Introduction to Bluetooth Low Energy with Nordic Semiconductor

 

Bluetooth Low Energy is a ubiquitous technology that provides interoperable wireless connectivity to battery-operated devices. Nordic Semiconductor are leaders in ultra-low power wireless technologies and have been instrumental in the development of the Bluetooth Low Energy standards.

4 billion devices with Bluetooth technology will ship this year alone!

Bluetooth Low Energy capability can be found in all modern mobile phones, tablets, laptops, smartwatches and fitness trackers, amongst numerous other types of devices.

In this webinar recording, you will learn about Bluetooth Low Energy technology and how it is evolving to meet the needs of emerging applications. With the latest adoptions, Bluetooth LE offers higher throughput, longer range and direction-finding capabilities. In addition, LE Audio is just around the corner and is set to introduce new and immersive audio experiences.

This webinar recording introduces the Bluetooth Low Energy wireless technology. Content:

  • Basics
  • Architecture
  • Topology and roles
  • Security
  • Throughput and range
  • Direction Finding
  • LE Audio

PDF slides for the webinar are available to download from Nordic DevZone.
