Fingertip size Bluetooth® 5 Module

With a design based on the Nordic nRF52832 SoC, combining a low power 64 MHz ARM Cortex-M4F and the 2.4 GHz radio in a single chip, the BLYST Nano SoM (System on Module) is the perfect way to catch this new Bluetooth IoT wave driven by both Bluetooth® 5 and Bluetooth® Mesh.

  • The BLYST Nano is low power and small enough, at 10 x 7 x 1.6 mm, for wearable and sensor applications.
  • With 30 programmable I/O pins, it's versatile enough to fit any control and automation application.
  • With a hardware floating-point unit, algorithms can be directly implemented on the device, allowing more real-time sensor fusion processing.
  • It is a complete System on the Module with all required components (crystals, coils, DC/DC, etc.) built-in and ready to use. So you don't need to take up more board space with add-on components needed to support a given module.


BLYST Nano Module Features

  • Built-in ceramic antenna
  • Built-in coils for low power DC/DC mode
  • Built-in 32 MHz & 32.768 MHz crystal for low power
  • Dimensions: 10 x 7 x 1.6 mm
  • No extra PCB spaces or any external components required on users' application board
  • All I/O pins of the nRF52832 are exposed to pads around the edges of the module to take full advantage of the nRF52832 and for easy assembly without compromise
  • FCC & CE certified
