This is a simple DIP breakout for the Roving Networks RN-41 Bluetooth module. All pertinent pins are broken out and labeled. Header pins are not installed.
The RN-41 module from Roving Networks (now owned by Microchip) is powerful, small, and very easy to use. This Bluetooth module is designed to replace serial cables. The Bluetooth stack is completely encapsulated. The end user just sees serial characters being transmitted back and forth. Press the 'A' character from a terminal program on your computer and an 'A' will be pushed out the TX pin of the Bluetooth module.
Note: Do not attach this device directly to a serial port. You will need an RS232-TTL converter or a USB-TTL converter if you want to attach this device to a computer.
