Laird claims reliable Bluetooth connectivity for the IoT at a fraction of the size. 

Laird Connectivity says that it’s latest range of Nordic nRF52833-based modules specifically targets OEMs where space is constrained in their designs while the miniaturized BL653μ series also enables Industrial OEMs to implement longer range Bluetooth LE applications in the harshest operating environments. Laird suggests that this series of secure, low power microcontroller modules with multi wireless capabilities is the future of wireless Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity, as small as 6.3 x 5.6 mm. 

Powered by Nordic’s nRF52833 WLCSP silicon, the small form factor BL653μ modules provide Bluetooth Low Energy and a Cortex -M4F CPU for any OEM’s product design. The BL653μ provides development flexibility with programming options for the Nordic SDK or Zephyr RTOS, a simple, intuitive AT command set, as well as Laird Connectivity’s own smartBASIC environment.

The BL653μ series supports key nRF52833 hardware features and capabilities including USB access, up to +8 dBm transmit power, up to 5.5V supply considerations, and NFC tag (type 2 / 4) implementation. Laird also believes that complete regulatory certifications enable faster time to market and reduced development risk.
