BT900 Series Bluetooth v4.0 Dual Mode Modules

BT900 Series Bluetooth v4.0 Dual Mode Modules

Laird’s BT900 modules are designed for optimum performance in powered devices and sensors. From the latest CSR 8811 silicon to the power efficient Cortex-M3 microcontroller, the BT900 provides maximum design flexibility. Easily balance throughput versus power-efficiency, aided by sleep-mode triggers to optimize the module’s duty cycle. Thanks to the combination of the Cortex-M3 and smartBASIC, the BT900 series provides true hostless operation for your product, providing maximum utility while saving you needless costs in your bill of materials.

Laird’s smartBASIC acts as the bridge between software and hardware, enabling an application written for one smartBASIC radio to work on any other. Our event-driven smartBASIC language, unique to the wireless industry, offers built-in functions that replace thousands of lines of C code with a few abstracted lines of smartBASIC. Leverage Laird’s years of Bluetooth expertise: write once and deploy anywhere with Laird’s line of smartBASIC-ready modules such as BL600 and BL620.

Laird’s BT900 module carries several modular FCC, IC, CE, MIC, and Bluetooth SIG approvals, meaning you do not 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. A complete, low cost Development Kit is available to further speed initial development and testing of Classic BT and BLE applications.
