Smart Arduino solution supports over-the-air updates
RedBear Company Blend is a Nordic nRF8001 Connectivity IC-based single board Bluetooth Smart Arduino solution that supports over-the-air updates on-the-fly from Bluetooth Smart Ready smartphones and tablets. Product eliminates the need for an extra, separate shielding board and is both smaller and up to half the cost of previous two-board Arduino Bluetooth Smart solutions. Product is simple and easy to use because it requires no additional wiring or soldering, or indeed potential troubleshooting if the shielding board doesn't function as desired.
