BL653 Series Bluetooth 5.1 + 802.15.4 + NFC Module

Under Development

Overview

In Development: Engineering samples of modules and DVKs available, pre-launch

Laird Connectivity’s new BL653 series enables Industrial OEMs to robustly implement longer range BLE applications in the harshest operating environments. This series of secure low power, microcontroller modules with multi wireless capabilities is the future of wireless Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity.

Powered by Nordic’s nRF52833 silicon, the small form factor BL653 modules and DVKs provide for a secure, robust BLE and Cortex -M4F CPU for any OEM’s product design. The BL653 provides you with maximum development flexibility with programming options for the Nordic SDK or Zephyr RTOS, a simple, intuitive AT command set, as well as Laird Connectivity’s own smartBASIC environment.

The BL653 series brings out all nRF52833 hardware features and capabilities including USB access, up to +8 dBm transmit power up to 5.5V supply considerations, and NFC tag (type 2 / 4) implementation. Complete regulatory certifications enable faster time to market and reduced development risk completes Laird Connectivity’s simplification of your next Bluetooth design!
