Description: This is a breakout for the BC127 Bluetooth Module. The BC127 is a highly flexible, low power, small form factor Bluetooth Version 4.0 Certified Audio module. This is an ideal module for developers who want to quickly and cost effectively integrate Bluetooth functionality into their products.
The BC127 Breakout board provides basic access to all the pins on the BC127 module, along with a six-pin serial header with the same pinout as the FTDI Basic boards, allowing it to connect to boards like the Arduino Pro, Pro Mini, and LilyPad. It also includes voltage regulation, serial data level shifting circuitry, and support for the built-in battery charge circuitry.

I bought this breakout bd to test the audio output. Without a headphone amplifier the 8670 cannot drive earphones. This was a cheap quick way to prove if a headphone amplifier was needed.

Good break out board for the bc127. It comes with melody v.5 you’ll want to update it to melody v.6
Also download coolterm for your serial monitor as the arduino serial monitor does not recognize carriage returns (it sends them but doesn’t interpret them)
I’m using a generic USB to serial contest for testing, works great.
All in all very convenient solution. Thanks a bunch for putting this together, it’s been a big help. Hit me up if you need help with it.
The rest of the board is exactly what I expected and required. I thought it would be cool to use the 4 broken-out CAP_SENSE pins to drive the playback functionality, but unfortunately BC says that’s not going to happen. Overall a very good BOB.
Edit: the sound quality coming off of this and the media info coming in as alerts is awesome. moving to 5 stars.
Would not recommend this. I purchased one of these for use with a very simple retrofit of an old 50’s radio. Hooked it up to a mono audio amplifier and 20W speaker, and heard a ton of high pitched whining, static, and clicks and pops. After doing everything I could to make sure it wasn’t some other problem (hooking up the amp and speaker to an aux input, checking and double-checking and triple-checking for ground loops, connecting to multiple phones) I confirmed it was the board. To Sparkfun’s credit, they sent me a warranty replacement, saying it was a defective board. But lo and behold, I wire up the replacement board and…. same problem. It’s a shame, because the BC127 chip is great and has lots of configurability, but the noise makes this unsuitable for anything other than basic audio projects.
Sorry to hear that the BC127 breakout did not function for your purposes. I’ve asked our support department to contact you to see if they can help you out with this issue.
