Murata’s nRF52-Based WSM-BL241 Bluetooth 5 Module Now Shipping from Mouser Electronics



December 18, 2017 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the WSM-BL241 Bluetooth® low energy module from Murata. Based on a Nordic nRF52832 system-on-chip (SoC), the WSM-BL241 offers ultra-low-power Bluetooth 5 functionality in a small package, ideal for Internet of Things (IoT), asset-tracking, beacon, and medical applications.

The Murata WSM-BL241 module, available from Mouser Electronics, leverages the powerful Nordic nRF52832 SoC to provide high-performance Bluetooth low energy connectivity between smartphones, tablets, and other devices. The low-power nRF52832 SoC combines a built-in Arm® Cortex®-M4 core, 512 Kbytes of flash, and 64 Kbytes of RAM with a 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio. The WSM-BL241 module includes a 32 MHz crystal, on-board antenna, and two pins for an NFC antenna and external omnidirectional antenna—all in a form factor of just 7.4 × 7.0 × 1.0 mm.

The WSM-BL241 module is supported by the MBN52832 development kit, also available from Mouser. The MBN52832 development kit facilitates application development using the Nordic nRF52 software development kit (SDK). The kit consists of two separable modules: an interface module with J-Link USB-SWD and USB-UART interfaces, and a breakaway module with the onboard WSM-BL241 module with NFC antenna to support evaluation of Bluetooth- and NFC-based networking products.
