    The BT832X is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 5 module with the longest range of the BT832 series. This BLE module is designed for mass deployment in mesh networks with an extended range of 1250 meters. No additional hardware or firmware is needed for this upgrade.

    The BT832X module is compatible with the Apple HomeKit applications and is the ideal BLE module for IoT applications. The module operates with Nordic nRF52832-QFAA SoC and includes an integrated PCB trace antenna, 512 KB flash, 64 KB RAM, and an embedded 2.4 GHz multi-protocol transceiver. The built-in Near-Field-Communication (NFC) can be used to easily and securely pair the module to other BLE devices, or to pass credentials from a smart phone or tablet to the module. In addition it has a built-in Temperature Sensor to monitor operating conditions.

    Application areas include:

    • Home and building automation
    • Beacons/Proximity
    • IoT (Internet of Things)
    • Connected appliances
    • Lighting products
    • Smart toys
    • Fitness/Sports
    • Wearable products
    • Interactive entertainment devices
