Reliability Test Report-Nordic nRF52833 Module (MDBT50Q Series)

What is Reliability Test? Why it is important?

Reliability test is the measure which helps to predict future behavior during a period of usage of the product, component or material. In combination with the measurement of relevant parameters and the use of appropriate test methods, reliability test helps to ensure the function and qualify of the product or feature can perform as designated.

Nowadays, Bluetooth module has become the most important key part within whole IoT system, It is not only controlling the connection but also computing. Raytac understood how critical the module need to perform in the system no matter commercial or industrial applications. Therefore, Raytac conduct the reliability testing plans for all series modules in order to ensure all the module‘s duration can meet design request.

The Reliability test is following JASO D001-94, Clause 5.12, and testings are under below 3 environments.

  1. Low temperature maintain test under -40℃ and last for 72hr
  2. High temperature maintain test under 105℃ and last for 72hr
  3. Thermal shock testing under -40℃~105℃

Raytac’s modules have been recorded No data loss over Total 252,979,200 bytes communication during the test. The perfect result proof not only IC but also all components in the module are qualified to work for you!

The detail of the test report can be found and download from Raytac’s Website Support Page.

ANT+ Module by Raytac

nRF51422 is the first solution supports both Bluetooth and ANT+, different from pure Bluetooth Low Energy BLE solution, nRF51822 released earlier. The edge cutting technology enable nRF51422 suporting multiprotocol concurrency capable for both Bluetooth Low Energy and ANT+. At the same time Nordic released SDK S310 for nRF51422 which is a combined peripheral BLE and ANT+ protocol stack that supports concurrent operation and all ANT+ features.

When Nordic moved to nRF52, started from nRF52832, the game changed. Even nF52832 still supports ANT+, the technology support such as SDK releasing or developers’ forums, has moved to direct supported by ANT+ Wireless (formerly Dynastream Innovations). Since then, Raytac suggest developers who is interested in ANT+ product still able to select the modules based on core specification and form factor, but access the firmware development support from ANT+ directly. Developers who are interested to know more about ANT+ is encouraged visit ANT+ FAQ support page first for more information about membership, development, resource and certification.

All Nordic nRF52 solutions supports ANT+ feature, developers may refer to below Raytac module map and find what the protocol supports by the symbol stated besides the Nordic solution indication.

Nordic nRF52805 module, MDBT42TV

Developers love to use smaller module in order to fit in maximum kinds of implement and applications. 

Nordic’s nRF52805 is a BT5.2 solution features an ARM Cortex M4 MCU with 24KB RAM and 192K Flash Memory, an idea solution to fulfill the applications which only need simple Bluetooth function but cost constrained budgetary.  

Raytac has developed 2 module lines, MDBT42T & MDBT42TV, employed nRF52805 with different antenna options for customer election. All the modules have Bluetooth BT5.2 qualification granted, FCC/IC/CE/Telec/KC/SRRC/NCC pre-certified. A well RF designed module with completed coverage of certification offer an advantage to speed up time to market efficiency and minimal the BOM cost.
