Murata Introduces Nordic-Based Bluetooth 5.0 LE Module

Murata has released 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 MBN52832 module (Order Number WSM-BL241-ADA-008) can be used to provide BLE connectivity between tablets, cell phones, cloud services, and other wireless devices. 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, the module 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. Click here to know more about the MBN52832 module.
