TWS Bluetooth Audio Receiver Board is a TWS enabled Bluetooth 4.2 audio receiver board. People can also use two of this board to build a wireless stereo speaker system. This tutorial will teach you how to pair them and set the module output.
Pair Two Receiver Boards
Hardware and Software required:
- Bluetooth Audio Receiver Board(TWS/Apt-X) x2
- 5 VDC power supply x2
- Audio amplifier system x 2
- If you pair 2 amplifier boards. User must remove the slave board Aux in Enable jumper before pairing 2 boards
- S1 – Long press 3s into pairing mode. Long press 6s clear the pairing info.
- S1+S2 – Long press 1s into TWS slave mode.
- S1+S3 – Long press 1s into TWS master mode.
- S2+S3 – Long press 1s disconnect TWS connection.
Step 1: Select one of the board as the master, the other one as the slave. Connect the master to your amplifier, and then power it. You will see the blue and red LEDs on the module blink alternately, Use your phone or PC (etc) to search for a new Bluetooth device. The module will appear as “BT Speaker” and then pair it.
Step 2: After pairing with the master, turn off the phone or the other music player’s Bluetooth. Now the red and the blue LEDs on the module will turn back to blink alternately. Then you can press the S1 and S2 keys simultaneously and release the button after hearing a short beep.
Step 3: Connect the slave to your amplifier, and then power it on. (Don’t power off the master board) When the blue and red LEDs on the slave blink alternately, press the S1 and S3 keys simultaneously and release the button after hearing a short beep. Wait a little while, when you see the master and slave blue LED blink intermittently, then the two boards have entered the TWS mode.
Step 4: Turn on the phone’s Bluetooth, re-power that two bluetooth boards(Master and slave). The master will then automatically connect to the device on which it was paired. Now you can play music, the master and the slave will have music output.
How to Set the module Mono/Stereo output

Step 2: Connect TC2050-IDC-NL’s connector to AudioB plus programming port. You need to locate the single steel alignment pin of the connector into the single hole of the PCB footprint, then press down softly to engage the spring-pin contacts. Make sure the first 6 pins have a good contact with the corresponding pads. Then the blue led and red led will blink alternately.
Step 3: Make sure the connection is fine, then open CSRA64xxx Configuration Tool. Choose “CSRA64215 A11” and “USB SPI(180063)” on the top left, then click “Read Device”.
