IoT Company Rutronik to Distribute Insight SiP Bluetooth and RF Antenna Modules

Rutronik, a distributor of electronic components, semiconductors and solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and embedded systems, has announced that Insight SiP's ISP1507-AL system-in-package (SiP) is now available at Rutronik24. Based on the nRF52810 multiprotocol system-on-chip (SoC) from Nordic Semiconductor, the ISP1507-AL is a fully integrated Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module that, according to the company, is suitable for mesh relay nodes and IoT applications.

The ISP1507-AL module features an ARM Cortex M4 floating point processor, enabling the new SiP to perform fast calculations, as well as analog and digital peripherals. Its dimensions (8 millimeters by 8 millimeters by 1 millimeter), performance and range of functions make it suitable for use with solutions requiring fast processing and low power consumption, the company indicates. Target applications include the IoT, industrial sensors, wearables, beacons and home automation.

"The new ISP1507-AL module from Insight SiP truly represents the state of the art in Bluetooth module technology," said Mary Ellen Bauchman, Rutronik's director of product marketing for North America, in a prepared statement. "As the smallest fully integrated BLE module available on the market, the ISP1507-AL device provides a complete solution for Bluetooth Low Energy and ANT connections. With its miniature size, high performance, and wide range of integrated functions, the new module offers an ideal solution for complex applications that require fast processing and low-power consumption."

The ISP1507-AL BLE module features 192 kilobytes of flash memory, 24 kilobytes of RAM and two integrated crystals (32 MHZ and 32 kHz), allowing for high-performance operations. In many cases, the company notes, the ISP1507-AL SiP can eliminate the need for an additional microprocessor or additional memory. It comes with an antenna and various interfaces, including SPI, I2C, UART and ADC.

The ISP1507-AL BLE module supports Bluetooth 5.0, ANT+ and other mesh protocols, and an optional NFC antenna allows touch-to-pair functionality. The ISP1507-AL SiP is based on Nordic's nRF52810 SoC, and Nordic's software stacks can be used with the new module. In addition, the unit is pin-compatible to related modules, including the ISP1507-AX and the upcoming ISP1807-LR. The ISP1507-AL BLE module is now available for purchase at Rutronik24.
