RFduino expands Raspberry Pi capabilities with Bluetooth® Smart


Los Angeles, CA – May 11, 2015 – RF Digital, the makers of the RFduino, the massively successful miniature wireless Arduino compatible module, are at it again: developers can now develop and program the RFduino directly from the Raspberry Pi, no PC needed. Developers can use the RFduino to easily connect Raspberry Pi to smartphones and tablets. Additionally, RFduino now supports several new Linux builds, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Mint and, of course, Rasbian, further empowering developers on their platform of choice.

“We continue to evolve the RFduino – it’s the most friendly and powerful Bluetooth® Smart module and ecosystem out there,” said Armen Kazanchian, CEO, RF Digital. “Raspberry Pi and Linux users can now join in with Windows and Mac users, and easily add Bluetooth® Smart to their projects. This speeds up design cycles and makes it easy and cost efficient to develop with Bluetooth® Smart, and will certainly bring more Internet of Things applications to life.”

The RFduino, a favorite of developers since its release in October 2013, has been adopted in a wide range of industrial and consumer products. Developers choose RFduino for its reliability and ease-of-use. Today’s news expands the options for developers and makes it easier for them to build innovative products for the Internet of Things.
