The assembly time of the BLE BoosterPack can vary from 1 day to 8 business days. After placing your order, you may request your expected shipment date via email. Please contact us if you have any questions.
NOTE: We cannot ship assembled Bluetooth modules outside of the US. If your address is outside of the US, your order will be cancelled. We can however ship the blank PCB for the BoosterPack. Thank you for your understanding.
The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) BoosterPack has been designed to make it as easy as possible to use BLE in your LaunchPad based projects. The BLE BoosterPack is built around the easy to use BLE112 module from Bluegiga. The BoosterPack can be powered by (and can charge) a lithium battery, making the entire system portable. It also has an ultra-high efficiency switching regulator that minimizes the power consumption of the system. The most important feature of the BLE BoosterPack is that no prior knowledge BLE is needed, the device is configured to be a simple UART pass-through.
This BLE Booster has been built from the ground up for low-power operation. There are no status LEDs that burn through power, the BLE112 module can be reset and woken up by the MSP430, and the switching regulator has an efficiency of up to 95%. Even the voltage divider used to measure the battery voltage can be disabled.
Open source demos and example code are provided for both Android and Python on GitHub. The BLE BoosterPack’s example firmware will work right out of the box on the MSP430 LaunchPad, making getting started with Bluetooth Low Energy as easy and painless as possible.
