BT830 - Bluetooth v4.0 Dual-Mode UART HCI module

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

Leveraging the market-leading CSR 8811 chipset, the BT830 series provides exceptionally low power consumption with outstanding range. Supporting the latest Bluetooth v4.0 Specification with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), the Laird BT830 series enables OEMs to accelerate their development time for leveraging either Classic Bluetooth or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) into their operating system-based devices.

These modules present an HCI interface and have native support for Embedded Windows and Linux Bluetooth software stacks. All BT830 series devices are fully qualified by the Bluetooth SIG as a Hardware Controller 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 BT830 series is engineered to provide excellent RF performance with options for an integrated antenna or for an external antenna via a trace pin. Additionally, the modules have on-board band pass filters to further reduce the regulatory and testing requirements for OEMs, ensuring a hassle-free development cycle.
