Nordic Semiconductor nRF8801 Bluetooth® Low Energy Connectivity ICs

Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 Bluetooth®
Low Energy Connectivity ICs

The Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 is a highly integrated single-chip Bluetooth® low energy Connectivity IC that integrates a fully compliant Bluetooth v4.0 low energy radio, link layer, and host stack. The nRF8001 features a simple serial interface that supports a wide range of external application microcontrollers. With peak currents as low as 12.5mA and average currents down to 9μA (for a 1s connection interval), the Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 Bluetooth Connectivity IC enables battery lifetimes of months to years from a single coin cell. The nRF8001 is a fully qualified Bluetooth v4.0 low energy design and combines the radio, link layer, and host into a single EPL (End Product Listing) enabling designers to easily create new Bluetooth end products without additional listing fees. The nRF8001 Connectivity IC is specifically designed for Bluetooth low energy applications that operate in the peripheral (slave), including proximity tags, PUID watches, remote controls, and sports/fitness/healthcare sensors.

Features
  • Fully qualified Bluetooth v4.0 low energy Connectivity IC with integrated Radio, Link Layer, and Host stack
  • Cost-optimized solution for Peripheral (Slave) role operation
  • Best-in-class power consumption enabling months to years of battery lifetime when running from standard CR2032 coin cells
  • On-chip DC/DC regulator enabling up to 20% peak current reduction for 3V cells
  • Fully integrated, low tolerance 32kHz RC oscillator eliminating the need for external 32kHz crystals
  • Simple serial interface (ACI) supporting a range of different external application microcontrollers
Applications
  • Mobile phone accessories
  • Proximity tags and watches
  • Sports, fitness, and healthcare sensors
  • PC peripherals
  • Consumer electronics (CE) remote controls
  • Home and industrial automation

Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 Development Kit

The Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 Development Kit is used in conjunction with the nRFgo Starter Kit to enable engineers to do evaluation, application prototyping, and firmware development with nRF8001 Bluetooth® low energy Connectivity ICs. The Nordic nRF8001 Development Kit includes an nRF8001 radio module, an nRFgo carrier card with an nRF8200 application microcontroller, and a Bluetooth low energy master emulator board. The Nordic Semiconductor nRF8001 Dev Kit also supports application development using 3rd party application microcontrollers by simply connecting the nRF8001 radio module to the 3rd party microcontroller development kit using patch cables.
