Bluetooth modules cover legacy and migration

Mouser Electronics is now stocking Laird Connectivity’s Vela IF820 Bluetooth 5.4 dual-mode modules. The products marry the benefits of Infineon Technologies’ low-power, high-performance AIROC CYW20820 silicon, hardware, software and other tools with Laird Connectivity’s robust, value-added application software, services certification and support capabilities.

The series offers a range of dual-mode, flexible modules, adapters and development kits that enable a single module to cover legacy Classic Bluetooth and migration to Bluetooth LE v5.4 with a single part. The integrated solution helps drive down overall cost, design complexity and risk while increasing design flexibility and accelerating time-to-market for dual-mode Bluetooth IoT designs.

Three hardware options are offered: a 9.3 by 12.5 by 2.15mm module with integrated chip antenna; a 7.5 by 7.5 by 2.15mm with MHF4 connector for an external antenna; and a USB adapter option. The modules are specified at an industrial temperature range of -40 to 85°C, and host applications include home automation, asset tracking devices, secure medical peripherals and industrial IoT sensor networks.
