BLUENRG-2N – Bluetooth 5.0 Certified Network Processor with Low Power Consumption and Increased Security for Smart and Wearable Applications
STMicroelectronics has introduced the pre-programmed, ready for connection BLUENRG-2N Bluetooth 5.0 certified network processor. The new device has a very low power consumption, increased data throughput, and enhanced privacy and security.
The Data Length Extension of the BlueNRG-2N accelerates over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates by up to 2.5 times and raises the data transfers to 700kbit/s. By using the Bluetooth LE Privacy 1.2 the address of the device changes frequently, this prevents unwanted tracking with minimal impact on system power consumption.
By using the BlueNRG-2N, designers of smart medical wearables, PC peripherals, remote controls, lighting, industrial and home automation can optimize their choice of a microcontroller (MCU) to meet specific model requirements.
The BlueNRG-2N is designed with an Arm Cortex-M0 MCU to host the main application and Bluetooth connectivity on the same device. Developers working with BlueNRG chips can take advantage of the powerful and user-friendly STM32 online development environment (ODE), which includes the STM32CubeMX GUI plugin, to kick-start their projects.
