RF-star Reaches (AEC)-Q100 with BLE CC2340 Modules
August 22, 2023
RF-star is now offering its BLE CC2340 modules based on TI’s new CC2340 MCUs. The solution delivers standby current less than 710 nA, 40% lower than current devices. There is the capability to achieve upwards of 10+ years of maturity on one battery the size of a coin. RF performance and networking range is enhanced with a low output of up to +8 dBm. The BLE module will easily operate wireless applications like electronic shelf labels and tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS).
A variety of antenna choices are supported as well as differentiated RF output modes including half-hole ANT RF pin and IPEX connector for flexible application choice. An RF balun is integrated for a simple approach to design without needing an abundance of external devices. While deployed at the rugged edge, the BLE CC2340 operates between -40ºC to 85ºC, maintaining an efficient and stable wireless connection.
Developed for automotive use, the CC2340 modules based on CC2340R5-Q1 meet the constraints of the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC)-Q100.
