BT680E, Long Range BLE 5.0 Module with u.FL
BT680E Series use Toshiba TC35680 SoCs. They are long range Bluetooth 5 modules supporting CODED PHY for range up to 900 meters at 125 kbps.
BT680F Bluetooth 5 Module
BT680FAT is preloaded with AT Command Codes for legacy products upgrading to Bluetooth 5 features and longer range.
BT680E with an u.FL connector for external antenna.
BT680T can operate in automobile temperature range with an external serial EEPROM.
Bluetooth 5 Specifications
Three key features of Bluetooth 5 specs for Bluetooth 5 products:
- 2X bandwidth to support 2Mbps data rate.
- 4X range to provide coverage of an entire home or building.
- 8X broadcasting message length from 31 bytes to 255 bytes.
Bluetooth SIG CORE_v5.0 LE CODED PHY uses FEC (Forward Error Correction) codes, 8 or 2 symbols to represent 1 data bit, and 1 M Symbols per second (MSps) transmission rate. Effectively, the maximum data rate is 125 kbps when 8 symbols are used. This FEC coding allows receivers to receive much weaker signals and to increase range by 4 times.
BT680E with Bluetooth mesh stacks can be used with available WiFi to BLE gateway or BLE 5 USB dongle to connect to an IoT Cloud server.
