The new IC integrates a rewritable memory for downloading users’ custom programs, which are stored in EEPROM. This enables customization without any need for an external microcontroller. The IC promotes adoption of Bluetooth® communication for small applications that do not have wireless functions, due to cost and PCB size restrictions

The IC incorporates the Bluetooth® Serial Port Profile (SPP) that is widely used for smartphones and other mobile equipment, facilitating development of Bluetooth® compliant applications.

Applications

General wireless data communication such as remote control, sensor devices, toy; healthcare; and accessories for smartphone.
