Fujitsu Component Developed Bluetooth® Version 4.2 Enabled Module
July 08, 2016
Fujitsu Component Limited (Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, President: Koichi Ishizaka) developed a Bluetooth version 4.2 enabled module and will provide samples from September 2016.
Bluetooth version 4.2 has caught attention of IoT field with its further lower power consumption and longer transmission distance compared with version4.1.
FUJITSU Component Wireless Module FWM7BLZ20 series is a compact wireless module corresponds to Bluetooth version 4.2. Its size is same as our Bluetooth version 4.1 enabled module MBH7BLZ02 series, though it achieves about a half of power consumption (about 5.4mA: actual measured value) and about double transmission distance at receiving sensitivity of -94dBm (actual measured value). FWM7BLZ20 series embeds Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52832 IC tip. The module offers significant increase of user’s usable area and higher data transmission speed by improved processing power and enhanced memory size of embedded processor. In addition, the module embeds NFC function to make it possible to connect NFC-enabled devices through outer antenna connected externally.
FWM7BLZ20 series is the best for the customers who would like to reduce power consumption and/or speeding up of Bluetooth devices such as IoT-related devices or its remote maintenance.
At a first step, we start to provide samples for FWM7BLZ20-109049, which does not embed Fujitsu Component firmware, from this September. Products with firmware embedded type will follow.
September 2016 (without Fujitsu Component firmware type)
