Programmable BLE 5.3 SoC

22 November 2023 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

The BlueNRG-LPS is an ultra-low power programmable Bluetooth Low Energy wireless SoC solution. It embeds STMicroelectronics’s state-of-the-art 2.4 GHz radio IPs, optimised for ultra-low-power consumption and excellent radio performance, providing unparalleled battery lifetime.

It is compliant with Bluetooth Low Energy SIG core specification version 5.3 addressing point-to-point connectivity and Bluetooth Mesh networking, and allows large-scale device networks to be established in a reliable way. The BlueNRG-LPS is also suitable for 2.4 GHz proprietary radio wireless communication to address ultra-low latency applications.

The SoC embeds an Arm Cortex-M0+ microcontroller that can operate up to 64 MHz, and the BlueNRG core co-processor (DMA based) for critical timing operations with Bluetooth Low Energy.

The module provides enhanced security hardware support via dedicated hardware functions such as a true random number generator (RNG), encryption AES maximum 128-bit security co-processor, public key accelerator (PKA), CRC calculation unit, 64-bit unique ID, and flash memory read and write protection.

The BlueNRG-LPS can be configured to support both standalone or network processor applications.
