Nordic-based BLE module developed by Murata

Murata has announced the release of its Nordic-based BLE module. The latest MBN52832 device consists of Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52832 IC, a 32 MHz crystal for timing, and an on-board antenna. Additionally, it contains pins for an off-board omni-directional antenna and a NFC antenna. The module provides a Serial Port Interface (SPI) and UART interface to Nordic’s nRF52832 ARM Cortex M4 processor.

The WSM-BL241-ADA-008 module provides BLE connectivity between tablets, cell phones, cloud services, and other proprietary functions. Further, Nordic Semiconductor’s software developer's kit enables developers to create and run edge device applications that can monitor and capture diagnostic information for preventive maintenance. These features can be combined in apps for both iOS and Android devices that run BT v5.0.

With this functionality and small footprint, it is ideally suited for OEMs wanting to develop Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Target markets include Industrial IoT, energy, and home and office automation applications. Specific end products include asset tracking devices, medical insulin pumps, white goods, and other consumer goods that require connectivity.

“As the IoT rapidly rolls out, the underpinning technology is increasingly in demand - making it essential that companies launch their Bluetooth low energy IoT products quickly and cost effectively,” says Geir Langeland, Director of Sales & Marketing, Nordic Semiconductor. “Murata has taken full advantage of the nRF52832 SoC’s powerful features to offer a module that can be incorporated into compact wireless products by engineers with limited RF experience—decreasing time to market—yet can support the most demanding Bluetooth low energy IoT applications.”
