Next-generation Bluetooth Low Energy chip

28 June 2017

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is set to accelerate the spread of connected smart objects throughout homes, industry, gaming, healthcare and more.

Built into all new mobile phones, tablets and computers, Bluetooth Low Energy wireless technology enables consumers to interact with any BLE-enabled object from their own devices. Similarly, service providers can conveniently connect assets to the Cloud for service delivery and data collection.

ST sees important opportunities for BLE-connected applications that are simple, functionally focused, and can operate on a button cell for months or years. The new BlueNRG-2 chip meets all these needs with its extremely power-efficient programmable processor and low power features including a frugal standby mode.

The high RF signal strength saves system power by ensuring reliable wireless communication, and generous on-chip memory for BLE software and its application code simplifies system design by saving external memory components. BlueNRG-2 is Bluetooth 5.0-certified, which ensures interoperability with the latest generation of smartphones, and supports enhanced features such as state-of-the-art security, privacy, and extended packet length for faster data transfer.
