Telit introduces Bluetooth module with integrated MEMS

June 27, 2017  - By

Telit has launched BlueMod+S42M, a Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) 4.2, standalone, single-mode module with embedded 3-axis accelerometer, temperature and humidity sensors.

The cost-effective component is optimized for efficiency and simplicity in end-device design and manufacturing, delivering reliable BLE functionality with robust endpoint security, motion and environmental sensors and essential features that reduce development costs, bill of materials, and time to market.

Designed for large-scale projects, the BlueMod+S42M expedites device design across a wide range of industrial and consumer applications areas, the company said. The embedded sensors are for high-value, fragile asset tracking, and time- or temperature-sensitive applications such as cold chain monitoring in the pharmaceutical and agriculture industries.

The release of the certified BlueMod+S42M complements the Telit portfolio of Bluetooth and BLE modules and directly addresses the demand in the rapidly growing BLE-dependent market. A report released by IndustryARC Analysis, forecasts Bluetooth Low Energy enabled devices shipments to increase to 8.4 billion units by 2020 at a CAGR of 29 percent.

“Cost, power, and reliability are critical to the success of IoT applications that demand efficient BLE solutions,” said Ronen Ben-Hamou, Telit EVP of products and solutions. “Our new qualified Bluetooth module caters to designers of all levels with tight development, materials and manufacturing cost constraints and even tighter timelines. The beauty of the +S42M is it’s simplicity: single-chip SoC (system on chip), feature packed, sensibly priced, exceptional power savings and extensive interoperability.”

Full applications can be embedded in the BlueMod+S42M, which is a self-contained SoC requiring no additional external supporting components. It is equipped with an on-board micro controller, integrated chip antenna, passive components, T°/Humidity sensor, and an accelerometer.

Leveraging a rich subset of features from Telit’s diverse family of BlueMod+Sx modules, including a GATT interface and terminal I/O profile combination, the new BlueMod+S42M greatly simplifies and accelerates the development of applications, Telit said.

In addition to efficient performance and low power consumption, BlueMod+S42M includes value-added features that further streamline development:

  • Bluetooth v4.2 Qualified Module
  • RED, SRCC Certified
  • Generic GATT Client and Server
  • LE Secure Connections
  • Configurable DIS (Device Information Service)
  • LE Data Length Extension
  • Terminal I/O for Easy Transparent Data Transfer (BLE- SPP like)
  • Embedded Sensors
  • Over-the-Air Updates
  • Sample Code for iOS and Android
  • WeChat Air Sync Protocol

Designers using the BlueMod+S42M have access to comprehensive development and integration tools including evaluation and development kits.

Visit Telit at the Sensors Expo in San Jose, California, June 27-29, booth 1244.
