Dual-mode Bluetooth module evaluation kit


This kit comes with the Dual-mode Bluetooth module, and the XBee USB Adapter for easy testing with PC.

Dual-mode Bluetooth is a wireless module that allows bi-directional transparent data transfer between the TTL serial and Bluetooth devices. It is designed to be master/slave-in-one, also, it supports iBeacon. You can easily operate the module via AT commands, like: set baudrate, change broadcast name, and IO control, etc.


  • Dual-mode Bluetooth, completely compatible with iOS and/or Android devices
  • Works as a full-duplex serial pipe after pairing, requires no Bluetooth protocol knowledge
  • Fully configurable via AT commands
  • XBee interface
  • Comes with iOS and Android demo code, like: mobile robot remote control, data acquisition, device status monitoring, etc.

XBee USB Adapter Overview

XBee USB Adapter is a UART communication board which supports XBee connectivity, features UART interface, USB interface, and onboard buttons/LEDs, provides an easy way for developing/debugging.

It can be used in the following situations :

  • Test XBee modules: onboard buttons/LEDs for easy testing
  • Program/Configure XBee modules: make it easy to program/configure the XBee modules frequently
  • USB to UART module: features CP2102, provides UART interface and power output interface, connect it to your system easily

Note : XBee modules above refer to modules with XBee-compatible interface, like: Core2530 (B), Dual-mode Bluetooth, etc.
