New Product News

Ultra-Small BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) Module Has Been Developed.

After BLE Module: HRM1017, which is being mass-produced now, Hosiden has developed Hybrid BLE Module HRM1026 in which further downsizing and multifunctional capability go together. The board space of this product has been reduced to 48% of the existing HRM1017. This module becomes a link to making small devices wireless, mainly wearable devices like wristband-type instruments to measure amount of activity. In HRM1026, as well as in the existing HRM1017, we continue to focus on functionality, while achieving significant downsizing. With a microcomputer and a max of 30 GPIOs inside SoC type of BLE chip, this product can control peripheral circuits without an external microcomputer.
Hosiden has an assessment kit for this product, too. It is not only to evaluate products, but also it helps you to start software development before making prototypes of the circuit board of devices. It greatly contributes to the short-time development of BLE products and to their early release to the market.
