3rd Party Bluetooth low energy Modules

Don't want or can't afford to spend big money and time to get your product through Bluetooth and Regulatory approvals? A range of module suppliers offers qualified and certified modules based on Nordic Semiconductor technology.

 

Info
The products presented on this page are from 3rd party companies using Nordic IC technology, and must be purchased through the sales networks of these companies.

To get a Bluetooth or other wireless product on the market, there are a range of qualifications and approvals you will need to meet to prove that the product meet wireless standards. This qualification involves both testing and paperwork, which can be relatively complex and costly for those unfamiliar with the process. Approvals under wireless and tele regulatory standards cannot be obtained on IC's alone, they can only be acquired for complete products or sub-systems/modules.

Today, many of the world’s best-known module manufacturers offer modules based on Nordic Bluetooth low energy (previously called Bluetooth Smart) technology. These modules are available with the necessary external circuitry and are either partly, or fully, qualified (with/without integrated antenna) towards relevant wireless standards. On this page we have gathered a selection of such modules you can consider for your product. These module vendors are sorted alphabetically below. Please use the external links provided to find more information on features, MoQ, sales channels and pricing.
3rd Party Module

We have sorted the different module offerings in 2 categories, depending on what role they can play in your product.

 

1 - System on Modules

These modules are based on System-on-Chip (SoC) ICs from Nordic Semiconductor's nRF51 Series or nRF52 Series. Just like on the SoC ICs these modules offer you code space for your application as well as access to the ARM® Cortex™ M0 or M4 processor and peripherals of the device used. By using these modules you can leverage all the strengths of Nordic's SoC Hardware and Software architecture and make a 'single module product' without the need for an additional microcontroller to run your application.

2 - Network/Connectivity Modules

This is maybe what you would think of as a traditional RF modules. These modules act as pure modems handling the wireless communcation and offer your application control and communication through a pre defined serial interface. These modules add a wireless interface for your new or existing application, but will require you to include module specific SW libraries to your code base.
