Mouser Electronics ships BlueNRG-2 Bluetooth low energy SoC Andy Pratt October 5, 2017 Comms / Bluetooth / Wireless, ICs & Semiconductors Distributor, Mouser Electronics now stocks the BlueNRG-2 SoC from STMicroelectronics. The BlueNRG-2 SoC is a power-efficient, programmable processor with low-power features, high RF signal strength, and what Mouser describes as generous on-chip memory for Bluetooth low energy software and application code. The BlueNRG-2 is Bluetooth 4.2-compliant and Bluetooth 5.0-certified, which ensures interoperability with the latest generation of smartphones, notes Mouser. It also supports enhanced features such as security, privacy, and extended packet length for faster data transfer. The BlueNRG-2 wireless SoC offers the same RF performance as STMicroelectronics’ BlueNRG radio, but improves sleep mode current consumption for longer application battery lifetime. The SoC features a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M0 processor and a Bluetooth low energy radio for energy efficiency and strong radio performance. The BlueNRG-2 also includes 256kbytes of on-chip flash memory, allowing designers to embed both the Bluetooth low energy stack and the application code. There is also 24kbytes of static RAM with retention (in two 12-kbyte banks), and SPI, UART, I2C standard communication interface peripherals. The BlueNRG-2 SoC’s low power design include support for fast wake-up and sleep transitions, and a standby current of just 500-nanoA. In addition to the device’s link budget up to 96dB, RF-output power is boosted to +8dBm to ensure clear and reliable communication for optimum efficiency, even in noisy environments, says Mouser. The BlueNRG-2 SoC is compliant with a range of RF regulations, including ETSI EN 300 328, EN 300 440, FCC CFR47 Part 15, and ARIB STD-T66. Mouser also offers the STEVAL-IDB008V1 evaluation platform, which includes an onboard BlueNRG-2 SoC with an accelerometer, gyroscope, MEMS pressure and temperature sensor, and debug connector. Used in conjunction with the fully featured STSW-BLUENRG1-DK software development kit (SDK), the evaluation board’s three power options help engineers develop a wide range of applications, including wearables, retail beacons, keyless entry systems, smart remote controllers, asset trackers, and industrial and medical monitors. http://www.mouser.com WEARTECHDESIGN.COM – Latest News/Advice on Technology for Wearable Devices Weartechdesign is unlike any other website currently serving the technology for wearable devices.
