Laird BT800 Dual Mode Bluetooth 4.0 Module
Laird BT800 Dual Mode Bluetooth 4.0 Modules deliver 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 power consumption with outstanding range, and supports the latest Bluetooth v4.0 Specification with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate). The BT800 has a footprint as small as 8.5 x 13 mm, with output power at 8 dBm. The modules are designed to support a full speed USB interface plus GPIO, I²S, and PCM audio interfaces. The BT800 series is engineered to provide excellent RF performance with an integrated antenna and additional band pass filters to further reduce the regulatory and testing requirements for OEMs, ensuring a hassle free development cycle. As an additional benefit of the BT800 series, Laird has implemented CSR’s HID (Human Interface Device) Proxy Mode enabling out of the box HID connectivity for BLE pointing devices and / or BLE keyboard functionality, requiring zero host device software or configuration. The BT820 is a packaged dongle version of the BT800 module that allows OEMs to plug the device into any Windows or Linux device that supports USB connectors and an inbuilt Bluetooth software stack in its operating system.
