BLE Advertising channels | BLE Data channels list

This page mentions List of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) channels. It covers BLE Advertising channels and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) Data channels.

• BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) is the latest in the series of bluetooth standards published by Bluetooth SIG. The latest bluetooth version is 5.1 released after v4.2 and v5.0.
• The devices (Initiator i.e. master and Advertiser i.e. slave) communicates in point-to-point and broadcasts modes. using advertising channels and data channels.

Bluetooth Smart or BLE frequency channels

The figure-1 depicts list of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) channels. Bluetooth operates in 2.4 GHz ISM Band. It spans from 2400 to 2483.5 MHz. BLE channels are spaced 1 MHz. Let us understand use or function of these BLE channels and their frequency values.

BLE Advertising channels

• It carry broadcast data for applications.
• It helps to discover slaves in order to connect with them.
• BLE devices use any of the following BLE advertising channels for transmission/reception of advertising packets of various types. These channels carry advertising channel PDUs.

BLE Channel Number Frequency Value
37 2402 MHz
38 2426 MHz
39 2480 MHz

BLE Data channels

• Once connection is established between master and slave, devices can send data to one another. This is achieved by exchanging data channel PDUs during scheduled connection events.
• Master and slave BLE devices use any of the following BLE data channels for the transmission/reception.
