Atmel Bluetooth Low Energy Solutions

» Learn more

The Atmel® SmartConnect Bluetooth® solutions is a family of self-contained, low-power, and certified modules bringing Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity to any embedded design. These integrated modules offer the ideal solutions for designers seeking to develop wearable or IoT devices without any Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth Smart), IP Stack or RF experience. SmartConnect BLE opens the door of the Internet of Things to the vast array of battery-powered devices and applications requiring the integration of BLE connectivity without compromising on cost and power consumption.

Target Applications

  • Battery-powered sensor devices
  • Wearables
  • Smart appliances
  • Health and fitness trackers
  • Home automation
  • Consumer electronics
  • Retail beacons
  • Asset tracking devices

Ultra-Low Power

Atmel’s BLE SoC and MCUs are optimized for battery-powered applications with a wide 1.8V to 4.3V voltage range and sub-1µA sleep current and sub-3mA / 4mA TX/RX current (@3.6V, 0dBm Pout). This results in ultra-low-power BLE advertising and connection events, with the industry’s lowest electric charge drawn from the battery for each event. This extends battery life by 2 to 4x compared to existing BLE solutions.

Ultra-Small Form Factor

Atmel’s BLE SoC, MCU and modules are highly integrated and require few to no external components (module).

Atmel offers the smallest BLE 4.1 SoC available in the market, measuring only 2.26x2.14 mm.


BLE4.1 link controller SoC is a perfect companion to any Atmel host MCU for adding BLE connectivity or it’s ARM® Cortex®-M0 when combined with external memory can function as a standalone MCU with embedded BLE

ARM Cortex-M0 MCU with 128KB of RAM, 256KB of Flash and complete BLE4.1 protocol stack embedded in ROM
