Page 1 of 1
Two new Bluetooth modules are targeted for OEM integration for short-range wireless data connectivity. Manufactured to fulfill OEM needs for embedded short-range communication in products, the low-cost RB4000 and RB4000HM modules from Radicom Research act as RS-232 cable replacement and offer an affordable, easy alternative for wireless point-to-point communication across distances up to 60 feet.
Featuring Serial Port Profile (SPP), the RB4000 Series is a full Bluetooth system solution with an integrated controller, antenna and Bluetooth transceiver. Utilizing the BlueCore4-External Chipset from CSR, these Class 2 modules are Bluetooth V2.0 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) compliant for increased throughput, reduced battery consumption and improved security. The result is faster pairing and superior performance, even in the presence of interference from 802.11 (Wi-Fi) wireless devices or other 2.4 GHz radios.
Designed for integration in barcode readers, medical devices and other monitoring systems, the RB4000’s low power consumption and extreme operating temperature range (-40° to +85°C) provide flexibility across a number of industries and situations.
Model RB4000 (surface-mount PCB module with onboard antenna), RB4000HM (through-hole module) and RB4000HM-c (built-in U.FL connector) are available now with prices starting at $9.00 for the RB4000 in quantities of 500 pieces. Bulk discounts are available for higher OEM volume requests. Customized OEM specifications and private labeling are welcome.
