BlueSMiRF Gold maximum throughput

Post by AugS » Mon May 02, 2016 9:44 pm


Currently, I am using BlueSMiRF gold module at its default speed of 115,200bps without any issues on Arduino Uno, and
I am sending 14 bytes of data at every 2ms, so it is roughly around 70kbps.
Moving forward, I need to send exactly same amount of data at every 1ms, and that means data rate will be roughly 140kbps, which is over current data rate I am using. Question is, can I achieve 140kbps data transfer rate without using the two flow control pins by only setting the data rate to 230,400bps or similar?
Arduino side and a tablet side are both ready and verified to handle the data rate properly, but this Bluetooth module is still in question. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
