Our portfolio of Bluetooth Smart solutions includes both Network Processors and Application Processors in QFN-32 or WLCSP-34 miniaturized packages.
In particular, ST proprietary BlueCore technology – powered by the embedded ST Bluetooth low-energy master and slave certified stack - is featuring ultra-low power consumption together with an excellent RF link budget for a robust and reliable connectivity. The optimized radio front-end and the efficient power management architecture will extend battery life from months to years. The on-chip non-volatile memory enables an easy and quick firmware upgrade, including on-field over-the-air (OTA) upgradability.
ST modules for Bluetooth Smart and Bluetooth Classic – based on our device portfolio and equipped with on-board antenna, crystal and balun – offers a proven, robust and quick time-to-market solution. They come with the embedded Bluetooth stack to provide a BQE End Product qualified solution that is also fully RF, ETSI, IC and FCC certified, thus ensuring rapid integration into the final application and providing an easy-to-use solution.
Our ICs and module are supported by an extensive set of evaluation boards, software development kits, application notes and design guidelines – thus facilitating the adoption of Bluetooth wireless connectivity technology into a wide variety of application segments.
