Introducing Laird's upcoming Bluetooth 5 solution, the BL654 Series. This new solution builds upon the field-proven BL600 and BL652 series, reducing engineering burden and design risk, and speeding time-to-market when integrating Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Some of the key enhancements include:
- Up to four times the range and twice the data throughput
- NFC and Thread (802.15.4) integration
- BLE Mesh capabilities.
Based on Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 silicon, the BL654 ultra-small modules, development kits, and USB-packaged adapter provide a secure, robust, multi-wireless plus Cortex -M4F MCU platform for any product design. This solution delivers maximum development flexibility with programming options for the Nordic SDK in C, a simple, intuitive AT Command Set, as well as Laird’s smartBASIC event-driven programming environment.
The BL654 series of modules is scheduled to be released for mass production by end of June 2018, with engineering samples available now for select customers.
