Fujitsu has announced a Bluetooth 4.2 module measuring 15.7 x 9.8 x 1.7 mm with integrated antenna based upon Nordic Semiconductor’s Bluetooth Smart SoC.
The nRF52832 QFN-package wireless module has been designed around a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M4F CPU with 512kB + 64kB RAM.
The embedded 2.4GHz transceiver supports Bluetooth Smart, ANT and proprietary 2.4 GHz protocol stack.
It is on air compatible with the nRF51 Series/modules. With 512kB Flash memory, 64kB RAM, the module can be considered as very powerful. Thirty GPIO pins are available.
NFC-tag support is included on chip and out-of-Band (OOB) pairing using NFC simplifies the process of authenticated pairing between two Bluetooth devices by exchanging authentication information over an NFC link. The module features two built-in Crystal oscillators 32MHz and 32.768kHz.
Fujitsu has a design team on antenna development able to match module capabilities with antenna quality.
The module will be FCC/IC/CE/Japan radio ACT certified.
