Laird Connectivity's Bluetooth 5 offerings are available as integrated and external modules in each series, as well as simple, easy-to-use development kits for the BL652 and BL654.
Nordic-Based Bluetooth 5 Modules
The BL651 is a cost-effective Bluetooth 5 offering for simple BLE applications. The BL651 series exposes all the capabilities of the Nordic nRF52810 silicon in a small, fully certified module with simple soldering castellation for easy prototyping and mass production manufacturing.
The BL652’s small form factor, class leading Nordic nRF52832 silicon, optimized low power schemes and smartBASIC programming language provides a secure, stable, hostless Bluetooth environment. The BL652 features Bluetooth 5 and NFC.
The BL654 provides maximum design flexibility and performance – a complete multi-protocol wireless offering with exceptional processing capability at a micro power budget. Powered by Nordic’s nRF52840 silicon, the BL654 provides BLE 5, NFC, Thread (802.15.4) and the widest range of configurable interfaces.
Building on Laird Connectivity’s expertise with Nordic from the BL654 series comes the most powerful yet - the BL654PA series! It provides OEMs with the maximum design flexibility and performance. A complete multi-protocol embedded wireless offering with exceptional processing capability, all with extended PA / LNA support for even greater range.
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.

|BT 5 FEATURE||ADVANTAGES||IMPROVEMENT||END USER EXAMPLES|
|LE Coded||Robust, reliable connections indoors and outdoors||4 x Range||Whole house/building coverage/outdoor e.g. Nordic Semi tests drone connectivity to 750m outdoor range|
|2 MPHY||Faster data transfer, reduced TX/RX time||2 x Speed||Lower latency, increased performance & faster data transfer for critical data e.g. swifter FW updates, download of logged sensor data|
|Advertising Extension (AE)||More data capacity in Connectionless Services||8 x Increase broadcast message capacity||Beacons & location/tracking services can be improved for greater data & information e.g. enhanced user experiences in facility tours|
The BL65x Series of modules and adapters makes Bluetooth 5 connectivity practical for a broad range of applications. Leverage increased bandwidth, longer range and battery life, faster data transfer, and more data capacity for an endless variety of use cases, such as medical peripherals, industrial equipment, smart heating and cooling, asset management, and more.
Medical, Wellness and Fitness Devices
The BL654 excels in mission-critical environments like hospitals, providing secure wireless connectivity for medical peripherals as well as wearables like smartwatches, pedometers, and more.
Industrial Sensor Networks
Sensor data can provide deep insights needed to maintain energy efficiency and productivity within factories and manufacturing plants. Monitor and control temperatures, energy usage, output, downtime vs. uptime, and other critical metrics.
Remote Security Monitoring
The BL654 excels with home security devices like door, window, and air-quality sensors. A BL654 powered home security system can broadcast its status regularly to a monitoring base. As many as eight peripherals can be connected to the system via Bluetooth Low Energy, creating a hub of smart BLE home sensors.
Securely and remotely take control over household devices like thermostats, refrigerators, dish washers, coffee makers and more. Monitor and automatically get notified about food stock levels, energy usage, and other statuses to create a more productive lifestyle.
