Overview

It is easily possible to add Bluetooth connectivity to our Computer on Modules. For modules that don't come with Bluetooth hardware on-module, support can be added by using a Bluetooth adapter. The table below presents the modules with integrated Bluetooth:

Toradex SoMs featuring the Azurewave AW-CM276NF Wi-Fi / Bluetooth module:

System on Module Version
Apalis iMX8 QuadMax 4GB Wi-Fi / Bluetooth IT V1.0A and newer
Apalis iMX8 QuadPlus 2GB Wi-Fi / Bluetooth V1.0A and newer
Apalis iMX8X QuadXPlus 2GB Wi-Fi / Bluetooth IT V1.0A and newer
Verdin iMX8M Mini Quad 2GB Wi-Fi / Bluetooth IT V1.0A and newer
Colibri iMX8X QuadXPlus 2GB Wi-Fi / Bluetooth IT V1.0A and newer

Bluetooth on WEC

Bluetooth support is not included in the Toradex standard WINCE/WEC images, but if you are familiar with the Windows CE Platform Builder, you can add Bluetooth support. For USB Bluetooth devices using the HCI transport layer, we provide USB Bluetooth Flash installers to add Bluetooth support to a standard Toradex Windows CE BSP.

Our Standard Embedded Linux Images support Bluetooth HCI-USB, HCI-UART.

Bluetooth on Linux

Since the BSP 2.7b4, Bluetooth support is added to the Toradex pre-built image through the kernel driver backports with BlueZ 5 Bluetooth software stack. For more information, see the article referenced below.
