Bluetooth technology has been developing over decades, Nordic nRF5340 no doubt is the most important edge cutting wireless evolution released in 2020 since then. Throughout the common either audio or data Bluetooth transmission to advanced data & audio connection between devices, IoT applications now have already been derived from past simple purpose toward contemporary comprehensive and complex implements in either commercial or industrial fields.
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.
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. In addition, the module offers an extended working temperature of up to +105°C enabling the module to become the most reliable connectivity source for industrial applications. 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.
Over the past few years, Raytac experienced the fast changing of Bluetooth technology from BT2 all the way to latest BT5.2; from heavy power consumption to advanced Low Energy. Raytac is determined in its the mission to provide better module service in the aspects of quality, coverage, and stable pipeline to all partners. MDBT53 & MDBT53V, nRF5340 solution modules, an epochal Bluetooth technology which significantly improves the connectivity ability from data transmission toward audio broadcasting which would be the best model to provide technology that could benefit and contribute to people’s lives.
nRF52833 is a powerful solution which supports multiprotocol such as Bluetooth, Zigbee, and Thread but also qualified for industrial operation at an extended temperature range of -40°C to 105°C.
Raytac’s MDBT50Q and MDBT50 module employed nRF52833 solution offering 2 kinds of form factor with either 48 or 18 GPIO option for selection. 3 antenna options helps developers to find the best balance between performance and budgetary for projects.
MDBT50Q and MDBT50 modules are BT5.2 qualified supports direction finding and Bluetooth long range feature. Both are built around 128K RAM, 512K Flash memory with I2C, SPI, I2S, UART, NFC, USB interface. A 1.7V to 5.5V supply voltage range enables powering the device from rechargeable batteries or over USB and +8dBm output power has significantly enhance the bluetooth long range coverage which is suitable for outdoor or smart home applications.
The modules are FCC/IC/CE/Telec/KC/SRRC/NCC/RCM pre-certified and in mass production for volume shipment. EVK demo board is also available for quick debug and evaluation. Developers who are interested in nRF52833 module MDBT50Q and MDBT50 are welcome get in touch with Raytac for immediate service support.
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.
Raytac announced both MDBT50Q-512K & MDBT50Q-P1M modules has extended the ambient temperature up to 105°C, following Nordic’s nRF52833’s specification.
Unlike a single component like SoC, modules acted as an integrated equipment which includes some other related components. To secure the module works under the latest environment request while Nordic nRF52833 released, Raytac ensured all related components meet the new temperature requirement with RF efficiency secured.
Today, we are pleased to announce nRF52833 modules:
MDBT50Q-512K: Chip Antenna
MDBT50Q-P512K: PCB Antenna
Both have successfully extended ambient temperature to 105°C which are the most ideal devices for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.

A BT5.2 & BT5.1 & BT5 & BT 4.2 module maker based on Nordic nRF52 & nRF51 solution
Nordic announced their 6th multi-protocol solution of nRF52 series with nRF52820, which supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Zigbee and 2.4GHz proprietary wireless connectivity.
Like other nRF52 siblings, nRF52820 highlights a powerful 64MHz 32bit Arm Cortex-M4 processor, includes 256Kb Flash Memory and 32Kb RAM, features of Bluetooth 5.2, 5.1 and 5 including long range and high-throughput of 2Mbits per second, as well as direction finding, low energy power control and low energy isochronous channels.
A full speed (12Mbits per second) USB 2.0 interface and 1.7~5.5V operation voltage bring a wide range of commercial and industrial wireless applications to nRF52820. To support nRF52820’s development, Nordic released SoftDevice S112, a new memory-optimized central stack. S112 now released as a alpha and will have full SDK (SDK V16.0.0) support coming in Q2 2020.
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.
Nordic’s nRF52833 is an advanced mulitiprotocol SoC solution which supporting not only Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Zigbee but also latest BT5.1 direction finding capable radio. The solution is built around 64MHz Arm Cortex-M4 FPU, 512KB flash memory, and 128KB RAM memory with an extended industrial standard working temperature range of -40 °C to 105°C which is an ideal solution for commercial and industrial applications.
Raytac Corporation, a Taiwan based Bluetooth module maker, has selected Nordic nRF52833 solution building up MDBT50Q series modules. MDBT50Q series modules provide 3 kinds of antenna options (Chip Ceramic / PCB / u.FL connector for external antenna) brings the best usability to meet different implements. The modules have BT5.1 certification and FCC/IC/CE/RCM/Telec/KC/SRRC/NCC/WPC pre-certified, which are the optimized solution that makes it attractive in a very wide range of applications from a performance, time-to-market efficiency, and minimal Bill of Material (BOM) perspective.
MDBT50Q /nRF52833 modules is expected to have mass production by 2019/11, customer who are interested in nRF52833 series module may visit Raytac website for more information.
