BLE module with built-in antenna and oscillator for IoT system control

Mouser now stocks the RX23W module with a built-in antenna and oscillator from Renesas Electronics. The compact 6.1mm x 9.5mm module provides a full Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy support for system control and wireless communication on IoT endpoint devices.

The module includes the microcontroller to support full Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy communication, including long-range and 2Mbps data throughput and a reception sensitivity level of −105dBm at 125kbps. The module is offered with Renesas’ exclusive security function, the Trusted Secure IP, offering robust protection against threats such as eavesdropping, tampering, and viruses. And with Radio Law (Japan), FCC/ISED (North America), CE (Europe), and Bluetooth SIG certifications, the module eliminates the necessity for extra RF design work, tuning, or specialised RF knowledge, shortening new product development time.

Applications for the module include healthcare, smart home appliances, building automation, PC and smartphone peripherals, industrial and IoT designs. For development, the company also stocks the RX23W Module Target Board, which includes the RX23W module, two 36-pin headers for access to all signals, and a USB port for PC connectivity for programming and debugging.
