Bluetooth® 4.0 Low Energy (BLE) Modules for OEM– RB1000, RB1000HM
- Low Cost, Low Energy
- For Automotive, Computing, Fitness, Handsets, Infotainment, Remotes, Telematics and TV's






Radicom Research’s Embedded RB1000 and RB1000HM are single-mode Bluetooth® modules designed to meet the emerging Bluetooth 4.0 standards for OEM applications.  These embedded Bluetooth 4.0 modules integrate the entire profiles, applications, radio and Bluetooth protocol stack, so external processor is not needed.  With compliance to Bluetooth low energy standard, the RB1000 family enables the creation of a new market for tiny, cost-effective and power-efficient wireless consumer products such as watches, medical sensors, mice, TV remote controls and fitness trainers.

The RB1000 family modules can support connection setup and data transfer as low as 10ms, allowing an application to form a connection and then transfer authenticated data in few milliseconds for a short communication burst before quickly tearing down the connection.  It takes less time to make a connection than conventional Bluetooth wireless technology and consume approximately only 1/20th of the power of Bluetooth Basic Rate. 

Certain APP's allow the RB1000 family modules to be powered directly with standard 3V coin cell or pair of AAA batteries.

The RB1000 family provides superior performance in the presence of interference from 802.11 (Wi-Fi) wireless devices and other 2.4GHz radios.   The module contains internal EEPROM for loading OEM specific parameters and settings to create custom Bluetooth modules.

There are two platforms available. The RB1000 is a surface mount PCB module with on-board antenna.  The RB1000HM is a DIP, through-hole module.
