Overview

nRF8001 and nRF8002, Bluetooth low energy connectivity and proximity devices

nRF8001 is a single-chip Bluetooth Smart Connectivity IC. It integrates a fully compliant Bluetooth Smart v4.0 Radio, Link Layer, and Host stack and features a simple serial interface that supports a wide range of external application microcontrollers. It is specifically designed for Bluetooth Smart applications that operate in the Peripheral (Slave) role. 

The nRF8001 is available in a 32-pin 5 x 5mm QFN package. 

nRF8002 is a single-chip Bluetooth Smart peripheral device for proximity solutions. It can interface directly with user input and output devices such as buttons, LEDs, buzzers, or vibrators. nRF8002 is specifically designed for Bluetooth Smart applications that operate in the Peripheral (Slave) role.

The nRF8002 is available in a 32-pin 5 x 5mm QFN package.
