With the comprehensive development of the IoT in the fields of smart industry, smart home, electronics and so on, there are more and more IoT new products adopting short-range wireless communication technology such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
What are the features of a good BLE module?
1. Low power consumption
After Bluetooth SIG announced BLE specification at the version of 4.0 for the first time, BLE specification has been going through from v4.0 to v5.1, the power consumption efficiency of BLE v5.x is much higher than other versions. (For BLE 5.1 module, we recommend FSC-BT690 BLE 5.1 module, it adopt Dialog DA14531 chipset)
2. AT commands programmable, support UART interface, which make the module easy to use
3. Supports multiple connections (We recommend FSC-BT630 BLE 5.0 module which also adopts nRF52832 chipset and utilizes small package size)
4. Ultra-small size (FSC-BT690 Dialog DA14531 BLE 5.1 module’s size is: 5.0mm x 5.4mm x 1.2mm)
5. High data rate
BLE v5.x is x2 faster than BLE v4.x, if you need high data rate BLE module for your project, get a BLE v5.x module (e.g. FSC-BT616) which supports the High Speed feature of BLE v5.0
6. Supports advanced broadcast protocols (e.g. iBeacon, Eddystone)
