High Performance Bluetooth Low Energy Module with MCU & Antenna


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


Insight SIP’s popular 130301 BLE Module offers for many customers the perfect balance of power and performance at a competitive price for their Bluetooth Low Energy Applications. Based on Nordic Semiconductor’s market-leading nRF51 chip, it is one of the smallest BLE / Bluetooth Smart modules on the market, at a size of only 8x 11 x 1.2 mm. With an integrated M0 processor, it can run as an autonomous Bluetooth node, connected to sensors via the analog/digital interfaces, or it can connect to external microprocessors via various bus interfaces as part of a more complex system.

Power consumption is excellent, and with integrated crystals and DC-DC converter, this Bluetooth Smart Module maximises the energy-saving features of the Nordic chipset.

Offering tiny size, a large flash and SRAM capacity, and low power consumption, this Bluetooth V4.2 Compliant Low Energy module offers the ideal choice for customers wanting to balance cost and sophistication.
