BLE IoT development kit offers modular sensing and control options
Design & Manufacture
RS Components now offers the Bluetooth Low Energy IoT Development Kit from ON Semiconductor. Based on the industry’s lowest power Bluetooth Low Energy radio SoC, the modular platform is ideal for designers creating IoT applications with extended battery life including asset trackers, smart appliances, wearables, and smart lighting.
The ON Semiconductor RSL10 SoC is optimised for Bluetooth Low Energy applications. Featuring an Arm Cortex-M3 core, and a low power DSP and a 2.4GHz transceiver, its peak receive power is 7mW and its 'deep sleep' consumption when inactive is just 62.5nW. Intended for use with 1.2V and 1.5V batteries, the kit accepts a voltage supply range between 1.1V and 3.3V without requiring a DC-DC converter.
The kit software includes the CMSIS vendor-independent development pack for the Arm Cortex-M processor series. The package gives detailed documentation and ready-to-use sample code for several use cases.
