ThinkPad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate (BDC-2)

This is a USB Bluetooth Adapter that is installed in a CDC slot in the screen assembly.


  • Chipset: Broadcom
  • USB VID/PID: 0A5C:2110

Linux driver

One can enable Bluetooth by pressing Fn-F5, or running this command:

echo "enable" > /proc/acpi/ibm/bluetooth

The ibm_acpi kernel module must be loaded or compiled into the kernel for this to work.

(Verified on a ThinkPad Z60m and Z61t.)

On the T61 and Z61, the Wireless' kill-radio switch disables both WiFi and Bluetooth.
