    Any idea when Microchip will be releasing the firmware and/or updated docs?

    Can we download the latest firmware somewhere?

  • Product WRL-11777 | about 8 months ago

    Can you tell me where you find that? I’ve been through the Eval Kit User’s Guide, the Command Reference Guide, and the Datasheet for the module itself. I can’t find mention of S%?

    True, but that means nothing to me if I just continue to use the module they shipped me. If I were looking to make this into a sellable product, you might have a point.

    On the off chance that you do work for Microchip… Can you answer my question above about how to make the RN-52 automatically reconnect to previously paired devices at power-up?

    I was too eager to wait for the breakout board so i’ve essentially been recreating the portions of the development kit that I need (microphone and speaker interface) on a perf-board… I’m hoping to embed this interface in a vehicle and leave it so you won’t need to touch it once the device is paired to an Android phone (Nexus 4). I can pair just fine, but the next time I power up, I have to pair it again. Is there any way to make it remember the last pairing (or multiple pairings, for that matter… I thought it could do up to 8 or 10) and automagically connect to them on the next boot?

    As an alternative, this might be worth looking into. It looks like it’s the equivalent of the $170 RN-52-EK, but with a different BT module from Bolutek in China. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BC05-B-Demo-Version-Bluetooth-Audio-Module-HFP-A2DP-Stereo-Audio-Module-/121119407024

    Sigh. MOOT point. I’m a little disappointed in the cost as well. It would be great if we could buy the bare breakout board, that’s kind of what I hoped for. For $50 i’ll continue with ExpressPCB/SCH and just design my own board, and at the end of the day i’ll have three or four spares to work with or give to friends.

    FYI - I attached one of the RN-52 bare modules to a single-sided perf-board with double-sided foam tape, and then used fine-gauge magnet wire to attach the pins I needed to the traces on the perf-board. I haven’t completed development yet for my application, but so far there have been no RF issues despite no connections being made to the ground pins on the back side. In fact, i’m only using the grounds on pins 18 and 27 so far, and i’d only be using one of those if it weren’t more convenient for wiring to use two different ones.

    Has anyone created an ExpressPCB/ExpressSCH custom component for this yet? If so, could you post it somewhere and share a link? Thanks in advance!

No public wish lists :(
