United Kingdom : Bluegiga Bluetooth Smart Dongle from RS Components is OS independent and Raspberry Pi ready.

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, the global distributor for engineers, is stocking the Bluegiga BLED112 Bluetooth SmartA USB dongle, which comes with everything needed for developing low-cost, low-energy wireless applications to run on a wide variety of platforms including Raspberry Pi.

The BLED112 is Bluetooth v4.0 single-mode compliant, supports master and slave modes, and allows up to eight connections, and implements a USBCDC interface for host OS communicates. The BLED112 includes Bluegiga s Bluetooth Smart software stack which allows developers to create their own onboard applications using Bluegiga s BGScript scripting language, eliminating the need for an external host. Alternatively a host application can interface with the BLED112 via the OS-independent BGAPI software also incorporated in Bluegiga s Bluetooth Smart software stack.

The easy-to-use dongle is ideal for applications like energy-conscious Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and can be used with various operating systems such as WindowsA, Android, iOS or Linux.

Moreover, BLED112 can be used with Raspberry Pi computers and is ready to use with the latest Raspberry Pi Model B+. RS has introduced several wireless modules for Raspberry Pi in recent months, including the SparqEE 3G Cellular board, Edimax Wi-FiA Dongle and Low-Power Radio Solutions 868MHz / 434MHz dongle.

We now have a Raspberry Pi ready solution for all the major wireless technologies used in IoT, remote control, automation, M2M and home/office networking applications, said Glenn Jarrett, Global Head of Product Marketing at RS Components. We believe RS now provides the best range of ready-to-use Raspberry Pi products and accessories across the EMEA region.
