from STMicroelectronics are easy to use Bluetooth SIG End-Product certified modules, and have obtained pre-certification
across major worldwide regions. Bluetooth Low Energy modules allow fast time to market, huge engineering cost savings and
come in a small form factor. The
modules are based on
network processor and supports Bluetooth v4.2 whilst the
modules are built around the BlueNRG-2 Low energy system-on-chip application processor and are provided with Bluetooth v5.0
certification. Both modules support multiple roles simultaneously, and can act at the same time as Bluetooth low energy
sensor/slave and hub/master device.
modules both have the entire Bluetooth low energy stack and protocols embedded and have a complete RF platform, RF Balun,
Radio, on board antenna, and high frequency crystal oscillators integrated to offer an overall hardware flexibility and
scalability during product design. The BlueNRG modules are included in ST's 10-year longevity program.

BlueNRG-M2 Block Diagram
is a Bluetooth low energy application processor module compliant with Bluetooth® v5.0. The
module has been designed around the ST BlueNRG-2 SoC where its Cortex-M0 core can execute both Bluetooth protocols and
the customer application. Optimized memory architecture includes 256 kB of Flash memory and 24 kB of ultra-low-leakage
RAM (with full data retention). In the
module both 32 MHz and 32 kHz crystal oscillators are available. The module has been designed to leverage the BlueNRG-2
integrated DC-DC step down converter in order to achieve the best power consumption in active mode and it also embeds a
high efficiency chip antenna. The module can be configured to support both application processor (host-less) and network
processor (hosted) modes.
Based on the BlueNRG-2 SoC, the
module leverages all the tools and documentation of its ecosystem: development kit, application notes, user manuals,
design notes & Tips. A wide set of sample programs are also available in C source code. The
module has a wide set of peripherals available for customer applications (1 x UART interface, 1 x SPI interface, 1 x
I2C interface, 14 GPIO, 2 x multifunction timer, 10-bit ADC, watchdog & RTC, DMA controller, PDM stream processor)
module allows applications to meet the tight advisable peak current requirements imposed with the use of standard coin
cell batteries. Optimized results are obtained when the embedded high-efficiency DC-DC step-down converter is used
the best performance in terms of power consumption is achieved using a 1.8 V DC power supply.
modules enable simple wireless connectivity into electronic devices, not requiring any RF experience or expertise for
integration into the final product. The modules can be powered directly with a standard 3 V coin cell battery, a pair
of AAA batteries or any power source from 1.7 to 3.6 V.
The modules are housed in a in a tiny surface mount form factor measuring just 13.5mm x 11.5mm with thickness of just
2.3mm typical. Their compact size makes them ideal for use in a wide range of applications including IoT sensors, wearables,
medical devices, security, smart home, building and industrial automation.
To support designers, STMicroelectronics have also released the
expansion board which provides Bluetooth low energy connectivity for developer applications and can be plugged onto an STM32
Nucleo development board (e.g.,
with ultra-low power STM32 microcontroller) through its Arduino UNO R3 connectors.
The expansion board features the Bluetooth® v5.0 compliant and FCC certified
application processor module based on the ST BlueNRG-2 System-on-Chip. This SoC manages the complete Bluetooth low energy
stack and protocols on its Cortex-M0 core and programmable Flash, which can accommodate custom applications developed using
the SDK. The
module supports master and slave modes, increased transfer rates with data length extension (DLE), and AES-128
security encryption. The
interfaces with the STM32 Nucleo microcontroller via SPI connections and GPIO pins, some of which can be configured by the
