BC127

BC127
BC127 is the newest generation of fully integrated Dual Mode Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) modules. BC127 offers better performance in every single aspect to the other Bluetooth Classical Modules:
 
Smallest Package: BC127 comes with an integrated antenna, running all the Bluetooth Stack and Codecs in a very small form factor at 11.8mm x 18mm. BC127 comes Bluetooth, FCC, CE, IC, JRF (Japan) and KC (Korea) certified so customers will not need to have to go through Bluetooth certification for the end product.
 
Highest Performances: BC127 is Bluetooth 4.0 certified offering Bluetooth Low Energy and very low power consumption in every use case (<60mWatts while streaming music, <0.28mWatt connected Idle). Additionally BC127 allows a range of up to 30m connecting with a standard Smart Phone.
 
Audio Quality: BC127 integrates all high quality Audio Codec such as ApTX, AAC, MP3 and SBS high definition In addition the user can configure the module to transmit the Audio received via a high quality integrated Analog Codec (96dB SNR) or directly to a digital interface at a chosen configurable sampling rate.
 
Fully Integrated: BC127 comes with Melody and offers a high level UART command interface that provides full control of all profiles needed such as HFP1.6 (Wide Band Speech HandsFree), A2DP/AVRCP 1.4 (Music Streaming), PBAP (Access to Phone Book) and connects to Android and iOS devices.

BC127: Melody Audio Proximity Demo using iOS

 Melody Audio Proximity demo using two BC127 Development Kits and an iOS device.

Sending Audio over iAP on iPhone

 Since the BC127 can transfer data over IAP at high speeds, we did a demo showing Audio being transfered from the BC127 to the iPhone using the IAP data link which we thought was quite cool. The Audio is uncompressed 16Khz/16bit in this example. The Wave file is sent to the UART of the BC127 which then sends it via Bluetooth to the iPhone.

BC127: Highspeed Throughput over iAP2 Demo

A demonstration showing the high speed throughput over iAP2 using a BC127 module. A speed of about 740kbit/s is achieved from the BC127 to the iOS device and a speed of about 550kbit/s is achieved from the iOS device to the BC127. 

BC127: Libratone
Libratone used BC127-aptX to receive High Quality Audio to its ZIPP, LOOP and DIVA speakers. Here is the promotional video for the LOOP, an extremely nice and very stylish scandinavian product.
BC127: Glowdeck
This is a demo of Glowdeck using real-time control, conternt, over-the-air firmware updates via BLE using the Streams app for iPhone and the BC127 The technology can be bought at http://www.plsound.com/shop/streamsbc127/
BC127: Metz Topas TV
Metz used BC127 in the Topas TV series to receive, but also transmit audio over Bluetooth. Topas also uses BC127 to connect to external speakers over Bluetooth. Here is a demo in German of the Bluetooth functionality on Metz Topas TV. 
BC127: Antique Radio
Scott Lumsden spent a few months turning a 70 year old Zenith Radio into a sophisticated Bluetooth speaker using BC127, 8 RGB LEDs, new speakers and amplifier, a motorized dial and 5 custom Arduino-compatible boards. A very nice project indeed.
