The RN42XV module provides drop-in, certified Bluetooth connectivity for existing systems using 802.15.4 modules. Based on the popular 2 x 10 (2mm) socket footprint often found in embedded applications, the RN42XV offers a complete wireless solution for customers looking to migrate to a standard protocol without modifying existing hardware. The RN42XV modules are built upon Microchip's RN42 low power Bluetooth module. The module has an embedded Bluetooth stack and supports multiple interface protocols and profiles including the commonly used SPP and HID profiles.
The RN-XV-EK1 is an evaluation kit for the RN171XV series of modules. The RN171XV module is a certified Wi-Fi solution especially designed for customers who want to migrate their existing 802.15.4 architecture to a standard TCP/IP based platform without having to redesign their existing hardware.
