High performance multiprotocol SoC supports proprietary protocols

09-11-2017 | Rutronik | Subs & Systems

The nRF52810 from Nordic Semiconductor is available now from Rutronik. It is an extremely power efficient and high-performance multiprotocol SoC supporting BLE, ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary protocols. The SoC has been designed to offer advanced features such as Bluetooth 5 and a powerful ARM Cortex-M4 CPU at a level that makes it compelling for even the lowest cost Bluetooth Low Energy applications. The new device supports Bluetooth 5 which is characterised by high throughput (2Mbps), ‘advertising extensions’ and improved coexistence features. The SoC is supported by the S112 Soft Device, an optimized BLE protocol software version (‘stack’) that reserves less memory but still ensures the use of all BLE functions. The ARM Cortex-M4 processor enables the most demanding applications to be realized in a single chip solution and all protocol handling to be executed in the shortest timeframe. Thus, the SoC can return to sleep faster and save power. Furthermore, the IC has a comprehensive system of automated and adaptive power management features and all individual peripherals and clocks offer complete flexibility of power down when not required for task operation. The operating voltage between 1.7V and 3.6V is suited for the direct connection to a cell battery. The company provides besides Bluetooth 5 also ANT and proprietary 2.4GHz protocols for the free programmable chip. Furthermore, it contains high definition RSSI and highly automated functionality, including EasyDMA for direct memory access during sending and receiving mode.
