Bluetooth Low Energy V4.0 - ISP091201 High Performance Module

Bluetooth Low Energy Module with Integrated Antenna


Features | Applications | Block Diagram | Main Specifications | Product User Guide |Dev Zone


Unlike the other Bluetooth Low Energy modules in the Insight SIP product range, this module does not have an integrated microprocessor.

This makes it the ideal choice for customers who want to add radio connectivity to an existing application, and do not want to get involved in programming on an additional microprocessor.

Based on the Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 series chip, this BLE Module offers digital connectivity via SPI and UART to an external microprocessor. Power consumption is excellent, and it is offered in a miniature 8 x 12 x 1.5 mm package, making it one of the smallest modules of its type available on the market.

  • IoT applications, connected objects
  • Wearable technology
  • Home automation
  • Beacons
  • BLE connectivity for any existing application

Block Diagram

This module is based on Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 μBlue Bluetooth Low Energy Platform. The nRF8001 is a single chip transceiver with an embedded baseband protocol engine, conforming to the v4.0 Bluetooth Low Energy Specification. The module integrates all the decoupling capacitors, the 16 MHz crystal and load capacitors plus the RF matching circuit and antenna in addition to the transceiver.
