The Easy Bluetooth

The Easy Bluetooth is a RoboTech RBT-001 Bluetooth serial modulewith an adapter specifically designed to be used with the Parallax Board of Education® AppMod Header or breadboard. In addition, the  Easy Bluetooth can plug into any 0.1 inch spacing development platform which allows it to be breadboard friendly, and also easy to implement into a soldering application. The module has two parts, the RBT-001 module and the SIP with voltage regulator PCB. With the on-board regulator, the module can be connected to voltages higher than 3.3 VDC, such as the Board of Education regulated supply (+5 VDC) without worry of damaging the unit; while the RX and TX can utilize serial communication at CMOS and TTL levels.
