CC2540: Connect without dongle (Using laptop BLE chipset)

Part Number: CC2540
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADS1293

Please let me know what I need to do to remove the dongle cc2540 from my laptop and rely instead on my ble on my laptop!

I saw this is possible with the apple tablet in your reference design video for the ads1293.

Thank you e2e.

  • Hi,

    If your PC has a BLE chip, then you should be able to scan for Bluetooth devices and connect to any devices that are allowing a connection. However, your OS may limit you in terms of what they allow you to do when in a BLE connection or even which devices they allow a connection to form with. For more information, please refer to the documentation available in your preferred operating system.

    The following BLE example relies on connecting to a PC and may be helpful:
