Today we announced the Blue Gecko BGM113 Bluetooth Smart Module, a fully integrated, certified Bluetooth® low-energy module designed for low-power, short-range wireless applications. This module includes everything you need for energy-sensitive IoT applications, including best-in-class module size (9.2 mm x 15.8 mm x 1.83 mm), on-board software stack, and global certifications.
This combination of features, small design footprint, and support means you can get your Bluetooth project up and running much faster without compromising the current consumption and battery.
Other features include:
It’s also footprint-compatible with the popular BLE113 module, making it possible to migrate to an ARM Cortex-M4 Bluetooth platform with higher application processing power and lower power consumption while opening a path for Bluetooth 4.2 upgrades. Similar technical features and identical software and APIs make it easier to migrate from a module design to an SoC design.
