Bluetooth with the ATM18

The Vikings Are Coming!

Bluetooth with the ATM18
Since its introduction in 2001, Bluetooth has developed into an essential standard for wireless links between devices. Using an inexpensive serial module, we can add Bluetooth functionality to our ATM18 board. Naturally, the example software written in C can also be adapted for use with other ATmega boards.
