NEW PRODUCT – Bluetooth 4.0 USB Module (v2.1 Back-Compatible)

NEW PRODUCT – Bluetooth 4.0 USB Module (v2.1 Back-Compatible) – Add Bluetooth capability to your computer super fast with a USB BT 4.0 adapter. This adapter is backwards compatible with v2.1 and earlier, but also supports the latest v4.0/Bluetooth Low Energy. Inside lies a CSR8510 Bluetooth USB host.

We’ve used this with great success on a Windows 7 computer, installing as a ‘generic’ Bluetooth device, but we expect it to work just fine with any modern computer as this chipset is very common. So far we’ve tested it to communicate with Bluetooth data modules only.

We got a mix of package styles, one is rectangular and the other is semi-circular. You may get one or the other in your order, both are completely identical in functionality.

Technical Details:

  • Max Dimensions: 18.66mm / 0.73″ x 22.67mm / 0.89″
  • Weight: 23.82g
  • Sensitivity: -86dBm
  • Transmission: +6dBm
  • CSR8510 Bluetooth USB host

In stock and shipping now!
