Microchip Technology recently released a demonstration platform for the lowest-power Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sensor node. The platform features an ultra-low-power BTLC1000-certified module, a SMART SAM L21 Cortex-M0+ MCU, Bosch sensor technology, and a complete software solution. The BLE demonstration platform includes source code, hardware design files, a user guide, and Android application source code.
Features, benefits, and specs:
- An integrated BTLC1000-MR110CA BLE module, delivering at least 30% more power savings compared to existing solutions.
- An ultra-tiny 2.2 mm × 2.1 mm Wafer Level Chipscale Package (WLCP).
- A SAM L21 that achieves a ULPBench score of 185, with power consumption down to 35 µA/MHz in active mode and 200 nA in sleep mode.
- Bosch six-axis motion (BHI160) and environment (BME280) sensors that can be used for a wide variety of sensing applications.
The Ultra-Low-Power Connected Demonstrator Platform costs $39.
