The NORA-B10 Series from u-blox are Standalone Bluetooth 5.2 Low Energy Modules with an integrated MCU for industrial automation, medical and healthcare, smart cities, and smart buildings. These modules are built on the Nordic nRF5340 chip and have dual Arm® Cortex®-M33 processor cores with integrated flash and RAM memory. The first core is for high-performance applications clocked at either 128 or 64 MHz. The second core is clocked at 64 MHz and optimized for efficiency and low power. Applications on the first core can run without being interrupted by network activity on the second, which is advantageous for time-critical applications where a quick response is needed. They support Bluetooth 5.2 features such as Angle-of-Arrival and Angle-of-Departure, Bluetooth long-range and low energy audio along with NFC and IEEE 802.15.4 with Thread and Zigbee.
This BLE Module has a range of wired interfaces such as UART, QSPI, SPI, I2C, USB, QDEC, PDM, PWM and ADC. The modules come with an internal PCB antenna that provides a robust low-profile solution with high performance and extensive range. They measure 10.4 x 14.3 x 1.8 mm and are suitable for applications such as connected tools, advanced and medical wearables, smart lighting, asset tracking, indoor location, low power sensors, as well as wireless-connected and configurable equipment.
