Ultra low power BLE module features chip antenna

Murata has unveiled the LBCA2ZZVZE Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless module, which includes a chip antenna and Bluetooth protocol stacks for low energy communication. Designed for a range of consumer electronics, the module also features healthcare protocol profiles included in the stacks.

Measuring 20 x 13 x 2.4mm and based on Texas Instruments' CC2541 chipset, the module has an output power of typically -2dBm and is fully wireless certified to Bluetooth 4.0, TELEC, FCC/IC and CE specifications.

The module requires an input voltage in the range 2.2 to 3.6VDC. Current consumption is 100uA average for a 500msec connectional interval.

Suitable for interfacing to 8 or 16bit embedded microcontroller applications via the UART interface, the module can be incorporated into battery powered healthcare designs from blood pressure meters to bathroom scales.
