SHIPPING NOTE: The "Worldwide Standard" shipping method applies to the US as well. The standard shipping method is USPS First Class, or USPS First Class International if you are outside of the US. The domestic express method is USPS Flat Rate Express Mail, which usually arrives the next business day by 3pm.
Current design: Version 2.0, Jan. 12, 2013

It looks like some of the parts you've selected for this board are now only available on Mouser for > 5k minimum order quantities. Can you update the mouser project with alternative resistors?
I am using BLE-112 A module for my project. I want to use it in master (scan) mode. I am able to scan the advertising devices but not sure how to connect to them. I have tried many attempts but no success. Is it possible in BGScript? I am attaching the code used. Any possible help would be appreciated.
We're ordering a set of your new boards and are using one of your V1.0 boards for testing. We just ran into a problem reading ADIO P0_0, P0_1 and P0_2, looks like they're being held high on your board. Could you possibly send your v1.0 schematic to me so we can verify it's functionality?
Great job with supplying these!
I used your BLE112 breakout board, the BGLib you wrote for Arduino, and Bluegiga's iOS demo app (as a starting point) in my senior project.
FYI, I have been using your breakout modules for all of our BLE development and love them. Any plans on doing a BLE113 version? My understanding is that they use the CC2541 256k part and that would help us do more testing with hardware I2C and the over-the-air firmwares updates. Plus the BLE112 is pretty tight on memory anyway (I want to build a Pawn version of the CC254x firmware, but cannot do it in just 128k).
Is there anyway I can choose other than Express shipping for within the US? I like the fast ship time but it requires a personal signature. So I end up having to either wait a couple days after the first delivery attempt or make a trip to the post office.
Is that your choice or an iNMOJO thing?
I have some questions before ordering a BLE112 breakout board. I want to use BLED112 board along with it, does that work with Linux? If Yes, can you point me where I can find a starting guide for Linux (I have been searching online, but no formal guide). And if I order it in a couple of days, when can I expect it to be shipped?
Hi Jeff, really very nice design and great work!. What about pairing with the metawatch? It should be possible because it's the same Ti controller or ?
If I order an assembled board how long would that take? I would like to buy an assembled board but if it is going to be a long wait then it might be faster to do the assembly myself. Just trying to decide which way to go. Thanks!
If I plug this in with the micro USB or otherwise power it up (green power light comes on), should I be able to see it with BLExplor or any of the other bluetooth apps on my iphone5? Also trying with an iPad with no luck..
Q1) It looks like the solder jumpers (SJ1 - SJ4) come default connected. Correct?
Q2) What is the proper use of pins 2 and 9 on the debug connector?
In one design I connect pin 2 to my module's 3V Vbatt and pin 9 unconnected.
This seems to work though I suspect some programming errors when Vbatt is low
Using your PCB pins 2 and 9 are now both connected to 3V Vbatt coin cell. This is also working but I am worried its not proper. Is pin 2 or pin 9 an output from the CC Debugger power?
Regarding your BGLIB on Arduino, what kind of firmware have I to load on BLE112?
Is there a C Library for UART use?
Very good work!
Really looking forward to incorporating this into some projects. I've got a quick question about programming the 8051 mp: you say the flashed program you include is capable of limited reprogramming using Bluegiga's "dfutool.exe" - can I use this to sample a signal from a pin, do some basic math computations on it and then transmit that data?
I'm using BGLib, but I can't figure out how to create an uint8array in the Arduino sketch.
Specifically, I am trying to do a ble112.ble_cmd_attributes_write(25, 0, ????);
Jeff or anyone have any guidance? Thanks in advance.
I'm a little disappointed that after all the wait, the assembled version is already all sold out.
How long until a fresh batch will be ready?
Looking forward to the new board becoming available.
I plan to use it with an ArduIMU v3 (I think you're familiar with this IMU) and powering everthing with a LIR 2450 coin cell battery (3.6v 110mAH). I've been unsuccessfully searching far and wide for info on how I'd connect the battery, IMU and your board together. Very little documentation about ArduIMU (particularly the pins on sides).
If it's not too much, could you provide some connection guidance (and a diagram would be great).
I see there are more than 100 people waiting for the assembled board... do you have an idea about how many will be available in february?
How much will the new boards cost? And if we order the PCB alone, will it bring the required components minus the BLE112 module? Or will we have to find those components ourselves?
Hi, this is a great project and product! How many assembled modules and boards will be available on 1/25 for purchase? Thanks
So when you say January 25 as an estimate for the new boards, would that be the date when they would become available for purchase?
Is there any reason I shouldn't be able to carefully solder wires to pins 2-5, and 29-30 and hand-connect to a BLE112? I don't see anything else in the schematic, but even after carefully checking the connections, cc-debugger still shows a red light.
Very excited by your product - hope to have a couple in hand for an upcoming hack-a-thon in early Feb. Thanks for building it!
Hi Jeff, it is now January 18th, are the boards available for order? (I live in Hong Kong).
Hi Jeff, thanks for your quick reply. Hopefully everything goes well :-) Is it possible to ship the unit to Taiwan? any special documents we have to prepare to pass the Custom?
Hey Jeff, on the new board that has the cc debugger connector. Are you using the 1.27mm pitch male connector on the board? If so what is your source for the part and part number?
BTW that is great about new board we may get that.
I'm anxious to buy a board once they're available. Quick question, can it be powered with a 3.0 volt 240mAh coin cell battery like a CR2032? Any idea what the power consumption is when constantly transmitting? Also, I hope to share the power source with an ArduIMU and have it send out sensor readings from the IMU - think that would work?
I ordered an assembled breakout, it was sent at 6th of November, but never delivered. The last scan is from 14th of November. I wrote several emails to inmojo support, but never got a response. I'm sure it will not be delivered and is lost :-(
What we'll do? Refund? Send another one?
I'm curious how you wired this up to your arduino since all of the I/O pins on this board are 3.3 volts while the arduino are 5V. Did you use a level shifter between them like a 74HC4050 ?
Is the firmware bgscript you preload available anywhere if we wan to modify/enhance and reprogram?
I would love to see an simple example project. Mainly, I'm interested how hard it would be to create a "clicker": To just put a simple button on this thing and register the push of the button in Android or iOS.
As I'm a software developer and do not know much about hardware development this limits me in playing with this stuff :(
Is it possible to give an estimation when the breakout boards will be available if I'll order some PCB only or assembled now?
Thanks in advance & kind regards
Has anyone been able to program the module using an Arduino or similar instead of the CC-Debugger? I know there are several projects for flashing AVR MCUs by bit-banging, and as wondering if I could possibly save $50. Thanks-
I've got a CC debugger, but am puzzled by what firmware needs to be downloaded to the module in order to then be able to download custom BGscripts. Anyone know what file I should be looking for?
Thanks a lot,
