Laird Announces the Addition of BL620 Bluetooth Low Energy Module to the BL600 Series Product Line

Laird announced the addition of the BL620 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module to the BL600 Series product line. With the ability to program in both Peripheral and Central mode, the BL600 product line now equips manufacturers with both ends of the BLE link, reducing integration risks and time to market while simplifying BLE applications. Utilizing the same module hardware as the BL600, the BL620 has a new firmware load that supports Central mode connectivity to a multitude of embedded devices. Use of the BL600 Series modules at both ends of the Bluetooth connection enables better wireless communication, eases integration, and can decrease costs. The BL620 line of modules reduces the engineering burden and design risk of integrating Bluetooth and BLE to a device. Fully approved and programmable, the BL620 s compact footprint, low-power, and unique smartBASIC programming language provide a secure stable, and innovative Bluetooth environment for embedded designs. The programming language has been proven to speed time to market and significantly simplifies BLE integration for embedded devices which saves time, money and resources. smartBASIC enables standalone operation of the module whereby sensors can be attached via any of the interfaces without the need for an external processor and acts as a BLE expert within the module, significantly cutting time spent on initial development, creation of prototypes, and mass production. In addition to the new BL620 firmware for the BL600 hardware series, Laird has launched a new packaged USB dongle (part # BL620- US) that leverages central mode BLE connectivity to any laptop or PC that supports a USB port. This operating system agnostic dongle makes it possible to add BLE Central Mode capabilities to PCs that do not natively support BLE connectivity through a virtual COM port implementation and smartBASIC. In addition, the dongle provides the ability to load smartBASIC applications over the air (OTA) to a BL600 peripheral mode module.
