Overview

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) in a tiny package.

The BT800 series provides exceptionally low consumption with outstanding range. Supporting the latest Bluetooth v4.0 Specification with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), this Laird module enables OEMs to accelerate their development time for leveraging either Classic Bluetooth or BLE into their operating system-based devices.

Additionally, Laird has partnered with SEARAN for support of their ultra small, flexible ‘dotstack’ platform for embedded Cortex M3 and M4 implementations. 

Key Features

  • Bluetooth v4.0 - dual mode (Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy)
  • Compact footprint
  • Class 1 output - 8 dBm
  • USB, GPIO, I2S, and PCM
  • Industrial temperature range
  • Bluetooth SIG approvals
  • FCC, IC, CE, and Japan approvals

BT820 USB Dongle

The BT820 is a packaged USB Dongle version of the BT800 module, that allows OEMs to plug the device into any Windows or Linux device that supports USB connectors and has an inbuilt Bluetooth software stack in its operating system. Leveraging the market-leading CSR 8510 chipset, the BT820 provides exceptionally low power consumption with outstanding range. Supporting the latest Bluetooth v4.0 Specification with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), the Laird BT820 enables OEMs to accelerate their development time for leveraging either Classic Bluetooth or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) into their operating system based devices.
