The EasyBluetooth is an add-on board that is designed to integrate wireless capability to the device. Featuring onboard fully qualified RN41 Bluetooth 2.1/2.0/1.2/1.1 module, this accessory board operates on low power and high data rates. The RN41 module provides support for multiple internet protocols and enables simple integration. For communication with the host microcontroller, the board uses UART interface. The EasyBluetooth board features six specialized connection pads on the side of the board. These connection pads allow for easy connection to the USB-UART board and control it through a PC as a standalone Bluetooth device, which also eliminates the need to use the microcontroller. The board includes a female IDC10 connector to plug it into a development system.
The EasyBluetooth board can use both 3.3V and 5V power supply.
This high performance RN41 delivers up to a 3-Mbps data rate for distances up to 100 meters. It makes a highly economic alternative to add wireless ability to the device without spending substantial time and money in the development of Bluetooth-specific hardware and software.
The EasyBuzz Board is an accessory board featuring a piezo buzzer capable of emitting audio signals. It is required to generate a voltage signal of specified frequency in order to operate the piezo buzzer normally. The onboard piezo speaker is capable of playing sound frequencies in the range between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. However, the resonant frequency of piezo speaker is 3.8 kHz and the best sound quality is achieved using frequencies between 2 kHz and 4 kHz. A DIP switch further aids in configuring board connections. The buzzer driver can be provided with a digital signal or a pulse-width modulated signal, where sound pitch is regulated by the PWM frequency, and sound volume can be adjusted by changing the PWM duty cycle. It has a female IDC10 connector. The EasyBuzz Board supports both 3.3V and 5V systems.
With such features, the Piezo Speaker add-on board is an ideal choice for adding audio signalization to any prototype device.

EasyLED Board with Green LEDs
Now easily add LED signals to the design using the EasyLED Board. The EasyLED Board is a cost-effective yet effective solution for visual indication of output signals. Featuring 8 surface mounted LEDs, the EasyLED Board is used to connect a development system port to LEDs. It features two IDC10 header connectors; one female header (CN2) and one male header (CN1). The user can connect a prototype device using its female IDC10 connector, or can be wired to your system using the make 2x5 pin header. These header connectors make EasyLED Board highly compatible with all development boards. The board supports 3.3V or 5V power supply voltage. This board is supplied with Green LEDs. Alternative boards are available fitted with red and yellow LEDs.
The EasyLED Board is used to indicate the logic level on the development system ports. When a pin is driven high (logic 1), the appropriate LED connected to that pin gets illuminated. Similarly, if a pin is driven low (logic 0), the appropriate LED remains off.
The user can use the EasyLED board with EasyPULL board in order to provide the device pin to VCC or GND via resistors and have visual indication of output signals via LED.
