Every BL600 Series module is designed to enable OEMs to add single-mode Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to
small, portable, power-conscious devices. The BL600 modules are enabled with Laird’s smart BASIC, an
event-driven programming language that enables OEMs to make their BLE product development quicker and
simpler, significantly reducing time to market. smart BASIC enables customers to develop a complete
embedded application inside the compact BL600 hardware, connecting to a wide array of external sensors via
its I2C, SPI, UART, ADC or GPIO interfaces.
Based on the world-leading Nordic Semiconductor nRF51822 chipset, the BL600 modules provide ultra-low
power consumption with outstanding wireless range via 4 dBm of transmit power. A broad range of BLE
profiles including Temperature and Heart Rate are available and smart BASIC provides the ideal mechanism to
support any BLE profile development of your choice. This document should be read in conjunction with the
smart BASIC user manual.
