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.

Module Design Resource: 2D/3D/Footprint/Reflow/KeepOut Area Design Guide

 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.

Raytac keep improving to make things easier. Any idea you expect from Raytac, feel free to let us know~

Raytac Jointed Apple HomeKit MFi Program

Standing on marketing perspective point of view, iPhone user are often been viewed as a higher contribution margin group. Not only talking about consumer behavior, but also the motivation looking for device integrated with their own iOS devices. That explains why HomeKit devices recently has been widely spreading out in Apple stores or shops.

Wireless technology, says Bluetooth or WiFi, is the key role to connect between devices for Apple HomeKit implements. Surely, Bluetooth is more applicable than WiFi, not only easier to connect to iOS devices but also much lower power consumption and higher security level to rich consumer’s experience.

Raytac has been devoting to Bluetooth Low Energy module development for several years, started from BT4.0 to the latest. Raytac modules has selected Nordic’s solution, which is a highly optimized solution running HomeKit Accessory Protocol (HAP) and application firmware. The ultra-low power even enhance the design and usability for HomeKit devices implements.

After MFi Licenses program jointed, Nordic nRF5 HomeKit SDK is capable to access, Raytac expects to escalate the support ability in terms of hardware and firmware aspects for all customers who are interested in Apple HomeKit implements.
