Laird’s BL652 contains the latest generation silicon

with Bluetooth 5 Low Energy capabilities and

groundbreaking ultra-low power performance.

Building on the expertise of the BL600 Series, the

BL652’s smaller form factor, class leading Nordic

nRF52 silicon, optimized low power schemes

and smartBASIC programming language provide

a secure, stable, hostless Bluetooth environment.

The BL652 introduces Bluetooth 5 and NFC (via

firmware v28.7.3.0 and later), bringing industrial

security and feature expansion to Laird’s proven

Bluetooth Low Energy modules. Let Laird’s

innovative BL652 series and decades of expertise

in Bluetooth module design speed your product to
