Nordic’s nRF51822 Bluetooth LE SoC is supplied in 6 x 6-mm 48-pin QFN package and 3.83 x 3.83mm ultracompact wafer-level chip-scale packages (WL-CSP) particularly suited to wearable devices.
Nordic’s nRF51822 is a powerful and flexible multiprotocol SoC ideally suited for Bluetooth LE and 2.4GHz ultra low-power wireless applications. The nRF51822 is built around a 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ M0 CPU, 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio, and 256kB/128kB Flash and 32kB/16kB RAM. The SoC is supplied with Nordic’s S130 SoftDevice, a Bluetooth 4.2 qualified concurrent multi-link protocol stack solution supporting simultaneous Central/Peripheral/Broadcaster/Observer role connections.
“The Nordic SoC offers the ideal wireless connectivity solution for our Smartwatch Platform by providing low power consumption, powerful CPU capabilities, an ultra compact package, and a software architecture that simplifies application code development,” says Philippe Fraboulet, CEO of MMT SWISSCONNECT. “In turn, that enables us to offer the only complete turnkey solution for connected smartwatches to prestigious brands such as Frederique Constant, Alpina, and others.
“As a company, Nordic has provided outstanding support, good application engineers, and fast response times throughout the prototyping and development process,” adds Fraboulet.
MMT is now porting its platform to Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC in order to improve power autonomy, processing power, and RF connectivity.
