Grove Serial Bluetooth

Grove - Serial Bluetooth is an easy to use module compatible with the existing Grove Base Shield, and designed for transparent wireless serial connection setup. The serial port Bluetooth module is fully qualified Bluetooth V2.0+EDR(Enhanced Data Rate) 2Mbps Modulation with complete 2.4GHz radio transceiver and baseband. It uses CSR Bluecore 04-External single chip Bluetooth system with CMOS technology and with AFH(Adaptive Frequency Hopping Feature). It has the smallest footprint of 12.7mm x 27mm. Hope it will simplify your overall design/development cycle.



  • Operating Voltage: 5.0VDC

  • Data Rate: 2Mbps

  • RF Transmit Power (Max): +4dBm

  • Sensitivity: -80dBm

  • Fully Qualified Bluetooth V2.0+EDR 3Mbps Modulation

  • Selectable baud rate

  • Auto-reconnect in 30 min when disconnected as a result of beyond the range of connection


In this library we packed are two demos for your project to work in Master mode and Slave mode. Two Bluetooth modules work as shown below:

Connect the module to D6 Port of Grove - Base Shield :

Install the library in the "Resources" section. If you want to run the project in Master mode, find the demo by the path: File - Examples - Bluetooth_demo_code - Master. And you can find the demo for Slave mode in the same path.

When the Grove - Serial Bluetooth module is in pairing status, the green and red LED links in interval. If connection succeeds, the green LED will blink every 2s. If connection fails, the red LED will blink every 0.5s.



Commands to change default configuration

1.Set working MODE


Note: \r\n is necessary for operation and the value of are 0x0D 0x0A in Hex. \r and \n represent carriage-return and line-feed(or next line),


Supported baudrate:9600,19200,38400,57600,115200,230400,460800.

3.Set Device NAME


4.Auto-connect the last paired device on power


5.Permit Paired device to connect me




7.Delete PINCODE(input PINCODE by MCU)


8.Read local ADDRESS CODE


9.Auto-reconnecting when master device is beyond the valid range (slave device will auto-reconnect in 30 min when it is beyond the valid range)


Commands for Normal Operation


a) Master


b) Slave


When +INQ=1 command is successful, the red and green LEDS blink alternatively.

2.Bluetooth module returns inquiring result

Serial Bluetooth device with the address “aa,bb,cc,dd,ee,ff” and the name “name” is inquired

3.Connect device


4.Bluetooth module requests inputting PINCODE



Example: RTPIN=0000

6.Disconnect device Pulling PIO0 high will disconnect current working Bluetooth device.

7.Return status \r\n+BTSTA:xx\r\n xx status:

  • 0 - Initializing

  • 1 - Ready

  • 2 - Inquiring

  • 3 - Connecting

  • 4 - Connected

(Note: This is not a command, but the information returned from the module after every command)
