BlueBeacon Card is a badge-like battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon, based on new-generation BLE chip Nordic nRF52. It simultaneously supports multiple
technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa.
Thanks to its ultra-slim form-factor, BlueBeacon Card can be worn as an identification badge for personnel or hung on racks or products. By using the internal accelerometer,
it can be configured to automatically enter into low-power mode for battery savings. A button and two leds (managed via GATT) allows for a richer user interface.
BlueBeacon Card is waterproof and powered by a thin non-replaceable lithium battery that guarantees a long operating life. Additionally, it can integrate an optional NFC NTAG2 tag.

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. BlueBeacon devices uses iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet
Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications
Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines BLE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used
individually or in combinations. BlueBeacon Mini is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.
The Physical Web is an open approach, developed by Google, to enable quick and seamless web-based interactions with physical objects and locations.
The Physical Web uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) because of its ubiquity on mobile devices, and is based on Eddystone-URL format.
BlueBeacon Board is compatible with Quuppa Intelligent Locating System, a powerful technology platform for novel location based services and applications. It enables real-time tracking of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
smart tags and devices, with accuracy even down to a few centimeters.
