Small-Sized, All-Purpose Bluetooth Low Energy Module has been developed

Hosiden has developed a module which supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) standards. The number of BLE-compliant appliances, including smart phones and PCs, has been increasing in the market. Hosiden BLE module is a small-sized, all-purpose module which can be installed in peripherals, communicating with these products with low power consumption.
As this product has already acquired Bluetooth certification, it is easy for appliances in which the module is installed to get the certification and contributes to the reduction of product development costs. In addition, this module is equipped with SoC type BLE chip Nordic nRF51822 and can use a maximum of 31 GPIOs. For that reason, products with simple circuitry structures without using additional microcomputers can be designed.
