RN-41-EK: Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Class 1
The RN-41-EK evaluation board is a field-ready, Bluetooth SIG qualified prototyping platform for the RN41 modules. The board has the flexibility to connect directly to PCs via a standard USB interface (via the FTDI chipset) or to embedded processors through the TTL UART interface. The status LEDs, dip switches, and signal headers enable rapid prototyping and integration into existing systems.
You configure and control the modules from a console with a simple ASCII command language. Once the configuration is set up, the module can connect over Bluetooth. You use the evaluation kit to configure the Bluetooth module using the command interface, create connections, and transfer data. See “Resources & Related Documents” on page 16 for information on available documentation.
The RN-41-EK evaluation board supports the serial port profile (SPP) and human interface device (HID) profiles. The instructions in this document use the SPP profile. For more information on these profiles and how to switch between them, refer to the Bluetooth Command Reference & Advanced Information User’s Guide.
