The RF Core offers full support for Bluetooth 5 low energy, including the high-sped 2-Mbps physical layer and the 500-kbps and 125-kbps long range PHYs (Coded PHY) through the TI provided Bluetooth 5 stack or through a high-level Bluetooth API. The Bluetooth 5 PHY and part of the controller are in radio and system ROM, providing significant savings in memory usage and more space available for applications.
The new high-speed mode allows data transfers up to 2 Mbps, twice the speed of Bluetooth 4.2 and five times the speed of Bluetooth 4.0, without increasing power consumption. In addition to faster speeds, this mode offers significant improvements for energy efficiency and wireless coexistence with reduced radio communication time.
Bluetooth 5 also enables unparalleled flexibility for adjustment of speed and range based on application needs, which capitalizes on the high-speed or long-range modes respectively. Data transfers are now possible at 2 Mbps, enabling development of applications using voice, audio, imaging, and data logging that were not previously an option using Bluetooth low energy. With high-speed mode, existing applications deliver faster responses, richer engagement, and longer battery life. Bluetooth 5 enables fast, reliable firmware updates.
