Bx600 Breakout Boards and BL600 DVK
BLE Development Options for Any Hardware Budget
BLUETOOTH DESIGN THAT SCALES TO YOU.
Designing Laird’s BL600 into your system has never been easier. Laird now introduces
the Bx600 breakout board series, joining alongside the DVK-BL600 development kit.
All allow you to connect to and program the BL600 from Windows, OSX, or Linux via
UwTerminalX software. The Bx600 breakout boards provide a streamlined approach
for simplified BL600 prototyping in as little as a tenth of the cost. They come in three
packages: basic breakout board, board with coin cell attachment, and board with coin
cell attachment and USB-to-UART adapter. The DVK-BL600 contains a wider variety of hardware components
such as interfaces, sensors, LEDs, and power options.
THE RIGHT HARDWARE FOR
YOUR DESIGN REQUIREMENT
CROSS-PLATFORM SOFTWARE
LETS YOU DEVELOP YOUR WAY
PERSONAL SUPPORT FROM
DESIGN TO MANUFACTURE
Whether you need a simple prototype
option or lots of sensors and interfaces for
testing, Laird’s development options have
you in mind. The Bx600 breakout boards
are a cost-effective and direct: The BB600
has through holes for breadboarding; The
BC600 includes a mounted coin cell power
adapter for designing low-power solutions
directly on the board; The BA600 bundles
the coin cell adapter with a USB to UART
adapter for power flexibility and PC testing
with applications like vSP. The DVK-BL600
offers extensive onboard equipment to
help you design for any application.
Laird’s new UwTerminalX software takes
UwTerminal to the next level, bringing
smartBASIC to all desktop environments.
UwTerminalX (Windows / Linux / OSX) lets
you control the BL600 in command mode
and compile, load, and run smartBASIC
scripts on the device. Companion apps for
UwTerminalX include MultiDeviceLoader,
which lets you deploy a script to as many
as ten devices at once, and TermNotify,
which enables connection alerts and status
info from the OS system tray. All of this is
hosted on GitHub, so you can modify the
project to meet your needs.
Laird’s support team is always standing by to
provide integration support, analysis, and
troubleshooting for all currently supported
hardware. Working in the same offices as
Laird engineering, Embedded Wireless
Support is your personal bridge to all of
Laird’s software, experience, and expertise.
Laird guarantees a fast response and is
dedicated to seeing your product through
design to manufacturing. And our online
support center serves as an archive of many
common questions, as well as hundreds of
support documents and software files.
