Raytac Corporation, a vanguard of Nordic module maker, is pleased to announce that the MDBT42Q/MDBT42/MDBT42V Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) series module which built by Nordic nRF52832 and nRF52810 has been recognized by SIG for BT5.0 specification.
Raytac currently is the most popular Nordic module maker on the market so far, who provides with customers not only superior RF efficiency but also reliable quality control of the best connectivity experience..
However, several developers came up recently and queried that there are some Raytac alike modules selling on the market. To avoid the confusion for all developers, here’s a quick way to identify: all Raytac’s modules are equipped with an shielding case with company name “ Raytac Corporation” engraved.
Raytac BT5 module MDBT42V series designed to provide developers of Internet of Things (IoT) and wearable connected products.
Today, Raytac would like to present an engagement module “MDBT42V”, a compact nRF52832 module (8.4mm x 6.4mm x 1.5mm), built by Nordic solution with Bluetooth Specification BT4.2 & BT5 to all prospective partners.

A Bluetooth module needs to have 2 factors certification.
1. BQB Qualification
BQB testing is including RF PHY & Profiles interoperability testing.
Module only applied BQB with BOTH 2 tests can comply with Module Policy.
SIG Declaration ID (also known as DID) is essential.
Raytac’s MDBT40/MDBT40-P module past hardware RF PHY testing but also has past all Nordic profiles interoperability tests.
As such, customers who is using Raytac’s module to build up the products can follow the Module Policy which means can just sublist all products under single DID’s Product List without applying another.
2. Regional RF Safety Regulation
Many of Raytac’s customers are curious why Raytac modules have so many no. on the shielding case.
Similar to BQB qualification, to have Antenna+Shielding case+ Qualification Report No. on shielding is essential condition to comply Module Policy for regional RF Safety Regulation.
Different from BQB, Regional RF Safety Regulation is law enforce issue in custom for every border.
Raytac’ MDBT40/MDBT40-P has complied following safety regulation in different countries by Module Policy.
Excepting CE and RCM which are not conducting Module policy, Raytac modules can bring a easy way for all customers to save time and cost without further regulation testing again in finished products.
