Introduction

This DF-Bluetooth module offers an affordable way to let your microcontroller talk to your Bluetooth devices such as Bluetooth mobile phones, laptop, and Bluetooth adapter. The Bluetooth module provides TTL level UART interface which is supported by almost every microcontroller in the market.

It is also designed to be compatible with most popular Arduino controller. Simply plug into Arduino IO Expansion Shield, a Bluetooth Arduino is ready to use.

How to use

The DF-Bluetooth module is based on the specification of Bluetooth V2.0, compatible with V1.1. A Bluetooth adaptor is required to communicate with the DF-Bluetooth module. When it is paired with other Bluetooth devices, the DF-Bluetooth is always set to slave mode.

The IVT BlueSoleil is recommended to manager all your Bluetooth devices.

Here is the sample: Step 1: Open BlueSoleil software (Figure 1) and right click the yellow ball in the centre screen, click “Search Devices” , an icon named EPBMX-COM will appear after few seconds. The EPBMX-COM is the DF-Bluetooth module. Figure 1

Step 2: Right click EPBMX-COM icon, click “Pair”. A window will popup ask for PassKey which is “0000” by default (Figure 2). Figure 2

Step 3: Double click EPBMX-COM to connect to DF-Bluetooth. Figure 3

Step 4: Upload test code to Arduino.

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(115200);             //Set serial baud rate to 9600
}

void loop()
{
  Serial.print("Hello!");           //print out hello string
  delay(1000);                  //1 second delay
}
