Thanks to this high data rate, the dongle is suited for use as a transmitter and re-ceiver adapter for wireless industrial and medical systems. Its integrated Bluetooth stack supports concurrent operation of classical Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy. As a result, the SE Skipper UBT21-1 can also be used as a local Bluetooth Smart Ready gateway for the Internet of Things without using the Bluetooth stack of the operating system. Using a unique multiplex protocol (EDM), SE Skipper UBT21-1 can simultaneously manage up to seven individual Bluetooth links independent of the operating system and external radio drivers.

As an additional advantage for device manufacturers and dongle users, protocol processing and configuration storage are handled within the SE Skipper UBT21-1 device. For this purpose, SE Skipper UBT21-1 provides graphic, Windows-based configuration software “SPA Toolbox” and an application programming interface (API) which easily integrates into application-specific software programs. Once programmed for a customer’s specific requirements, no further user configuration is required. The computer to which the dongle is attached must only provide an uncommitted USB port. Suitable virtual COM port drivers (VCP) are available for all common operating systems.

Designed by SE Spezial-Electronic and manufactured in Europe, SE Skipper UBT21-1 is specified for ambient temperatures from -30°C to +70°C and meets all EMC requirements per IEC 60601-1-1-2 (2007). It is certified as an end product for Europe (CE/R&TTE), Canada (IC), the U.S. (FCC), and Japan (TELEC). Approvals for Brazil (Anatel) and Australia (RCM) are pending.
