Fujitsu Releases Miniature Bluetooth® Smart Module for IoT Solutions

28 - 10 - 2015
Fujitsu Component America, Inc. announces the availability of an ultra small Bluetooth® Smart module that is approximately 50 percent smaller than its predecessor, the MBH7BLZ02. With its combined compact size and low power consumption, the new module reduces the cost and time to develop even smaller and lighter battery-powered wireless devices capable of operating much longer than before. Fujitsu’s module, PN MBH7BLZ07, measures 11.5 x 7.9 x 1.7mm. It is based on the Nordic Semiconductor nRF51822 chipset (IC Rev. 3, S110 Ver. 8.0.0), which is built around a 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU with 256kB flash and 16kB RAM. With its industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degC, low 10.5mA power consumption (typical for 0dBm in Tx mode), and an embedded antenna, the FCC-approved module is well suited for wearable, Internet-enabled devices in healthcare, fitness, and consumer entertainment applications. The module contains Fujitsu’s unique data communication profile, which allows data communications without the need to develop profiles and software. Settings can be managed by a variety of simple, text-based control commands (UART) to facilitate integrating the module into new products. Alternatively, Fujitsu offers the module in a blank version (PN MBH7BLZ07-109033) without embedded firmware, which can utilize the extensive Nordic software library for application development, with full access to the onboard ARM® Cortex M0 CPU. Samples and evaluation kits are available now. For more information, see Where to Buy.
