Very capable bluetooth module – Wireless Bluetooth RS232 TTL Transceiver Module Reviews

posted by OzTrev on 09/09/2011

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
o Very capable bluetooth module with serial port profile
o Cheap price (even when compared to a certain auction site)
o Free planet wide transportation :-)
Cons:
The distance between pins is not your standard 2.54mm and not even your Xbee non-standard 2mm - it's less. You will need to solder this to a board of some type. Luckily, you need only connect a few pins (hint: use plenty of flux when soldering)
Other:
Use to send and receive TTL data from a microcontroller (PIC, Atmel, Arm etc) over bluetooth to a virtual serial port on your PC or mobile phone.
Bottomline:
If you're considering buying one, take my advice and buy two now. It comes in very handy for adding short-range (10 meters) wireless control to any robot or other device.
