Insight SiP , a specialist in ultra-miniature RF modules, has introduced the ISP1807-LR module, touted as the first fully Bluetooth 5.0 long-range compliant RF module in a miniature SIP package. Housed in an 8 × 8 × 1-mm footprint, the miniature BLE module is based on Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52840 chip . It provides a Bluetooth 5 stack including long range, high throughput, advertising extensions, and improved coexistence along with IPv6 connectivity and mesh capabilities, making the module well-suited as a hub for IoT solutions.
The ISP1807-LR module targets IoT solutions that require complex applications, fast processing, and/or best-in-class power consumption, according to Insight SiP. These include advanced wearables, smart-home and industrial sensors, advanced remote controls, gaming controllers and beacons.
The BLE smart module also integrates 32-MHz/32-KHz crystals, RF antenna and matching circuit, and DC-DC converter, delivering power-saving efficiency. Thanks to an M4 floating-point processor, the ISP1807-LR can run fast and advanced calculations as well as support sophisticated applications with its 1-MB flash and 256-kB RAM memory. An embedded Arm Cryptocell-310 on-chip processor provides security and cryptographic functions, which reduces CPU processing time and energy consumption. A USB interface is also available.
