Bluetooth Low Energy Module with Integrated MEMS Motion and Environment Sensors

Telit has unveiled a new Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 4.2 standalone, single-mode module called BlueMod+S42M. The module has an embedded 3-axis accelerometer, temperature and humidity sensors. The cost-effective component is optimized for efficiency and simplicity in end-device design and manufacturing, delivering reliable Bluetooth Low Energy functionality with robust endpoint security, motion and environmental sensors and essential features that reduce development costs, bill of materials, and time to market.

Ideal for large scale projects, the BlueMod+S42M seamlessly expedites device design across a wide range of industrial and consumer applications areas. The embedded sensors are necessary for high-value, fragile asset tracking, and time or temperature-sensitive applications such as cold chain monitoring in the pharmaceutical and agriculture industries.

The release of the certified BlueMod+S42M complements the existing Telit portfolio of Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy modules and directly addresses the demand in the rapidly growing BLE-dependent market. A report released by IndustryARC Analysis, forecasts Bluetooth Low Energy enabled devices shipments to increase to 8.4 billion units by 2020 at a CAGR of 29%.

The BlueMod+S42M is a self-contained System-on-Chip (SoC) requiring no additional external supporting components. Full applications can be embedded on to the device. It is equipped with an on-board micro controller, integrated chip antenna, passive components, T°/Humidity sensor, and an accelerometer. Leveraging a rich subset of features from Telit's diverse family of BlueMod+Sx modules, including a GATT interface and Terminal I/O profile combination, the new BlueMod+S42M greatly simplifies and accelerates the development of applications.

In addition to efficient performance and low power consumption, BlueMod+S42M includes value-added features that further streamline development:

  • Bluetooth v4.2 Qualified Module
  • RED, SRCC Certified
  • Generic GATT Client and Server
  • LE Secure Connections
  • Configurable DIS (Device Information Service)
  • LE Data Length Extension
  • Terminal I/O for Easy Transparent Data Transfer (BLE- SPP like)
  • Embedded Sensors
  • Over-the-Air Updates
  • Sample Code for iOS and Android
  • WeChat Air Sync Protocol

Designers using the BlueMod+S42M will have access to comprehensive development and integration tools including evaluation and development kits.
