BM78 Bluetooth 4.2 Dual Mode PICtail/PICtail Plus Daughter Board

This Microchip PICtail/PICtail Plus Daughter Board is a tool for users to investigate the BM78 Bluetooth 4.2 (BR/EDR/LE) Module. Users can develop the board directly via USB utilising the BM78 development software. The PICtail/PICtail Plus connector allows the board to interface with Microcontroller development platforms such as the Explorer 16 (DM240001) and Explorer 8 (DM160228).

The featured BM78 is a Bluetooth 4.2 Module that offers dual mode functionality, being able to communicate in BR/EDR and BLE protocols. It supports GAP, SDP, SPP, and GATT profiles. Data is transferred over the Bluetooth link via transparent UART mode, which when combined with the module’s UART interface simplifies the task of integrating the BM78 with a host MCU.
