Renesas announced the sample shipments availability of the RYZ012 Bluetooth® module which targets ultra-low power IoT applications. The devices is the company’s first Bluetooth Low Energy 5 module. RYZ012 integrates 2.4 GHz RF transceiver supporting the IEEE802.15.4 multi-standard wireless protocol, Bluetooth Low Energy (LE), Bluetooth LE Mesh, and ZigBee.
Further, is features a power draw of 0.4µA during deep sleep (without SRAM retention). This allows for an extended battery life. It also houses a battery monitor for battery capacity measurement and low power detection.
The module supports the 2.4 GHz IoT standards without the requirement for an external DSP. Other features include a 32-bit microcontroller, 512kB flash memory, and 64kB SRAM for application support.
Renesas released two versions of the RYZ012 – with and without an integrated antenna.
Per the company, samples of both versions are available now with full product availability coming later this year.
