We have a product that uses a proprietary radio link to a PC.
We would like to redesign it using a radio standard such as
Bluetooth. The data rate is rather high (500-800 kbps),
so BLE 4.2 and lower would not be fast enough. BLE
5.0 might be OK, but it isn't here yet. We are looking at a
BR+EDR+BLE solution so we could use EDR for now and
maybe upgrade to BLE 5.0 in the future.
Would the CYW20706UA2KFFB4G be upgradable to 5.0
in the future or would it require different hardware? How long
is the CYW20706UA2KFFB4G likely to be supported before it
becomes obsolete? What is the difference between the
CYW20706UA2KFFB4G and the CYW20706UA2KFFB4GT?
Do you have other modules that would support EDR now and
BLE 5.0 in the future?

The CYW20719 should be perfectly suit your requirements. Which is BT5.0 compliance: BR+EDR(3Mbps)+BLE5.0-2Mbps. And also cypress will have module which is based on CYW20719.
But the CYW20719 is not support in community right now. You can contact local cypress distributor for further requirements: Cypress Franchised Distributors | Cypress Semiconductor
