The connectBlue OEM serial port adapter provides a simple way to add Bluetooth connectivity to existing legacy hardware using just RS232/UART interface.
The OEM Serial Port Adapter™ series is a complete set of Bluetooth modules specially designed to make integration of Bluetooth an easy and effective task.
All connectBlue modules are fully qualified as end products making them cost effective and fast to integrate into your product without the need for further testing*. The modules are available in class 2 /short-range as well as Class1/long-range with integrated antenna or external antenna connector for metal enclosure applications.
The majority of connectBlue Bluetooth modules are available from
The modules with serial interface (SPI, UART and/or RS232 at present) provide a wireless transparent serial link using the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile. By using one Bluetooth module and a Bluetooth Dongle, a PC can be wirelessly connected to any product that was previously tethered by a serial cable. Alternatively, by using Two connectBlue modules, two products can communicate via high-speed serial as if connected by cable, but with the freedom of wireless communication. These are just two examples of the many applications that our customers deploy.
The modules with HCI interface are suitable for use in embedded applications that have their own Bluetooth Stack that interfaces to the HCI layer. Drivers are available for Windows CE, Linux and Embedded applications. By using the conectBlue module in this way, all of the hardware characteristics of the connectBlue products remain the same, but the full power of Bluetooth can be attained from the Bluetooth Protocol stack running on your own system.
