Packaged Bluetooth v4.0 USB Dongle
The BT820 is a packaged USB Dongle version of the BT800 module, that allows OEMs to plug the device into any Windows or Linux device that supports USB connectors and has an inbuilt Bluetooth® software stack in its operating system.
Leveraging the market-leading CSR 8510 chipset, the BT820 provides exceptionally low power consumption with outstanding range. Supporting the latest Bluetooth v4.0 Specification with EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), the Laird BT820 enables OEMs to accelerate their development time for leveraging either Classic Bluetooth or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), or Bluetooth Smart technology, into their operating system based devices.
The BT820 has a tiny footprint as small as 16 mm x 43 mm, yet output power at 8dBm, making these modules ideal for applications where designers need both performance and minimum size.
The dongle presents a Bluetooth standard HCI interface and have native support for Windows and Linux Bluetooth software stacks. All BT800 series devices are fully qualified as a Bluetooth Subsystem. This allows designers to integrate their existing pre-approved Bluetooth Host and Profile subsystem stacks to gain a Bluetooth END product approval for their products.
The BT820 is engineered to provide for excellent RF performance with integrated antenna and additional band pass filters to further reduce the regulatory and testing requirements for OEMs and ensures a hassle free development cycle.. As an additional benefit of the BT820, Laird has implemented CSR’s HID (Human Interface Device) Proxy Mode enabling out of the box HID connectivity for pointing devices and / or keyboard functionality, requiring zero host device software or configuration.
NOTE: The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has recently implemented changes to the End Product Listing (EPL) process. For more information about this update, please see the Bluetooth SIG Listing Process Fact Sheet and FAQs About the Updated Qualification and Listing Process.
The BT820 is certified from compliance to various CE, FCC, Industry Canada and Bluetooth Special Interest Group. The grants, approvals, and formal test reports associated with these certifications may be leveraged by Laird customers to achieve their required device certifications. The degree to which customers can leverage these Laird Certification items is dependent upon the regulatory agency, industry body, and the type of end device.
If any additional information or guidance is required, please contact the wireless certifications group via email.
The BT820 Bluetooth® Module has been tested for compliance to various CE and ETSI standards and specifications:
These formal test reports may be leveraged by mobile and portable device vendors as part of their self declaration to obtain the CE mark required by members of the European Union. ETSI/CE rules differ from those of the FCC and IC in that there is no provision for a modular approval. All approvals and certifications must exist at the device level rather than the module (radio) level.
The BT820 is fully compliant with Annex IV procedures in article 10.5 of R&TTE directive 99/5/EC.
The BT820 is fully compliant with European Union Directive 2003/95/EC or Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) as per our Declaration of Compliance. Click to view the Statement of Compliance to EU WEEE Directive and RoHS Directive.
Laird has received the following FCC grants for the BT820:
The above grants are Modular Approvals. Specific limitations are indicated on each grant.
Note: Laird Technologies test data may be leveraged by the device vendor to minimize the cost and time associated with the certification process.
The BT820 is certified to the Industry Canada (IC) RSS-210 standard. Certification is based on FCC certification testing, using the same antennas and transmit power and covering the same frequency bands.
The BT820 has received the Bluetooth SIG Qualification. For more information visit the Bluetooth Special Interest Group website, here.

2. Claims for Damages / Defective Products/Limitation of Liability
2.1. In the event that the Purchaser alleges that it has received defective or damaged Products, the Purchaser must inform the Company in writing within thirty (30) days of date of receipt of the Products, failing which all claims shall be deemed to be waived and the goods to have been accepted by the Purchaser. This written notice must include the part number of the Products, a description of the characteristics, which are not satisfactory, the MO number related to the batch, along with any further unique reference numbers that may appear on the packaging of the Products. Upon review and approval of the written notice by the Company, the Company will issue a Return Material Authorization number, which allows the Purchaser to return the defective goods. Upon receipt of the entire quantity of defective material, the Company will replace the Products on a like-for-like basis, or at the discretion of the Purchaser, will issue credit to the Purchaser’s account with the Company. The issuance of debit notes by the Purchaser while awaiting a potential credit on damaged or defective parts will not be accepted by the Company as having discharged the liability of the debt incurred on the issuance of the original invoice. Claims for shortage of delivery of Products will not be entertained unless a separate written notice is given to the Company within five (5) days of date of receipt of the Products. Where the terms of delivery are freight collect the Company cannot accept any liability for the actions of the Purchaser’s designated freight forwarder or carrier and as such no claim may be made against the Company for such delivery shortages. No claim by the Purchaser in respect of certain Products whether in one or more orders shall be accepted as a reason for cancellation of any other orders or the remainder of any order part of which is subject to the claim. Products supplied by the Company must be stored, carried, processed, installed or otherwise handled or dealt with in accordance with the Company’s published instructions, and in accordance with normal safety procedures for the handling of the Products and the Company shall not be liable for any loss, damage, injury or expense arising out of the Products or their condition if this is not done. The Company shall not be liable to replace any Products rejected only on the grounds of immaterial imperfections or variations in the manufacturing process.
2.2. Limitation of LiabilityIn the event of any claim against the Company in respect of any matter whatsoever, the Company’s liability (if any) shall be limited to the replacement of the Products sold in respect of which the liability arises if required and practicable, or the Purchaser shall be given a credit for the invoiced value of the order in respect of which the liability arises. The maximum amount of the Company’s liability in respect of Products sold shall therefore be the invoice value of such Products sold by the Company to the Purchaser.
