Radicom’s new RB2001 family of Bluetooth modules, based on CSR’s latest Host Controller Interface (HCI) solution, provide a fully qualified Bluetooth system (V4.0 BLE, Classic BR/EDR and High Speed V3.0) for data and voice communications. The modules support serial UART, PCM, I²S and optional USB interfaces. The RB2001 is a SMT dual mode Bluetooth serial module, and the RB2001HM is a DIP (Through-Hole) serial module. Designed to work with Linux and Windows operating systems, the HCI command based devices can be configured using PSK settings via firmware provided inside the chipset. All upper layer code runs at the host side via standard HCI commands plus the extension BCCMD from CSR. With unique Wideband Speech, improved CODEC and a reduction of background noise and interface built in, the RB2001 offers an improvement to call quality with wireless accessories. All modules are FCC, IC and CE certified, and operate from -30°C to +85°C, suiting them for a variety of industrial OEM applications. Samples of RB2001 and RB2001HM, as well as the USB versions, RB2001U and RB2001UHM, are available now. Pricing starts at $18 each/250, with bulk discounts available for higher OEM volume requests.
