The BM71 is a small form factor, Bluetooth Low Energy module measuring only 9 x 11.5 x 2.1 mm. The BM71 module is designed for easy implementation into a broad range of applications. It delivers up to 2.5x throughput improvement and more secure connections vs. Bluetooth 4.1 based products. Developers can easily interface to the device via a standard UART interface, available on most Microcontrollers and Processors.
The BM71 has a completely integrated Bluetooth software stack, and offers a shielded regulatory certified version with built-in antenna. Developers are freed from the complexities of Bluetooth Software and RF development and can simply utilize the BM71 as a wireline replacement. Perfect for IoT (Internet of Things) applications, when interfaced to a BLE enabled smartphone or Bluetooth Internet Gateway, applications can be monitored, controlled and updated from anywhere in the world.
