A BT5.2 & BT5.1 & BT5 & BT 4.2 module maker based on Nordic nRF52 & nRF51 solution
(nRF52840 & nRF52833 & nRF52832 & nRF52820 & nRF52810 & nRF52811 & nRF51822)
Here introduce the firmware perspective about how to program your code onto MDBT50Q-RX dongle.
Believed all readers have done the hardware setting and now has well prepared to load the code onto the dongle. (If not yet done the hardware setting, pls find it here)
In this blog, we will introduce the procedure based on below 2 scenarios
With over 1,000 exhibitors gathering in Nuremberg, Germany on 25 Feb.~27 Feb., 2020 , Embedded World already is one of the biggest trade fair among the IoT Technologies.
Raytac is pleased to be in attendance and present our full range of module family based on Nordic nRF52840, nRF528333 and all others.
We welcome all developers come to meet us and look forward to seeing you there.
Just right at the start of 2020, we are happy to announce nRF52833 modules are now available!
Raytac’s nRF52833 series modules are introduced in 3 kinds of antenna options (Chip Ceramic / PCB / u.FL connector for external antenna) brings the best usability to meet different implements.
Chip Antenna Version: MDBT50Q-512K
PCB Antenna Version: MDBT50Q-P512K
u.FL Connector Version: MDBT50Q-U512K
From the article “Change to nRF52833 module? What the Hardware & Firmware Setting Need To Review?“, Raytac has highlighted Keil users need to update nRF Device Family Pack version to 8.27.1 for SDK16
Here introduced how to change the nRF DeviceFamilyPack version.
Developer who currently are using nRF52840 based modules must be excited waiting for nRF52833’s distribution. Most developers are aware that nRF52833 supports long range, multi protocol and USB interface but has less RAM and Flash memory rather than nRF52840 and no doubt is the best alternative to have cost effective without extra efforts.
Raytac has released 3 models of nRF52833 based modules just at the same time when Nordic released, MDBT50Q-512K / MDBT50Q-P512K / MDBT50Q-U512K. Both nRF52840 and nRF52833 module are based on same form factor and pin out. To have quick visual identification finding the difference, Raytac’s nRF52833 modules are built by Green PCB but nRF52840 modules are Blue.
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.
Raytac is glad to announce that we has expanded our distributor network to Japan with 丸紅情報システムズ株式会社 (Marubeni Information Systems Co. Ltd.).The distribution agreement covers sales, marketing, and support for Raytac Corporation’s full range of Modules lines, including Nordic’s proven nRF51 Series, nRF52 Series, and nRF52840 in the territory.
With recent solid demand and positive feedback receiving from market, we strongly believe that IoT is the future to enhance people’s life.
With Marubeni Information Systems Co. Ltd. join Raytac’s module distribution network, we truly expect he complementary of network portfolio can bring the opportunity and competitive advantage along with a speedy and convenient accessibility for developers.
