Mouser Electronics is now stocking the SaBLE-x-R2 Bluetooth® 5 module from Laird Technologies. The SaBLE-x-R2 module builds on the hardware of the SaBLE-x module. The new module aims to accelerate the development time associated with implementing Bluetooth low-energy connectivity in internet of things (IoT) sensors and could be used in commercial, medical and industrial applications.
The Laird SaBLE-x-R2 module comes with an external or PCB trace antenna and takes advantage of the range, speed and throughput of the Bluetooth 5 specification and includes increased flash memory for application usage and over-the-air capabilities. The module is based on the Texas Instruments SimpleLink™ CC2640R2F wireless microcontroller. This module is self-contained and integrates an Arm® Cortex®-M3 application processor, Arm Cortex-M0 processor for radio frequency (RF) core, Sensor Processor Engine and high and low-speed clocks. It is designed to remove complexity and accelerate development time. It is pin-to-pin compatible with the original SaBLE-x hardware. This means upgrading to R2 doesn’t require any PCB footprint or hardware changes in the existing SaBLE-x board layout.
The SaBLE-x-R3 module comes with certification compliance with the Federal Communications Commission, Industry Canada, CE, Giteki and C-Tick regulatory bodies and qualification with Bluetooth SIG. The module is supported by the SaBLE-x-RE BLE development kit that provides all the necessary connectors, jumpers, indicators and switches to test and debug aspects of the SaBLE-x-R2 module.
