The OLS425 is a complete Bluetooth low energy (Bluetooth Smart) module with UART logic level interface. The module embeds firmware with the u-blox Low Energy Serial Port Service for replacing serial cables or accessing UART devices using Bluetooth low energy technology. It also offers Apple iOS and Google Android connectivity.
The module has a small form factor and offers solder castellations for visual inspection. Options include an internal antenna version or a version with a connector for external antenna. There is also a wide selection of certified external antennas to choose from. The OLS425 Bluetooth low energy module is easily configured via AT commands.
Additionally, the module is Bluetooth qualified and provides modular radio type approvals for the US, Europe, Japan and Canada (FCC, R&TTE, MIC, IC). The OLS425 is also compliant with EMC, Safety and Medical standards. The operating temperature range is –40°C to +85°C.
