Module provides Bluetooth, Zigbee extension for IoT platforms

The BLU Sense module from UDOO is in stock at distributor Mouser Electronics. Fully compatible with UDOO X86 single board computers, the versatile and affordable BLU Sense module provides an ideal wireless I/O extension for Internet of Things (IoT) platforms.

The module features a Texas Instruments CC2650 Arm Cortex-M3 processor plus a six-axis accelerometer and magnetometer gyroscope and a three-axis digital gyroscope for motion-sensingm applications.

It offers Bluetooth low energy 4.1, Zigbee, and 6LoWPAN connectivity and is powered by a button-cell battery or an external power supply (maximum 5.5 V).

The device includes three user-configurable LEDs, eight digital general-purpose inputs and outputs (GPIOs), and six analog inputs.

Measuring 45 mm × 35 mm the module’s snap-in I2C connector allows engineers to connect UDOO BRICKS modules, offering a wide array of opportunities for customisation and expanded functionality.

UDOO BRICKS work along a cascade configuration, enabling engineers to connect multiple sensors to the BLU Sense module.

The module is supported by the UDOO BLU Manager app for Android devices.

Using the app, engineers can view and manage multiple UDOO BLU devices, read data from connected BRICKS modules, configure GPIO pins, and update firmware.
