Coded PHYs + Advertising Coding Selection = Superior Bluetooth® Range

Bluetooth® v5.0 introduced LE Coded PHYs to extend the original range of the 1M PHY through the use of error correction techniques (FEC) and pattern mapping. Remarkably, Coded PHYs boosted the range of Bluetooth® LE without increasing radio transmit power, but the tradeoff was a reduction in protocol data rate, or raw throughput, since the coding schemes in Coded PHYs increase the number of symbols per bit used for communication.
