Description

Our Adafruit Bluefruit LE (Bluetooth Smart, Bluetooth Low Energy, 4.0 Bluetooth) nRF8001 Breakout allows you to establish wireless links between your Arduino and any iOS or Android device (4.3 +) device. It works by simulating a UART device beneath the surface, sending ASCII data back and forth between devices, letting you decide what to send and what to do with it either way the connection.

Unlike classic Bluetooth, BLE has no contracts to sign and no major hoops that you have to jump through to create iOS devices that you can legally design and distribute in the App Store, which makes it a great choice for you. and still has) a lot of restrictions around it on the iOS platform.

And now that Android also officially supports Bluetooth Low Energy (as of Android 4.3), it's also - finally! - a universal communication channel covering the main mobile operating systems people are using today.

UART data link (with an RX and TX characteristic) we started getting super fast with this BLE module which can act like every day. Send and receive data up to 10 meters away, from your Arduino to an iOS device. We've even made it easy to get started with our own BLE connect app that has a "serial console" for sending / receiving data and also an 'arduino pin i / o control station " to let you set pins or outputs, high or low logic or even output PWM output, as well as read button presses and analog inputs. You can start prototyping your accessory and then use our open source Objective C code to base your new app on!

The nRF8001 is nice in that it is just a BLE 'peripheral' (client) front end, so you can use any micrcontroller with SPI to drive it. We have example C ++ code for Arduino, which is a microcontroller, but some microcontroller is required - it is not a stand-alone module!

This is a product for ADVANCED USERS - At this time we recommend this product for people who are either OK with using the apps available (Nordic's UART demo or our Bluefruit LE Connect) repository). We do not know how to write your own iOS or Android app

NrfxnumX Bluetooth Low Energy breakout, and start using some of the sample sketches we provide with connect to an iOS or Android device.

We also have an app for Android users available here!
