Raytac is glad to announce a brand new AT command module line released today.
Some people might not know this, but for developing these things, you need to get something called J-Link to connect your MDBT50Q-RX to your desktop. However, since this J-Link, when buying the official one from SEGGER, is very expensive, we strongly recommend you to just buy the nRF52840-DK from Nordic Semiconductor as it can be used as a J-Link through their software development kit (SDK) called nRFgo Studio and is MUCH CHEAPER than the official J-Link from SEGGER is.
Sidenote: There are a couple of other reasons why you should just get your hands on a nRF52840-DK from Nordic Semiconductor instead of getting a SEGGER J-Link, but that’s not the topic of this post 😉
When this is done, this is finally how you connect your MDBT50Q-RX to your J-Link to make it all work:
Here you will have to pay attention to the fact that you have to connect J-Link pins 3, 5 & 9 to GND. Otherwise, you won’t be able to burn anything onto your dear MDBT50Q-RX.
The physical connection should look like this:
Pay attention to the direction of the cable, because that will also matter. The direction we mean in this case is which way the slim strip of red is facing.
As we have just revised our MDBT50Q-RX, our customers who have been developing firmware for our USB dongle should take a look at our previous blog post in which we explain about the changes made or contact us directly at email@example.com
Have a good day and we at Raytac wish you smooth and happy tinkering 🙂
Raytac would like to announce MDBT50Q series Bluetooth Module which deployed Nordic nRF52840 solution have WPC (India) certificate granted.
We believed it will help Indian customers breakthrough to Bluetooth world with Raytac WPC certified nRF52840 modules.
After Nordic released nRF52840, the confusion raised what the difference between nRF52832. Raytac provided an easy comparison chart based on module solution hopes to provide a quick understanding in between.
Bluetooth 5, aka BT5, supports below features
4 x Longer Range
2 x Higher Speed
800% Broadcasting Capacity
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.
MDBT50Q Module Series Mass Production has completed, customers who are interested in nRF52840 solution may contact with firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Raytac’s MDBT50Q module deploy Nordic nRF52840 is a Bluetooth 5 (BLE), Zigbee and Thread (802.15.4) modular solution and is an advanced multi-protocol SoM with an ARM® Cortex™-M4F CPU and featured built-in USB and 5.5V compatible DC/DC supply.
The compact size 10.5 x 15.5 x 2.0 (2.2)mm incorporates 48 GPIO, integrated various antenna types option (Chip Antenna, PCB antenna, u.FL connector) provides developers flexibility to meet most IoT Application Demanding, Connectivity Range Requirement, BOM Cost Saving, Designs Simplifying, and Time-TO-Market Efficiency.
