Embedded M2M Solutions - Laird Technologies Android 2.3 Gingerbread Supports 40 Series Radio Modules


Even in the age of television and the Internet, there are numerous users who use radios for both entertainment and communication purposes. These individual users and companies will always be looking for ways to reduce the expenses they make on their radio equipments and get the best possible results from those equipments. Radio modules provide development platforms on which the developers can test their products and introduce cheaper and better products.


Helping such development, Laird Technologies has announced that the company's Android (News - Alert) 2.3 Gingerbread technology now supports 40 Series radio modules. This support means that users will now get safe and dependable connectivity in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.

The new update supports Version 4 of Cisco (News - Alert) Compatible Extensions (CCX) and it can be deployed and managed easily. Already, a large number of developers are using this updated version. 40 Series radio modules allow users to have a single interface for both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies.

The Android 2.3 platform allows both users and developers to do much more than what they did before. Along with an advanced user interface, it also provides a soft keyboard for better use.

“Business-critical mobile devices such as handheld mobile computers are beginning to run Android instead of Windows Embedded Handheld or Windows Embedded Compact,” said product director, Chris Bolinger, Laird Technologies (News - Alert). “40 Series radio modules now offer the same proven enterprise-grade features on both Windows and Android.”

In 2011, the company offered a way for embedded designers to add advanced Bluetooth profiles to their products. Named BTM 440/441/442/443, these modules provide improved data modules for Bluetooth and support Bluetooth 2.1 standard. They have also secured the complete FCC (News - Alert), CE and Bluetooth SIG approvals and are available in both AT command or multipoint API modes, the company has stated.
