Mouser Electronics Now Shipping STMicroelectronics BlueNRG-2 Bluetooth Low Energy SoC

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the BlueNRG-2 system-on-chip (SoC) from STMicroelectronics (ST). The BlueNRG-2 SoC is a power-efficient programmable processor with ultra-low-power features, high RF signal strength, and generous on-chip memory for Bluetooth low energy software and application code. The BlueNRG-2 is Bluetooth 4.2-compliant and Bluetooth 5.0-certified, which ensures interoperability with the latest generation of smartphones, and supports enhanced features such as state-of-the-art security, privacy, and extended packet length for faster data transfer.

ST’s BlueNRG-2 wireless SoC, available from Mouser Electronics, offers the same RF performance as the BlueNRG radio but improves sleep mode current consumption for longer application battery lifetime. The SoC features a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M0 processor and a Bluetooth low energy radio for energy efficiency and strong radio performance. The BlueNRG-2 also includes 256 kBytes of on-chip flash memory, allowing designers to embed both the Bluetooth low energy stack and the application code; 24 kBytes of static RAM with retention (in two 12-kByte banks); and SPI, UART, I2C standard communication interface peripherals.

The device benefits from an ultra-low-power design, including support for fast wake-up and sleep transitions, and a standby current of just 500 nA. In addition to the device’s excellent link budget up to 96 dB, RF-output power is boosted to +8 dBm to ensure clear and reliable communication for optimum efficiency, even in noisy environments. The BlueNRG-2 SoC is compliant with a range of RF regulations, including ETSI EN 300 328, EN 300 440, FCC CFR47 Part 15, and ARIB STD-T66.

Mouser is also offering the STEVAL-IDB008V1 evaluation platform, which includes an onboard BlueNRG-2 SoC with an accelerometer, gyroscope, MEMS pressure and temperature sensor, and debugs connector. Used in conjunction with the fully featured STSW-BLUENRG1-DK software development kit (SDK), the evaluation board’s three power options help engineers develop solutions for a wide range of applications, including wearables, retail beacons, keyless entry systems, smart remote controllers, asset trackers, and industrial and medical monitors.
