BLE-USB

The BLE-USB module is small-sized wireless Bluetooth low energy (LE) converter based on the Bluetooth 4.0 standard that allow USB interface to be converted to Bluetooth LE piconet network. The BLE-USB has two transmission modes – advertisement and connection mode. Users not only can send advertising packet in the advertisement mode but also can send connection packet in the connection mode. It supports different roles in each transmission mode. One is broadcaster and observer in advertisement mode, and the others is central and peripheral in connection mode. User can use AT command to setup the BLE-USB. The AT command not only can set role of Bluetooth LE, but also it can set some connection parameters (e.g. RF power level, broadcast parameters and slave amount).

The BLE-USB also provide slave security mechanism. The mechanism can obstruct illegal master, and the slave will ignore connection request from illegal master. In addition, ICPDAS provides software utility to easily configure and test the BLE-USB modules via USB.
