Features & Applications
The RN4870 Bluetooth Low Energy module is designed for easy implementation into a broad range of applications. It delivers up to 2.5x throughput improvement and more secure connections vs. Bluetooth 4.1 based products. Developers can easily interface to the device via a standard UART interface, available on most Microcontrollers and Processors.
The RN4870 has a completely integrated Bluetooth software stack, and offers a shielded regulatory certified version with built-in antenna. Developers are freed from the complexities of Bluetooth Software and RF development and can simply utilize the RN4870 as a wireline replacement. Perfect for IoT (Internet of Things) applications, when interfaced to a Bluetooth Low Energy enabled smartphone or Bluetooth Internet Gateway, applications can be monitored, controlled and updated from anywhere in the world.
