This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/CPLD architectures.
This E-blocks Bluetooth board contains a TRBLU23 module to add Bluetooth functionality to your system. The Class 1 Bluetooth module has a transmit power of 6dBm which provides open-space range in excess of 300 meters. Data transfer rate can be as high as 300kbps. The module is programmed using the serial I2C protocol, with an AT command superset, and can be operated by any microcontroller with a UART facility. The module is capable of supporting a range of Bluetooth protocols, including LAP, Data, and the headset profile. A compatible E-Blocks CODEC Board for establishing headset audio transfer is available.
E-Blocks Overview E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.
E-Blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.
Each E-Block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-Blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-Blocks that need it.
Processing E-Blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers control the whole E-Blocks system. Processing E-Blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.
Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-Blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
