Bluetooth on Toradex Computer on Modules

Introduction

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.

Hardware

You can either use a Toradex SoM with integrated on-SoM Bluetooth or add a Bluetooth solution to the carrier board.

Third-party Bluetooth Solutions

This article includes a list of tested Bluetooth modules as well as highlights recommended ones, at the end of the article:

Embedded 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.

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

Windows CE

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.

Migration in Progress

The Peripheral database is not yet available in the new developer website. See it on the archived developer website.
