1 compliant module is ideal for applications that require connectivity to both legacy devices that only support Bluetooth BR/EDR and newer devices that support Bluetooth Smart including connected home, health and fitness, wearables and point-of-sale terminals. 

It can connect to legacy devices that only support Bluetooth SPP or Apple iAP2 profiles as well to devices that support Bluetooth Smart. BT121 integrates a high performance Bluetooth radio, a low-power ARM Cortex micro-controller and a Bluegiga Bluetooth Smart Ready stack software making it extremely easy-to-use as no RF or Bluetooth software development is needed. BT121 can be used as a modem together with a separate host MCU, but applications can also be embedded into the built-in ARM Cortex MCU with the Bluegiga BGScriptTM scripting language.

The BT121 has uncompromising performance with RF output up to +12 dBm, providing reliable and long range Bluetooth connections, and is certified with full modular approval for FCC, IC, CE, South Korea and Japan.

A fully featured development kit (DKBT) can be purchased from our Glyn Store to get you started.
