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.
With Internet of Things (IoT) technology being the talk of the town for years, Bluetooth obviously has become the most important solutions for short and middle range device connection.
Raytac Corporation, a specialized module maker, adapted Nordic solution among various solution providers, developed a rage of modules with different form factors, antenna options and feature capabilities to optimize and simplify the design and development experience. By this comprehensive product line provided, project feasibility would never be the challenge for all developers.
The pertinent support need out of projects Raytac has been experienced is the accessibility of module design reference, in term of 2D (autocad), 3D (Step / ProE), footprint, reflow, and keep out area suggestion information. To provide a convenient and free to use resource library for developers is seriously been considered. Therefore, Raytac has created a support page in the website, loaded in all the essential design guide information based on all modules. Thus, developers all over the world can just simply click the website and obtain the immediate design information without taking time in back and forth mail communications. This does significantly save the developing schedule up to 2~3 days at least.

Many Customers are interested about Raytac’s facility, reliability and capacity. Here, Raytac would like to invite customers having a quick tour and know more about Raytac’s factory.
Raytac’s factory is located in New Taipei City where is located in north of Taiwan. The factory scales 4600 M2 with 180 man power. A completed in house SMT equipment and inspection facility provide a reliable and speedy module production line with over 600,000 pcs monthly capacity.
Raytac released MDBT50 series module which deployed Nordic latest nRF52 member, nRF52820 solution. nRF52820’s specification looks similar to nRF51822, but offer superior features than ever.
The nRF52820 features an Arm Cortex-M4 processor, 256 KB Flash and 32 KB RAM and offer I2C/SPI/UART but also full speed USB 2.0 interface which provide the maximum flexibility for commercial and industrial applications.
MDBT50 employed nRF52820 can be supplied with a voltage from 1.7 to 5.5 V, -40°C~105 industrial operation temperature. Features Upto +8 dBm output power and supports BT5.2 Direction Finding, high-throughput 2 Mbps, Long Range. Multiprotocol radio provides, Thread and Zigbee and Bluetooth mesh protocols.
MDBT50 series modules covers both nRF52833 and nRF52820 solutions and provide both chip and PCB antenna for customer’s selection. Developers are encouraged to visit Raytac website for more information.
Outside the home in the frozen world. Raytac take care!
Winter is coming and field is chilly. Stay home enjoy the warm is what people is looking for.To ensure users enjoy the joyful time on couch, Raytac conduct a 72 hrs non-stop connection reliability test under -40°C which is compliant with industrial standard. The significant result shows there is no any single packet lost over 252,979,200 bytes (244 bytes/Packet).
To ensure the Module is capable to work under 105°C, Raytac’s conducted a 72 hrs non-stop connection reliability test. The significant result shows there is no any single packet lost over 252,979,200 bytes (244 bytes/Packet).
It figures, Raytac launched nRF52820 & nRF52805 modules soon after Nordic released the SoC. As usual, all modules by Raytac are Bluetooth qualified and regulation pre-certified by FCC/IC/CE/SRRC/Telec/KC/SRRC/NCC. With both modules added on the list, whole nRF52 series module road map now has become comprehensive and completed.
#nRF52805 SolutionMDBT42T series designed for highly cost constrained.
Bluetooth applications not always tough and complicated.
Most cases, Bluetooth applications are brief and require simple bridge functionality only such as UART service for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or SPP for Classic Bluetooth (BT3 or BT2). Raytac adopted Nordic nRF52 base line solutions (nRF52805 / nRF52810 / nRF52811 / nRF52820) offer a series of base line modules with different form factor and antenna options for selection.
Excepting modules, Raytac even developed a firmware pre-loaded modules for base line solution which is called as AT command module series. AT command module collected a list of most common command that transparent transmission may need. A well developed firmware pre-loaded modules bring developers or customer a quick access to Bluetooth. Simply deploy the module onto applications and projects can be benefited with the maximum flexibility, design free, time saving advantage.
