Any plans for Bluetooth 5?

  • Hi,
    Are there any plans to integrate Bluetooth 5 in a new board? For example, TI and Nordic both have BT 5 MCUs on the market with really impressive link budgets (~1.5km LoS) while still maintaining low power consumption. There would be immense value in integrating such an MCU on the FiPy (or maybe a WiPy).

    No, sadly the ESP32 microcontroller we use will not support Bluetooth 5.
