Bluetooth 4.1 Network Processor Ups Speed, Lowers Power

The latest version of the BlueNRG Bluetooth SMART network processor supports the latest Bluetooth version 4.1 enhancements and introduces 1.7V operation for longer battery life. It integrates a complete Bluetooth PHY and 2.4-GHz radio, ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller running the Bluetooth 4.1 protocol stack, and a dedicated AES-128 security coprocessor. The API, power management, and Flash are already integrated, allowing direct connection to the application host controller using a SPI bus leveraging clear software partitioning between network processor and host microcontroller. BlueNRG-MS is available now in a 5 mm x 5 mm x 1 mm QFN32 package, priced from $1.50 each/1000. A CSP option with the 2.6 mm x 2.6 mm footprint and a height as low as 0.56 mm will be available after April. For further information, visit
