Original Press Release:

Introducing V4.0 BLE and Classic Dual Modes Bluetooth Modules from Radicom Research

Host Control Based, Featuring UART, I2S, PCM and USB Interfaces, FCC, IC and CE Certified.

SAN JOSE, CA. – Radicom Research, a modem industry leader, announced today the release of their RB2001 family Bluetooth modules that support Bluetooth BLE V4.0 and Classic standards.

The RB2001 series Bluetooth modules are based on CSR’s latest Host Controlled Interface (HCI) solution. It provides a fully qualified Bluetooth V4.0 system for data and voice communications. The RB2001 Bluetooth modules are controlled via CSR’s Host Controlled Interface (HCI) BlueCore BCCMD Commands. It supports V4.0 BLE. Classic BR/EDR and High Speed V3.0.

The RB2001 modules support serial UART, PCM, I²S and optional USB interfaces. With unique Wideband Speech, improved CODEC and a reduction of background noise and interface built in, the RB2001 offers a dramatic improvement to call quality with wireless accessories.

These modules are designed to work with Linux and Windows operating systems. The RB2001 is a HCI command based device.  OEM’s can use PSK setting to configure their desired parameters via firmware provided inside CSR chipset.  All the upper layer code runs at the host side via standard HCI commands plus the extension BCCMD from CSR.

The RB2001 is a SMT module. The RB2001HM is a DIP (Through-Hole).  All RB2001 modules have been FCC, IC and CE certified.  Featuring –30°C to +85°C operating temperature, the RB2001 modules are designed and built for a variety of industrial OEM applications.
