Bluegiga BLE113 Bluetooth® Smart Module

Small, Low Power Bluetooth Smart Module

The BLE113 is a Bluetooth Smart module targeted for small and low-power sensors and accessories. It integrates all features required for a Bluetooth Smart application, including Bluetooth radio, software stack, and GATT-based profiles. The BLE113 Bluetooth Smart module can also host end-user applications, which means no external microcontroller is required in size or price constrained devices. Moreover, it has flexible hardware interfaces to connect to different peripherals and sensors and can be powered directly from a standard 3 V coin cell battery or a pair of AAA batteries.In the lowest power sleep mode it merely consumes 500 nA and will wake up within a few hundred microseconds. The BLE113 Bluetooth Smart module consumes approximately 30% less power and is smaller than the BLE112 Bluetooth Smart Module.
