Panasonic Industry Europe has launched a Bluetooth® 5.0 Low Energy module based on the Nordic
nRF52840 SoC single-chip controller. The module has an output power of up to +8 dBm and the high sensitivity
of the nRF52840 in combination with the LE coded PHY make the module very attractive for applications that
require a long range. In addition the ultra-low current consumption of the
makes the module an ideal choice for battery powered devices.
The Bluetooth® 5.0 features of the
module enable a higher symbol rate of 2Mbps using the high-speed LE 2M PHY or a significantly longer range using
the LE coded PHY at 500 kb/s or 125 kb/s. The new channel selection algorithm (CSA#2) improves the performance in
high interference environments whilst the new LE advertising extensions allow for much larger amounts of data to
be broadcasted in connectionless scenarios. Besides BLE5.0 with the qualified Bluetooth® mesh profile stack the
module also supports 802.15.4 and NFC-A. The
supports Type 2 Near Field Communication (NFC-A) for use in simplified pairing and payment solutions (external
has an onboard Cortex™ M4F processor, 256kB RAM and built-in 1MB flash memory allowing the module to easily be
used in standalone mode, thereby eliminating the need for an external processor, saving design complexity, space

Measuring just 15.6mm x 8.7mm x 2.0mm, the compact surface mount module has a rich set of security features which
include an ARM® TrustZone® Cryptocell 310 security core that supports a secure boot process for secure device
operation in the IoT space. In addition a temperature sensor is integrated in the
modules are supplied in Tape and Reel packaging format making them suitable for automated production processes, they
have an operating temperature range from -40°C up to 85°C and a supply voltage range from 1.7V up to 5.5V.
The modules have been carefully designed to meet the needs of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) applications
like devices for smart city infrastructure, industrial mesh networks or robotics within Industry 4.0 environments,
these applications all benefit from the comprehensive features of the
module. Other applications such as smart health and secure medical peripherals or building automation applications
like smart locks or intelligent lighting are also ideal areas of use. Thanks to the high performance and the built-in
security features of Cryptocell, the
Bluetooth® module it is also an excellent solution for edge computing products.

STMicroelectronics are powering the next generation of Industry 4.0 applications with a new vibration-sensing solution optimized to enable smart maintenance of factory equipment. The IIS3DWB is a system-in-package MEMS sensor featuring a 3-axis digital vibration sensor with low noise over an ultra-wide and flat frequency range. The wide bandwidth, low noise, very stable and repeatable sensitivity, together with the capability of operating over an extended temperature range (up to +105 °C), make the device particularly suitable for vibration monitoring in industrial applications.
