Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the SaBLE-x-R2 Bluetooth 5 module from Laird Technologies. The SaBLE-x-R2 module builds on the original field-proven hardware of the SaBLE-x module to accelerate the development time for implementing cutting-edge Bluetooth low energy connectivity in Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and beacons for commercial, medical, and industrial applications.
The Laird SaBLE-x-R2 module, available from Mouser Electronics with an external or PCB trace antenna, takes full advantage of the range, speed, throughput of the Bluetooth 5 specification and include increased flash memory for application usage and OTA capabilities. Based on the Texas Instruments SimpleLink CC2640R2F wireless microcontroller, the self-contained module integrates an Arm Cortex-M3 application processor, Arm Cortex-M0 processor for the radio frequency (RF) core, Sensor Processor Engine, and high- and low-speed clocks. Designed to remove complexity and accelerate development time, the module is pin-to-pin compatible with the original SaBLE-x hardware, which means upgrading to R2 does not require any PCB, footprint, or hardware changes in any existing SaBLE-x board layout.
The SaBLE-x-R2 module includes certification compliance with the FCC, Industry Canada, CE, Giteki, and C-Tick regulatory bodies, as well as qualification with Bluetooth SIG. The module is supported by the SaBLE-x-R2 BLE development kit, which provides all of the necessary connectors, jumpers, indicators, and switches to test and debug all aspects of the SaBLE-x-R2 module.
