Sena Technologies Introduces a Cost-Effective, Bluetooth Class 2 Module With Bluetooth 2.0+EDR

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 4, 2012) - Sena Technologies, Inc., a leader in industrial Bluetooth, ZigBee and industrial networking solutions, announced the addition of the cost-effective, low power Bluetooth v2.0+EDR Class 2 OEM SMD/DIP module, Parani-BCD210 to its popular Parani series industrial Bluetooth product line. The Parani-BCD210 is a Bluetooth Class 2 OEM SMD/DIP module combining antenna for OEM manufactures who want to implement Bluetooth Class 2 functionality with their products cost effectively and also in a timely manner.

The BCD210 supports Class 2 Bluetooth low power transmission level with reasonable communication distance up to 300m at line-of-sight. The BCD210 supports UART, USB, I2C, PCM, and PIO interfaces for the communication with the OEM products.

The BCD210 is provided with Bluetooth v2.0+EDR compatible firmware and runs internally for SPP (Serial Port Profile) applications by default. The SPP firmware supports up to four simultaneous multiple connections and is designed to work out-of-box for real world SPP applications such as POS (Point-of-sales), industrial automation, home automation, health care, remote metering and other various applications. Optionally, the BCD210 can be supplied with only software stack up to HCI level so entire Bluetooth stack runs on the host side for the application such as USB dongles for computers. OEM manufacturers can even develop and embed their own firmware into the BCD210.

The BCD210 is fully qualified with Bluetooth v2.0+EDR specification so OEM manufacturers can save cost and time for overall OEM product certifications, which makes the BCD210 the ideal solution for larger volume and price-sensitive applications.
