BLE 2 Click Board
The BLE 2 Click Board™ is an excellent choice if you want simple, temporary connectivity with your smart devices over Bluetooth 4.1.
The BLE 2 Click Board™ features the RN4020 module from Microchip, that integrates RF, a baseband controller, and a command API processor, making it a complete Bluetooth Low Energy solution. The Click Board™ communicates with the target board MCU through MikroBUSRX, TX and AN (CMD), PWM (con.), and RST (wake) lines. The board is designed to use 3.3V power supply only.
- Based on the RN4020
- Onboard embedded Bluetooth low energy stack
- Onboard PCB antenna
- Act both as a client or a server
- Supports MLDP
- Simple ASCII command interface over UART
- Low power modes
- 3.3V power supply
- RoHS Compliant
- Supported by all MikroElektronika compilers
IC/Module: RN4020 Bluetooth 4.1 module
RN4020 is a high performance, fully qualified Bluetooth Version 4.1 module intended to easily add low power wireless capability to the device. The compact size favours easy integration in size-constrained applications. This surface mount module has complete Bluetooth stack on-board and can be remote controlled by another module over a secure connection.
The two RN4020 Bluetooth modules, when used in a pair, make a powerful combination due to MLDP support. MLDP enables connecting a pair of BLE2 Clicks easy and quick.
Embedded PCB antenna
The module with an on-board PCB antenna gives you a range of about 30 meters, when tested in closed space. However, it is possible to get a better range depending on the conditions.
BLE2 Click communicates with the target board MCU through mikroBUS RX, TX and AN (CMD), PWM (CON), and RST (WAKE) lines.
