Solid State Supplies offers world’s smallest Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) module

This highly integrated SiP solution is a complete Bluetooth subsystem with on-board radio transceiver, antenna, serial interfaces, core processor, memory, clock management, I/O, timers, triggers, hardware security and power management.

Acknowledged as the UK’s leading source of advanced embedded technology, Solid State Supplies Ltd. now offers the world’s smallest Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) SiP module from Silicon Labs. With a package size of 6.5mm x 6.5mm x 1.4mm the BGM11S Blue Gecko SiP (System in Package) module targets applications where ultra-small size, reliable high performance RF, low power consumption, full modular certification and easy application development are key requirements.

Based on a high performance 32-bit 38.4 MHz ARM® Cortex®-M4 processor with 256kB of flash program memory and 32kB of RAM data memory integrated the low power device consumes just 8.7 mA when operating and 2.5µA in deep sleep mode due to the integrated energy management circuitry.

The BGM11S is Bluetooth 4.2 compliant and compatible with Bluetooth 5 advertising as well as being Bluetooth mesh capable. The integrated antenna offers up to +8 dBm transmit power and -90 dBm receive sensitivity, requiring minimal PCB, plastic and metal clearance to deliver exceptional performance up to a range of 200 metres. The inbuilt metal shield enables full modular certification for worldwide regulatory compliance, allowing end products to be certified with minimal effort.

The BGM11S small physical size requiring just 51mm2 of PCB area, the SiP module is ideal for space-constrained applications including IoT devices, wearables, asset trackers, mobile healthcare and Bluetooth beacons. The metal lid on this part is for improved shielding. The same package is used for their BGM121, BGM123 and BGM13S too.

Commenting on the launch Matt Cook, Silicon Lab Product Manager at Solid State Supplies said: “This is a truly market leading product in terms of features, size, power consumption and cost. In space constrained applications where traditionally a chip design route would have been taken, the ease of integration and cost points make the BGM11S a compelling solution for the most demanding of applications. We look forward to supporting our customers as they enhance their products with this device.”

Quectel New LTE Module Enables Global Deployment with a Single SKU

Solid State Supplies has announced the introduction of  the industry’s first LTE Cat 4 module to provide global connectivity on up to 30 bands with LTE, 3G and 2G coverage all from a single SKU. This all-in-one module will massively improve the efficiency of global IoT deployment at optimized cost.

EG25-G is the latest addition to Quectel’s comprehensive LTE portfolio based on Qualcomm MDM9x07 chipset. Adopting the 3GPP Release 11 LTE technology, it delivers 150Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink peak data rates, with an optional GNSS receiver including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS to provide quick and accurate positioning.

The new module supports FDD LTE frequency bands of B1/B2/B3/B4/B5/B7/B8/B12/B13/B18/B19/B20/B25/B26/B28, TDD LTE bands of B38/B39/B40/B41, WCDMA bands of B1/B2/B4/B5/B6/B8/B19 and quad-band GSM/EDGE. This ensures devices with EG25-G inside can operate on networks of major global carriers like AT&T, Verizon, Telstra, Vodafone and T-Mobile. Moreover, EG25-G supports multi-carrier switch by detecting (U)SIM card.

Designed in a compact LGA form factor measuring 29.0×32.0×2.4mm, EG25-G is pin-compatible with Quectel’s best-selling EC2X family, allowing flexible migration. It also offers Mini PCIe form factor with built-in sim card holder, which will bring better plug-and-play experience.

“A growing number of today’s IoT developers tend to design and manufacture devices that can operate globally with a single hardware design. Our EG25-G was created to address such needs,” said Delbert Sun, Quectel Product and Marketing Director. “We are pleased to see that customers will achieve simplified production and testing processes, and save distribution costs due to the need for just one single SKU.”

EG25-G boasts a rich set of Internet protocols, industry-standard interfaces, abundant functionalities and extended life cycle, and is ideal for verticals including industrial routers, industrial PDA and video surveillance.
