BT800 - Bluetooth Classic & BLuetooth Low Energy Class 1 USB HCI Module

Compact (13 x 8.5mm) Class 1 Bluetooth USB HCI module offering support for both Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

The BT800 series of Class 1 USB HCI modules and packaged USB Dongle offer dual-mode Bluetooth v4.0, bringing support for Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for operating system backed devices.

The BT800 has a tiny footprint as small as 8.5 x 13mm, still offering output power at 8dBm, making these modules ideal for applications where designers need both performance and minimum size. For maximum flexibility in systems integration, the modules are designed to support a full speed USB interface plus GPIO and additionally I2S and PCM audio interfaces.

These modules present a Bluetooth standard HCI interface and have native support for Windows and Linux Bluetooth software stacks.  All BT800 series devices are fully qualified as a Bluetooth Subsystem. This also allows designers to integrate their existing pre-approved Bluetooth Host and Profile subsystem stacks to gain a Bluetooth END product approval for their products.

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  built-in Bluetooth software stack in its operating system.
