The BT800 series of Class 1, USB HCI modules and packaged USB Dongle, are Laird's first dual-mode Bluetooth v4.0 offerings, bringing support for classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) for operating system-backed devices.
Leveraging the market-leading CSR 8510 A10 chipset, the BT800 series provides exceptionally-low-power consumption with outstanding range. Supporting the latest Bluetooth v4.0 specification with enhanced data rate (EDR), the Laird BT800 series enables OEMs to accelerate their development time for leveraging either classic Bluetooth or BLE into their operating system-based devices.
The BT800 has a tiny footprint as small as 8.5 mm x 13 mm, yet output power at 8 dBm, making these modules ideal for applications where designers need both performance and minimum size. For maximum flexibility in systems integration, the modules are designed to support a full-speed USB interface plus GPIO, and additionally I2S and PCM audio interfaces.
