BLE is the choice for short-range, low-power wireless connectivity

Bluetooth Smart device shipments will grow from 165M devices in 2014 to 1.2B devices in 2018 for a 64% CAGR

Bluetooth Smart and Bluetooth Smart Ready-certified products more than doubled in 2014 vs. all prior years combined


61% of all Bluetooth Smart devices introduced in 2014 used BLE Modules


Customers prefer BLE modules because they can:

Shorten the design cycle by eliminating the need for complicated RF hardware design

Enable faster time-to-market and lower R&D investment by eliminating Bluetooth certification and qualification processes

Reduce manufacturing costs, including capital expenses such as Bluetooth SIG-qualified testers


Integrated, fully certified modules are driving the broad market adoption of BLE
