Topic: Arduino Bluetooth® sku: DEV-08255 (SparkFun) (Read 955 times) previous topic - next topic


I would like to buy the Arduino Bluetooth® sku: DEV-08255 SparkFun for developing as a Bluetooth devide that after programming & removing from PC USB/Serial port, it can:

1. Interface with a sensor using SPI lines to get its data
2. Then do some small calculations
3. Finally send those results to a Bluetooth dongle

Can it be done with SparkFun DEV-08255 & Arduino Alpha 0013 SW tool?

Thanks for any response

Well, no, I don't think it can do what you describe.

You could not program it via USB - it has no (onboard) USB. The point/advantage of the Bluetooth arduino is that it can be wirelessly programmed via bluetooth.

I think you should just get a normal arduino, and add a bluetooth modem like this one http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8332

This would let you perform the tasks you describe, and would be cheaper (and more flexible - reuse the modem) as a bonus

1. I did call SparkFun Technical center & they recommended the DEV-08255 is the one to go. I am sorry mis-lead you by typing too fast. I did type Serial/USB (USB does not existed), but it has J1 for Serial Interface (might be used for download FW or link to Arduino Alpha 0013).

- However, I could not find any FW (program codes) to backup what I need & they recommded me asking in this forum

2. I did verify the Bluetooth® Modem - BlueSMiRF Silver: WRL-08332, I could not find any ATM command that I can talk to SPI pins (to get sensor data), its SPI pins however connected to the BlueTooth BGB-203

3. But as you mentioned (with your experiences) are you sure that I can get data from SPI sensor then transfer its data to another BlueTooth dongle with the WRL-08332---> can you provide any links so that I can verify it?

Many thanks for help
