Makers, hobbyists and developers that are in the need for a Bluetooth LE Board, might be interested in a new board designed by Dangerous Things called the Switcheroo.
Switcheroo is a tiny Bluetooth LE board that offers Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy connectivity, watch the video below to learn more about its features from its creators.
The Bluetooth LE Board project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $16,500 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
“Switcheroo is a tiny Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy platform you can use to upgrade existing products to enable direct smartphone control, or develop your own remote control projects. The Switcheroo can do things like control toys, unlock doors, start your car, turn on your lights, control your heat, and much more!
The Switcheroo has 4 opto-isolated outputs that can switch DC voltages from 2v to 24v DC and up to 150mA of current. For higher current applications you can connect relays or solid state switching ICs to Switcheroo and do even more!
Switcheroo can operate on a single CR2032 coin cell battery for up to a year (depending on usage), or an optional 3.3v regulator can be soldered in place of the battery clip. With the regulator installed, unregulated DC power between 4v and 20v can be used, which makes upgrading existing devices and products easy – Switcheroo can just sip a tiny bit of power from that device’s existing battery pack or power source.”
