The Bluetooth-SoC can be accessed via UART interface and supports AT-Commands for setup. It supports full Bluetooth 4.0 standard and can be used for your Arduino or microcontroller to Android or iOS communication projects.
If you are in need of such a 4.0 BLE Bluetooth module, MCU can be set up, also can controlled by a remote Bluetooth device for setting, can transfer data, and can remotely control 10 PIO pins,so,the best choice is HM-10 bluetooth module.
Support Remote control mode, remote device can control PIO pin or modify settings by AT commander when Connected. (Such as Iphone4s/5 ipad, Note2 etc.)
Support Central and Peripheral mode switch, modify by AT commander.
