The BT820 is a packaged USB Dongle version of the BT800 module which allows OEM's 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.

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 OEM's to accelerate their development time for leveraging either Classic Bluetooth or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), or Bluetooth Smart technology, into their operating system based devices.

The BT820 has a tiny footprint as small as 16 mm x 43 mm, yet output power at 8dBm, making these modules ideal for applications where designers need both performance and minimum size.

The dongle presents a Bluetooth standard HCI interface and has native support for Windows and Linux Bluetooth software stacks. All BT800 series devices are fully qualified as a Bluetooth Subsystem. This 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 engineered to provide for excellent RF performance with integrated antenna and additional band pass filters to further reduce the regulatory and testing requirements for OEMs and ensures a hassle free development cycle.. As an additional benefit of the BT820, Laird has implemented CSR's HID (Human Interface Device) Proxy Mode enabling out of the box HID connectivity for pointing devices and / or keyboard functionality, requiring zero host device software or configuration.
