Dongle

High-end multi-purpose BLE USB dongle with external SMA antennas for applications requiring precision & multiple concurrent roles : BLE scanner, BLE data connectivity and dynamic BLE advertising (virtual beacon).

Plug & Play integration with uGateway and ubudu Cloud services.

Supports Bluetooth LE 4.2 and upgradeable to Bluetooth LE 5.0.

Features

  • USB communication with host device (eg. uGateway with V2 software or almost any PC)
  • Advertising can support any BLE advertising format
  • Continuous scanning to provide best data update frequency
  • Allows connections from mobile devices for 2-way data exchange with host computer
  • Supports voice transmission over BLE
  • Firmware update over USB, firmware customizations available
  • Qualified omni-directional (default) and directional antenna availables
  • Integrated with ubudu Cloud services (Mobile SDKs, ubudu Manager)
  • Upgradeable to Bluetooth 5.0 available by end of 2017 (for functionalities not requiring hardware upgrades)
