Part Number:WRL-0006


The RN42XV module by Roving Networks provides drop-in, certified Bluetooth connectivity for existing systems using 802.15.4 modules.  Based on the popular 2 x 10 (2mm) socket footprint often found in embedded applications, the RN42XV offers a complete wireless solution for customers looking to migrate to a standard protocol without modifying existing hardware

The RN42XV Class 2 Bluetooth module is based on the RN42. This module supports multiple interface protocols, is simple to design in, and is fully certified, making it a complete embedded Bluetooth solution. With its high-performance, on-chip antenna and support for Bluetooth EDR, the RN42 delivers up to a 3 Mbps data rate for distances up to 20 meters.

The RN42XV is available in 2 antenna options:

  • PCB trace antenna onboard the module (RN42XVP-I/RM)
  • U.FL connector for external antenna (RN42XVU-I/RM)

This item is RN42XVP (PCB trace antenna)

Starting with firmware 6.10, Roving Networks RN41, RN42, RN41XV and RN42XV modules support both SPP and HID in the same module. By default, the bluetooth module powers up in SPP profile mode. It can be switched to HID by issuing S~,6 command in CMD mode or by pulling high GPIO11 (Pin 9 on XV modules) during power up.
