Bluetooth 5 Module BT832, BT832A, BT832F, BT832AF Ver 2.04 Dec. 2017
BluNor BT832 Series is a powerful, highly flexible, ultra low power Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) modules using
Nordic nRF52 SoC. With an ARM CortexTM M4(F) MCU, up to 512KB flash, 64KB RAM, embedded 2.4GHz
multi-protocol transceiver, and an integrated PCB trace antenna. It allows faster time to market with reduced
development cost.
For applications needing limited number of IO pins, prototyping and production are easier using 16 castellated
pins. Additional 24 LGA (Land Grid Array) pins provide full access to 32 GPIOs of nRF52832.
Bluetooth 5 specifications allow reducing bandwidth to achieve up to 4X range while
maintaining similar power requirements. Line of sight range between two BT832Fs is
measured at 220 to 330 meters at 1Mbps data rate. Average of 12 measurements (rotate
one antenna by 30o each time) is 270 meters. BT832Fs achieve longer range by superior
antenna circuit and without an external power amplifier, not by reducing bandwidth.

2. Codes Development Using Nordic Tools
Development tools by Nordic and other third party development tools recommended by Nordic should be
used .
Easy, fast and safe code development
Nordic development environment for nRF52 offers a clean separation between application code development
and embedded protocol stacks. This means compile, link and run time dependencies with the embedded stack
and associated debugging challenges are removed. The Bluetooth low energy and ANT stack is a pre-compiled
binary, leaving application code to be compiled stand-alone. The embedded stack interface uses an
asynchronous and event driven model removing the need for RTOS frameworks.
Over-The-Air DFU
The nRF52 SoC is supported by an Over-The-Air Device Firmware Upgrade (OTA DFU) feature. This allows for
in the field updates of application software and SoftDevice.
SoftDevices
The Nordic protocol stacks are known as SoftDevices and complement the nRF52 Series SoCs. All nRF52
Series are programmable with software stacks from Nordic. This bring maximum flexibility to application
development and allows the latest stack version to be programmed into the SoC.
SoftDevices available from Nordic:
S132: Bluetooth low energy concurrent central/peripheral/observer/broadcaster stack.
Development Tools
Nordic Semiconductor provides a complete range of hardware and software development tools for the nRF52
Series devices. nRF52 DK board is recommended for firmware development.

Bluetooth 5 Module BT832, BT832A, BT832F, BT832AF Ver 2.04 Dec. 2017
The 32 bit ARM Cortex M4F MCU with hardware supports for DSP instructions and floating point operations,
code density and execution speed are higher than other Cortex M MCU. The Programmable Peripheral
Interconnect (PPI) system provides a 20-channel bus for direct and autonomous system peripheral
communication without CPU intervention. This brings predictable latency times for peripheral to peripheral
interaction and power saving benefits associated with leaving CPU idle. The device has 2 global power modes
ON/OFF, but all system blocks and peripherals have individual power management control which allows for an
automatic switching RUN/IDLE for system blocks based only on those required/not required to achieve
particular tasks.
The radio supports Bluetooth low energy and ANT. Output power is scalable from a maximum of +4dBm down
to -20 dBm in 4dB steps. Sensitivity is increased to -96 dBm to -89 dBm, depending on data rate. Sensitivity for
BLE is -96 dBm, and -92.5 dBm for ANT.
The NFC block supports NFC-A tags with proximity detection and Wake-on-field from low power mode. The
NFC enables Out-Of-Band (OOB) Bluetooth pairing of devices and thus greatly simplifying deployment.

Mechanical Drawings
The followings are mechanical drawings of BT832 and BT832F. The bottom portion of module is the main body
(size: 14.0 x 9.57mm) with electronic components and pins for connection to the host board. The top portion of
module is for integrated PCB trace antenna. BT832 and BT832F have identical main body. BT832F has a
larger antenna area to accommodate a higher performance antenna.
We recommend layout the host PCB with clearance for the larger antenna area of BT832F. If the ultra long
Bluetooth line of sight range of BT832F is not required, the lower cost BT832 can be installed.
Two types of pins are available to meet different application requirements.
16 castellated pins for application needing limited number of IOs. SMT equipment is not required for
soldering castellated pins.
24 LGA (Land Grid Array) pins to access all 32 GPIOs of nRF52832 when needed.

4. AT Commands
AT command firmware for BT832 Series module is available. Please email info@fanstel.com.
Brief description of AT commands
Each command line consists of a prefix, a body and a terminator.
All command lines begin with the prefix AT (ASCII 065, 084) or at (ASCII 097, 116).
The body is a string of characters in the ASCII range 032-255. Control characters other than <CR>
(carriage return; ASCII 013) and <BS> (back space; ASCII 008) in a command line are ignored.
The terminator is <CR>.
There is no distinction between upper-case and lower-case characters. A command line can have a
maximum length of 80 characters. It is automatically discarded if the input is longer. Corrections are
made
AT command is case-insensitive, following /r/n for end code.
The default baud rate is 9600 one stop bit and no parity
Command mode
When P0.03 of nRF52832 (pin 6 of BT832) is pulled high, it is set to AT command mode. In AT command
mode, the host processor communicates with the processor on BT832.

Bluetooth 5 Module BT832, BT832A, BT832F, BT832AF Ver 2.04 Dec. 2017
Suggestion for Battery Power Application
Standby current consumption is important for battery-powered product. We suggest adding a 32.768 kHz
crystal and 2 capacitors as shown in the upper left corner of the evaluation board schematics. The 32MHz main
clock won’t be active at idle state to save power.
Two inductors required for DCDC converter are inside BT832 module. You can enable DCDC to lower
power consumption.
6. Miscellaneous
Soldering Temperature-Time Profile for Re-Flow Soldering
Maximum number of cycles for re-flow is 2. No opposite side re-flow is allowed due to module weight.
