Sena Technologies Inc. announces the addition of the Parani-BCD210 module to its Parani series industrial Bluetooth product line. Parani-BCD210 is a cost-effective, low power Bluetooth v2.0+EDR Class 2 OEM SMD/DIP module.

Parani-BCD210 combines an antenna for OEM manufactures who want to implement Bluetooth Class 2 functionality with their products cost effectively and in a timely manner. It supports Class 2 Bluetooth low power transmission levels with reasonable communication distance up to 300m at line-of-sight. BCD210 supports UART, USB, I2C, PCM, and PIO interfaces for the communication with the OEM products.

It comes with Bluetooth v2.0+EDR compatible firmware and runs internally for SPP (Serial Port Profile) applications by default. The SPP firmware supports up to four simultaneous multiple connections and is designed to work out-of-box for real world SPP applications such as POS (Point-of-sales), industrial automation, home automation, health care, remote metering and other various applications.

Optionally, the BCD210 can be supplied with only software stack up to HCI level so entire Bluetooth stack runs on the host side for the application such as USB dongles for computers.�OEM manufacturers can even develop and embed their own firmware into the BCD210.

BCD210 is fully qualified with Bluetooth v2.0+EDR specification so OEM manufacturers can save cost and time for overall OEM product certifications, which makes the BCD210 the ideal solution for larger volume and price-sensitive applications. BCD210 is available to ship immediately.

Product applications include high-speed data transceiver systems for short distance communication; PCs/Personal Digital Assistants (PDA); Bluetooth USB dongle; Bluetooth serial dongle; industrial automation devices; automotive applications; medical systems and POS (Point-of-sales) devices
