With coming depreciation and withdraw of Legacy Bluetooth Core Specification Version, BT4.1/BT4.0 has been defined to be withdraw in 1 July, 2020, which covered Nordic’s nRF51 series solution (Raytac MDBT40 series module).
To resolve this issue, Raytac has updated the MDBT40’s Bluetooth specification to BT4.2 with DID: D042310. Raytac MDBT40/MDBT40-P/MDBT40-n designed based on Nordic nRF51xxx SoC with integrated Bluetooth 4.2, Bluetooth 4.1, and Bluetooth 4.0 stack. MDBT40/MDBT40-P/MDBT40-n module incorporates: GPIO, UART, SPI, I2C, and ADC interfaces for connecting peripherals and sensors. The modules are all FCC/IC/Telec/CE/KC/SRRC/NCC/ANATEL/RCM pre-certified (MDBT40-P includes CNC/IFETEL), which can speed up customers’ easy hardware design, reduce BOM cost, and enhance Time-To-Market efficiency
The granted BT4.2 DID includes not only basic GATT, RF PHY and Link Layer, but also a completed coverage of BLE software stack: Proximity Profile; Heart Rate Profile; Health Thermometer Profile; Blood Pressure Profile; Running Speed & Cadence Profile; HID Over GATT Profile; Alert Notification Profile; Glucose Profile; Cycling Speed & Cadence Profile ; Mesh Profile which fully support customers to suit the needs of any application!
A BT4.1 & BT4.2 & BT5 module maker based on Nordic nRF51 & nRF52 solution
(nRF51822 & nRF51422 & nRF52832 & nR52810 & nRF52840)
Bluetooth 5 grabs the attention may drop in “Long Range Feature”!
Compare to BT4.X BLE module in the market, mostly reach only about 20~30M.
Even Raytac’s BT4.X series modules, the best performance may about 100~140M line of sight.
Recent released MDBT50Q series, deploy Nordic nRF52840 has dramatically break the barrier of connectivity rage.
Upon the test under 1M bps / sending data and link maintain, the connectivity range has reached over 340M.
There are various Bluetooth modules in the market, but how developers should select?
Despite most of the module makers promote the module with FCC certificated or FCC pre test, the products built by this selected module can really comply with module approval policy?
Model: MDBT40 / MDBT40-P/MDBT42Q/MDBT42/MDBT42V
The main reasons can be referred to 4 powerful aspects
“Size, Performance, Safety, Cost”
Following by Raytac’s policy, all Raytac’s modules need to follow the module policy.
Here, we are pleased to announce that our MDBT42 module, Nordic nRF52832 solution, has completed the safety regulation testing.
Raytac Corporation has developed several module series based on Nordic nRF52832 solution, which is based on Bluetooth specification: BT4.2 and ready for BT5
MDBT42Q/MDBT42Q-P (called as MDBT42Q Series module in below) are the most friendly items that customers pay attention to.
MDBT42Q series module is a powerful, highly flexible ultra-low power multiprotocol module ideally suited for Bluetooth® low energy, ANT and 2.4GHz ultra low-power wireless applications. It is built based on Nordic nRF52832 SoC with 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M4F CPU with 512kB + 64kB RAM with I2C, SPI, UART interface. With a widely certification granted, it can help all developers and customers have the benefit to speedy up the developing schedule and reliable quality.
