Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping EZ-BLE PRoC XR Bluetooth 4.2 modules and evaluation boards from Cypress Semiconductor. These Bluetooth low energy wireless modules offer an extended range of up to 400 meters bidirectional communication (or up to 450 meters in beacon-only mode) for a broad range of applications, including Internet of Things (IoT) and home and factory automation.
The Cypress EZ-BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip (PRoC) XR modules, available from Mouser Electronics, are 48 MHz 32-bit solutions with 256 KBytes of flash, 32 KBytes of SRAM, and a 12-bit SAR analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The modules feature two integrated crystals, up to 19 general-purpose inputs and outputs (GPIOs), and a programmable architecture that supports a number of peripheral functions (such as ADC, timers, counters, and PWM) and serial communication protocols (including I2C, UART, and SPI).
The EZ-BLE PRoC XR modules include a royalty-free Bluetooth low energy stack compatible with Bluetooth 4.2 and are available in two certified versions (CYBLE-212006-01 and CYBLE-202007-01) and an uncertified version (CYBLE-202013-11). The CYBLE-212006-01 includes an integrated trace antenna, while the CYBLE-202007-01 supports an external antenna via a u-FL connector.
The uncertified CYBLE-202013-11 supports an external antenna through a RF solder pad output and omits the RF shield.
