Device Overview

Summary

The RN4870 Bluetooth Low Energy 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 RN4870 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 RN4870 as a wireline replacement.  Perfect for IoT (Internet of Things) applications, when interfaced to a Bluetooth Low Energy enabled smartphone or Bluetooth Internet Gateway, applications can be monitored, controlled and updated from anywhere in the world.

Additional Features
  • Bluetoooth 5 Certified
  • ASCII interface commands for communication with the host microcontroller
  • Scripting features to allow for operation without a host microcontroller.
  • Increased privacy features
  • White list for determining connections
  • MLDP compatibility with RN4020
  • Remote configuration capability
  • 1.9V~3.6V operating range
  • Antenna: Ceramic chip Antenna or external antenna connection
