Mouser Electronics, Inc., is now stocking the Feather Nrf52 Bluefruit from Adafruit. The Feather Nrf52 Bluefruit is a complete Arduino-compatible Bluetooth® low energy development board with built-in USB and battery charging. Using the powerful onboard Nordic system-on-chip (SoC), engineers and makers can run code directly on the board without requiring external microcontrollers. This improves performance and power consumption for the internet of things (IoT), wearables, lighting, MIDI audio and other applications.
The Adafruit Feather Nrf52 Bluefruit improves on previous Nrf51-based Bluefruit modules with double the flash memory, SRAM and performance with native support for the Arduino integrated development platform (IDE). The Feather incorporates a Nordic Nrf52 SoC, which is built around a 32-bit Arm® Cortex® M4F processor with 512 Kbytes of flash and 64 Kbytes of RAM. The SoC’s embedded 2.4 GHz transceiver offers transmit power up to 4 dBm and receiver sensitivity of -96 dBm in Bluetooth low-energy mode.
The board offers a range of peripherals, 19 general-purpose inputs and outputs (GPIOs), eight analog inputs and three four-output PWM modules. A built-in USB-to-serial converter enables quick programming and debugging and a standard lithium polymer battery connector provides onboard USB-based battery charging. The 51 mm x 23 mm x 8 mm board weighs 5.7 grams without headers.
