Telit Offers BLE Module With Integrated MEMS Motion and Environmental Sensors

Internet of Things company Telit has announced its BlueMod+S42M, a standalone Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) 4.2 single-mode module with an embedded three-axis accelerometer, as well as temperature and humidity sensors. The component is optimized for efficiency and simplicity in end-device design and manufacturing, the company reports, and provides BLE functionality with improved security, motion and environmental sensors, and features that reduce development costs, bill of materials and time to market.

Built for large-scale projects, the BlueMod+S42M expedites device design across a range of industrial and consumer applications areas. The embedded sensors are necessary for high-value, fragile asset tracking, as well as time- or temperature-sensitive applications, such as cold-chain monitoring in the pharmaceutical and agriculture industries.

The release of the certified BlueMod+S42M complements Telit's existing portfolio of Bluetooth and BLE modules, the company reports, and is intended to address demand in the rapidly growing BLE-dependent market.

"Cost, power and reliability are critical to the success of IoT applications that demand efficient Bluetooth Low Energy solutions," said Ronen Ben-Hamou, Telit's EVP of products and solutions, in a prepared statement. "Our new qualified Bluetooth module caters to designers of all levels with tight development, materials and manufacturing cost constraints and even tighter timelines. The beauty of the +S42M is its simplicity: single-chip SoC, feature-packed, sensibly priced, exceptional power savings and extensive interoperability."

Full applications can be embedded in the BlueMod+S42M, which is a self-contained SoC requiring no additional external supporting components. The device is equipped with an on-board micro-controller, an integrated chip antenna, passive components, temperature and humidity sensors, and an accelerometer.
