Avnet Embedded in EMEA, an Avnet company, announced a special offer on Bluegiga’s Bluetooth SMART (also known as Bluetooth 4.0) BLE 112 development kit.
Costing just $300, the kit contains everything designers need to get started quickly; for an additional $100 Avnet Embedded will also add three more BLE112 modules and one extra dongle. Bluetooth SMART products are ideal where low-power operation, negligible latency and security are critical, like heart rate, blood and glucose monitoring sensors, as well as industrial and home automation applications.
The new generation of Bluetooth dramatically reduces power consumption while ensuring excellent performance and security. Typically Bluetooth SMART products transmit data payloads up to 15 times faster than conventional Bluetooth technology and overall power consumption is reduced by over 90%.
The development kit contains BLE112 evaluation board, BLED112 Bluetooth 4.0 SMART USB dongle, two BLE112 Bluetooth 4.0 SMART modules, firmware programming cable, cables and documentation, and access to Bluegiga’s Bluetooth 4.0 software development kit
