Our portfolio of Bluetooth Smart solutions includes both network and application processors in QFN-32 or WLCSP-34 miniaturized packages.
In particular, ST’s proprietary BlueCore technology – powered by the embedded ST Bluetooth low-energy master and slave certified stack - features ultra-low power consumption together with an excellent RF link budget for 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 in-the-field over-the-air (OTA) upgradability.
ST modules for Bluetooth Smart and Bluetooth Classic technologies – based on our device portfolio and equipped with on-board antenna, crystal and balun – offer 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 modules 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.
