Nordic nRF5340 Module MDBT53 and MDBT53V By Raytac Corporation

Nordic nF5340 is the first wireless SoC with dual core processors which aimed to optimized the performance of complex IoT applications and LE audios. The dual core contains a 1MB Flash / 512K RAM M4F MCU for application processor and another 256K Flash / 64K RAM for network. This structure remarkable optimized the performance also low power efficiency.

Raytac released 5 modules with 2 form factors, MDBT53 and MDBT53V,  with different antenna options for selection. The modules deployed nRF53 SoC supports high-speed SPI, QSPI, USB, I2C, I2S, and NFC interface and 105°C industrial temperature specification. BT5.3 pre-qualified, FCC/IC/CE/Telec (MIC)/KC/SRRC/NCC pre-certified is a MUST for all Raytac modules.

MDBT53 is a System-on-Module (aka SoM) with a good size of 9.3mm x 14.3mm and 48 GPIO which is an ideal dimension to fit in most applications. MDBT53 provides 3 antenna options, Chip antenna; PCB antenna; and u.FL connector for external antenna which deliver a maximum feasibility for most IoT projects. MDBT53-1M (Chip Antenna) MDBT53-P1M (PCB Antenna) MDBT53-U1M (u.FL Connector for External Antenna)

MDBT53V is designated for the application which has a space constraint design. A 7.8mm x 12.4mm with 25 GPIO is small enough to offer the opportunity of employing nRF5340 modules in the project. MDBT53V provides 2 options of antenna, Chip and PCB, for developers’ selection which is capable of optimizing the project plan in terms of performance and budgetary.  MDBT53V-1M (Chip Antenna) MDBT53V-P1M (PCB Antenna)

Raytac nRF53 Module BT5.2 Qualified, FCC/IC/CE/Telec/KC Pre-Certified

The nRF5340 is the world’s first wireless SoC with two Arm® Cortex®-M33 processors. The architecture is including an “Application Processor” which deployed a 1M Flash 512K RAM; and a “Network Processor’ which deployed a 256K Flash and 64K RAM. With the IoT applications has become more and more complex nowadays, nRF5340 is exact the solution to meet higher specification demand of technology and provide an easier and quick path toward project success.

Raytac deployed nRF5340 SoC to built up 2 series of module which are MDBT53 & MDBT53V . Both modules now have been completed BT5.2 qualification; FCC/IC/CE/Telec/KC/SRRC/NCC pre-certified. Quoted from Nordic Blog: First nRF5340 modules eliminate processor trade-off for developers, Raytac offer a range of qualified and certified modules based on Nordic technology which can immediately save the cost, time and complex process of the testing works. Shorten the Time to Market and Get the thing done quickly and effectively is what the advantage Raytac module can bring over to you.

Bluetooth Module UKCA Certification

“The UKCA marking came into effect on 1 January 2021. However, to allow businesses time to adjust to the new requirements, you will still be able to use the CE marking until 1 January 2023 in most cases” according to British Government’s announcement. 

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking has been an issue for brands since Brexit effected which regulate for goods, products been placed, used, sold in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking.

Bluetooth module provides wireless communication by using radio wave to connect over distances are requited to meet compliance with local standard. As the worldwide key Nordic solution module manufacturer, Raytac will continue to fulfill every major local government’s guidance of regulation compliance such as FCC, IC, CE, MIC, ….and UKCA for sure.

Wireless Certification For Wirepas Massive On Pre-Certified Module

Does the end products need to perform certification test again if using Wirepas Massive software on a Pre-certified Bluetooth module? The Answer is “No”!

Local wireless regulation is the obligation for all devices need to follow. Raytac recently have received several queries from customers asking about if products built by Raytac’s Bluetooth modules need to perform FCC testing again if loaded Wirepas Massive software (aka Wirepas Mesh)?

Wireless regulation by countries may simply divided into 2 categories which are modular policy and non-modular policy. Countries like USA (FCC), Canada (IC), Japan (MIC/Telec)…etc. are following modular policy which means end products do not need to perform wireless testing and allow to use certified module ID on end products directly without further testing required. For non-modular policy countries like Europe (CE), the end products can only reference part of module testing report but still need perform the testing based on product base.

Bluetooth modules loaded Wirepas software would not change the wireless characteristics and features in term of frequency, channels, modulation, transmit power and antenna from original. Therefore, the original module certification and testing report can be referenced, used and leveraged.

Wirepas, an IoT software provider offers a flexible, scalable, and high reliability connectivity solution has been significantly reducing the cost and complexity over projects. The long-standing partnership between Raytac and Wirepas framed a combined hardware and software solution, has built up an ecosystem by providing a per-certified module and ready-to-use software successfully shorten time-to-market for system integrations and accelerate business.
