Adopted the Bluetooth specification 5 is 2 times faster and 4 times dalnoboynie
Organization Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) announced the adoption of Bluetooth standard 5. The main improvements over the previous version are increased range and speed plus advanced ability to broadcast messages and improved compatibility with other wireless technologies
For the first time about the release of the Bluetooth 5 it became known in June, and now is ready the final version, which suggests that in the nearest time will start the actual production of modules according to this standard.
In comparison with Bluetooth 4.2 version 5.0 has twice the range four times greater range and eight times greater broadcasting capacity, when used with chipsets with low power consumption. The maximum data transfer rate increased to 2 Mbit/s, but the possibility of its reduction to achieve greater broadcast range. In this case, the range is growing four times while maintaining the same level of energy consumption.
At a frequency of 2.4 GHz the problem of congestion is solved in the range of use of 255 octets instead of 31’s. of Course, Bluetooth 5 maintains backward compatibility with previous versions.
The specification is available for free download on the website of Bluetooth SIG. The emergence of devices that support Bluetooth 5, is expected within the next 2-6 months.
