Bluetooth 4.0 is a low energy solution for short range data transfer. The low power consumption of these modules make them ideal for portable, battery powered devices. The new protocol also includes Mesh networking ability, allowing devices to connect to eachother, passing commands from a controller to all connected nodes, opening the door for home automation implementations such as mobile phone controlled lighting.
Bluetooth Low Energy modules support Apple iBeacon, most Bluetooth standard GATT profiles, and CSRmesh Networking. Additionally, we are creating an easy to use AT Command set for configuration and operational control of the low energy modules.
The KC?4114 low energy modules are pre-engineered, pre-qualified, and highly tuned surface mount PCB modules with built in antenna that provide fully embedded, ready to use Bluetooth low energy wireless technology.
The MOD-8811-CLE-HCI is an ultra low-cost Bluetooth 4.0 module offering dual mode Bluetooth/Bluetooth Low Energy HCI. This module will operate between 3V3 and 6V with minimal additional components and little knowledge of Bluetooth technology.
