Fujitsu Introduces Bluetooth® Smart Beacon for IoT Solutions

December 17, 2015

Fujitsu Bluetooth® Smart Beacon for IoT Solutions
Fujitsu Component America, Inc. today introduced a battery-powered Bluetooth Smart Beacon that can be paired with existing or OEM-developed Internet of Things (IoT) applications and other custom features for a complete, wireless beacon solution. Market uses include indoor navigation at train stations, airports, and exhibition halls; logistics management; health care; retail couponing; and Point of Presence (PoP) for museums, expos, etc.

The Fujitsu FWM8BLZ02 is a broadcast-only beacon with a 20m transmission range (typical) and a battery life of up to two years. Customers can use the unit’s text-based, over-the-air configuration mode to load existing protocols, such as iBeacon and Eddystone, or to define and change custom protocols, operating parameters, and advertising data. An LED indicator visually distinguishes between normal operating mode, configuration mode and recovery mode to help prevent errant initialization.

Packaged in a 40.0mm x 31.0mm x 12.0mm plastic case, weighing only 10g, the beacon is powered by a CR2450 coin-cell battery and is based on Fujitsu’s MBH7BLZ02 Bluetooth Smart module. Fujitsu also provides sample application source code for iOS and Android that give practical demonstrations for using the library.

The FWM8BLZ02-109042 beacon is FCC, IC, and CE certified and meets the Bluetooth v4.1 specification. Samples are available now, with general availability in January 2016. For more information please send an email to components@us.fujitsu.com.
