Earlier this month Laird unveiled Cyclops, a demonstration of a fully finished solution powered by the BT900. The BT900 series is a small, smart, simple module that makes it easy to add Classic BT and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) functionality to small, portable, low power devices. Laird’s BT900 modules are designed for optimum […]
Even the most energy-frugal Bluetooth devices typically require a charge at least every 48 hours. But with the introduction of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), devices can communicate for months or years on a coin cell battery. This shift allows long term connectivity in devices that had previously been impractical.
BLE works by engaging in […]

Due to new requirements for Electronic Health Records (EHR) generation and storage, hospitals and clinics are looking for more efficient and reliable methods to deliver that data to online record repositories. As a result, medical device manufacturers are being asked to incorporate wireless connectivity into their products.
The BT900 Series is a fully approved, programmable module that represents the culmination of a 2 year program of investment and development into the Classic Bluetooth and BLE module product lines. This innovative new series provides OEMs a fully configurable balance of RF performance, BT / BLE functionality and power consumption to rapidly […]
