Laird has released its BTM46x Series Bluetooth modules. The devices are based on the Cambridge Silicon Radio (CSR) BC04 chipset and its firmware allows OEMs to support Bluetooth data connectivity for all PCs, smartphones and tablets including Apple iOS devices. The BTM46x firmware also enables Apple licensees to leverage Bluetooth data connectivity, via the iAP protocol, into their MFI accessories.

Key application areas for the BTM46x Series include medical devices, ePOS terminals, barcode scanners, industrial cable replacement, and smartphone/tablet 'Appcessories'. Every BTM46x Series module is designed to add robust, short-range Bluetooth data connectivity to any device.

With a compact footprint of 12.5 x 22mm, the modules are designed to support a separate power supply for I/O, in addition to including a complete Bluetooth v2.1 protocol stack for increased ease of integration. The BTM46x Series provides support for multi-point connections and includes the following Bluetooth profiles: Serial Port Profile (SPP), HID (Human Interface Device) and Apple's iAP protocol. BTM46x modules are fully qualified as a Bluetooth End Product, whilst also holding FCC Modular, IC, CE and MIC (Japan) regulatory approvals, enabling designers to quickly integrate the modules into devices without the need for additional qualification resources.
