The ‘BT5 Bi-Direction Audio Remote Module’ from RFsen employs Nordic’s Bluetooth 5-compatible nRF52832 SoC to enable ‘better than CD quality’ audio streaming between consumer electronic products
Nordic’s nRF52832 Bluetooth LE SoC, a member of Nordic’s sixth generation of ultra low power (ULP) wireless connectivity solutions, combines an ARM M4F processor with a 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio (supporting Bluetooth 5, ANT™, and proprietary 2.4GHz RF software) featuring -96dB RX sensitivity, with 512kB Flash memory and 64kB RAM. When launched, the SoC was the world’s highest performance single-chip Bluetooth LE solution, delivering up to 60 percent more generic processing power, offering 10 times the Floating Point performance and twice the DSP performance compared to competing solutions.
“The most important hardware features that convinced us to use Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC were the ARM M4F core and its memory resources,” says Neil Niu, RFsen Co-founder. “The fact that Nordic’s Bluetooth 5 stack was very stable was another key reason for the decision, combined with good and timely technical support from Nordic engineers.”
