Fanstel Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5 Module BT832X


Component Distributors is excited to announce the Fanstel BT832X. The BT832X is a powerful, highly flexible, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module using the Nordic nRF52832 SoC and the Skyworks SKY66112-11, an RF Front-End-Module (PA/LNA).

Bluetooth 5 specifications allow reducing bandwidth to achieve up to 4X range while maintaining similar power requirements. Line of sight range between two BT832Xs is measured at 1250 meters for 1Mbps data rate. BT832Xs achieve longer range by superior antenna circuit and an external power amplifier, not by reducing bandwidth.
