Adafruit offers a new, combination WiFi + Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter. Its WiFi half can be used to make Internet of Things devices cable-free. Or, take advantage of the single-board Linux computer’s USB ports to add a low-cost, but highly reliable wireless link.
The Bluetooth side of this adapter can be used for BLE connectivity projects and devices. It’s ideal for if you only have a single USB port (a.k.a. Raspberry Pi A+ or BeagleBone) as there’s no need for a hub to add both types of wireless.
Drivers for Bluetooth modules are built into Windows 10+, so users do not need to install additional software or download anything. Just plug it in and let Windows auto-install the BT driver. This only takes a few minutes.
