The NINA-B3 series from u-blox are stand-alone Bluetooth 5 low energy modules based on the Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52840 chip. Featuring Bluetooth low energy long range connectivity, high data transfer rates and supporting Bluetooth mesh and 802.15.4, NINA-B3 caters to applications in smart buildings, smart cities, and the Industry 4.0, including smart lighting systems, industrial sensor networks, asset tracking solutions, and building automation systems.
NINA-B3 is available with a highly sensitive internal antenna specifically designed for the module’s small form factor, achieving optimal radio range performance even in small end product designs. Pin compatibility with the other u-blox NINA short-range communication modules limits design effort for product developers developing multiple device variants, e.g. featuring only Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity. Customers can expect to get their hands on first samples by Q1 2018.
