Ken Boak  has been working on a general purpose wireless breakout board – Fobble:

As can be seen from the above picture it contains a number of key features:

  • A resident RFduino  Bluetooth Low Energy Module with ARM Cortex M0 processor
  • 2 layer pcb 50 x 50 mm format- with extended Arduino headers pin-out
  • An X-Bee footprint – with 0.1″ breakout headers – to add your own wireless module
  • Two push button switches – only 1 populated shown
  • Footprint for RGB 0505 LED
  • Detachable power and programmer section
  • Detachable side panels – to make 38 x 32 mm BLE Key Fob
  • 8 pin header to accept 1.3″ OLED display
  • 20mm coin cell or flat Li Po cell power – on rear of Fob pcb
  • Micro – USB connector for recharging Li Po
  • Side Prototyping areas – perforated in 0.1″ matrix
  • 7 pin and 5 pin headers to accept any RFduino accessory shields – for development work
