Bluetooth® v4.0 Dual Mode Class 2 USB Adapter – LM506 Technical Overview
The LM506 is a ROM-based HCI adapter and as such requires a PC or external host running a compatible stack. LM Technologies has been able to reduce the overall footprint and package-size the LM506 Bluetooth® v4.0 low energy USB adapter, achieving a small Form Factor of 19.5mm x 16.0mm x 8.1 mm. The Bluetooth® v4.0 low energy USB Adapter will support a data rate of 3 Mbps in Bluetooth® + EDR Mode and up to 250 Kbps in low energy mode.
The Bluetooth® v4.0 Dual Mode USB adapter is a Class 2 adapter with a maximum distance of 110m in open space. The Bluetooth® v4.0 Dual Mode USB Adapter has an output of 6dbm, which exceeds the Class 2 requirements set forth in the Bluetooth SIG standards, which state that any device with an output above 4dBm is categorised as a Class 1 device.
The Bluetooth® v4.0 Dual-Mode USB adapter is also offered as a Module with Tape and Reel Packaging and acts as a HCI Module. To accommodate this type of use LM has terminated the USB tracks as an SMT module. In module format, it offers a competitive price against any competition. As the device has components on both sides of the PCBA please ask LM for advice on how best to design in the Bluetooth® v4.0 USB adapter as an SMT Module.
