Melbourne, Australia – March 5, 2012:   M2M Connectivity is launching the new OLP425 Bluetooth low energy module from connectBlue.  Based on the latest Bluetooth low energy technology (SoC Ti CC2540) and offering easy add-on extras, the connectBlue OLP425 can be used as a complete stand-alone module with no additional hardware required.

The Bluetooth low energy module OLP425 has a number of digital and analog GPIOs and comes with optional extras such as battery, temperature sensor, accelerometers, and humidity sensor.  Introduced in 2010 in the Bluetooth v4.0 Specification, Bluetooth low energy technology offers extremely long battery lifetime, fast connection times and interoperability.

“But we can offer more than “just” the Bluetooth low energy advantages,” says Rolf Nilsson, CEO of connectBlue. “Our new OLP425 module is a unique low energy platform; our hardware is either delivered out-of-the-box or it is extra-equipped with added features. The customers then embed their own application software. All in all – our new module provides a complete and cost efficient Bluetooth low energy experience.”

Using the IAR Embedded Workbench, developers can embed their own application software in the OLP425 Bluetooth low energy module. Possible customer application software includes machine / device access and asset management, data conversion, data acquisition, and logic.  As Bluetooth low energy technology is particularly suitable for small, mobile devices, connectBlue is introducing a new smaller connectBlue module standard with the Bluetooth low energy platform module OLP425.

The Bluetooth low energy platform module OLP425 is radio type approved for Europe, US, and Canada, allowing developers to save on development costs and easily integrate wireless communication without having to go through lengthy and costly approval and qualification processes.
