STMicroelectronics : Bluetooth Smart STEVAL-IDB006V1M eval kit-on-a-dongle plugs into a PC’s USB port


STEVAL-IDB006V1M: GUI is accessed via a PC’s USB port

The STEVAL-IDB006V1M from STMicroelectronics is an evaluation board on a USB dongle, based on the SPBTLE-RF Bluetooth® Smart module.

The dongle’s module is ETSI, FCC and IC certified. It uses the BlueNRG-MS, a low-power Bluetooth Smart network processor which is compliant with the Bluetooth 4.1 standard, and supports
both master and slave roles. The SPBTLE-RF module also integrates ST’s BALF-NRG-01D3 balun, a chip antenna and a power supply.

The STEVAL-IDB006V1M dongle is equipped with an STM32L low-power 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M3 microcontroller to control the Bluetooth Smart processor, and also features a USB connector for interfacing to the dongle’s GUI hosted on a PC. This USB connection also provides an interface for firmware updates.

A single-wire debug connector provides for the development of specific firmware on the MCU.
