BLE module released for internet of things

15 April 2020

Dialog Semiconductor plc has introduced a new Bluetooth low energy (BLE) module for the next generation of connected devices for the internet of things (IoT).

The Smartbond Tiny module reduces the cost of adding BLE to an IoT system such as connected consumer, connected medical, smart home and smart appliance applications. The module incorporates two software features that will eliminate the complexity associated with traditional BLE development and allows consumers to develop IoT products regardless of software coding capabilities, Dialog said.

The first software feature is Dialog Serial Port Service (DSPS) software that emulates a universal asynchronous receiver-transmitter (UART) serial port over BLE, removing the need to write Bluetooth software for BLE pipe applications when connecting the module to a host MCU’s serial port. The second is Dialog’s new codeless software that replaces complex code with a simple series of human readable ASCII commands that can be used to generate customer applications.
