Overview

The BL620-US USB Dongle has been developed to take advantage of the BL620 module, providing the ability to add BLE Central Mode capabilities to Windows operating systems supporting a USB interface and virtual COM port. The control and configuration is via a standard virtual COM port and smartBASIC. The dongle provides the ability to load smartBASIC applications over the air (OTA) to a BL600 peripheral mode module.
