Here are two different ways. One using a loop and string mid, the other using a Regexp. Both accomplish the same thing but I know a lot of people don't use/understand reg expressions

#include <Array.au3>

_ArrayDisplay(StringSplitBlocks("HelloWorld", 5), "StringSplitBlocks")
_ArrayDisplay(StringSplitBlocks2("ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ", 4), "StringSplitBlocks2")
_ArrayDisplay(StringSplitBlocks2(1234567890, 5), "StringSplitBlocks2")

Func StringSplitBlocks(Const $sString, Const $iBlockLength)
    Local $iStringLength = StringLen($sString)
    Local $aReturn[Ceiling($iStringLength / $iBlockLength)]
    Local $iCurIndex = 0

    For $i = 1 To $iStringLength Step $iBlockLength
        $aReturn[$iCurIndex] = StringMid($sString, $i, $iBlockLength)
        $iCurIndex += 1
    Return $aReturn
EndFunc   ;==>StringSplitBlocks

Func StringSplitBlocks2(Const $sString, Const $iBlockLength)
    Return StringRegExp($sString, ".{1," & $iBlockLength & "}", 3)
EndFunc   ;==>StringSplitBlocks2
