High range and reduced system costs: Stand-alone multi-protocol module iVativ NILE at Rutronik

08/05/2021 Knowledge

For high-end IoT applications: The iVativ NILE is an ultra-low power standalone module based on Nordic‘s nRF52840. It supports Bluetooth 5.0 as well as Thread/ZigBee/ANT/ANT+ and offers an integrated NFC-A tag. Due to its small form factor (10mmx15mmx1.5mm) and the integrated PCB antenna or MHF4 connector, the module is particularly design-friendly. The NILE is suitable for applications in various IoT industries such as home automation, wearables, industrial IoT and smart medical due to its advanced development environment. The iVativ product portfolio is available at www.rutronik24.de.

Thanks to the integrated network and wireless stacks, as well as the application APIs and all advanced security features supported by ARM Trust Zone Cryptocell-310, this module reduces both time-to-market and development costs. The integrated high-performance ARM Cortex-M4 with 1MB Flash and 256KB RAM also reduces system costs and provides additional design flexibility.

For cost-effective implementation of high-performance devices with a long range of > 1000m, low power consumption and reliable radio operation, this optimally tuned RF module contains, in addition to the antenna, the entire analogue front-end including crystals. The module operates at operating temperatures from -40°C to +85°C without restrictions.

Further features:

  • 3V or 5V power supply with integrated switching regulator
  • Bluetooth functions
    • Fully functional Bluetooth 5.0 (BLE)
    • Powerful open CPU: 32bit, 64MHz ARM Cortex-M4 CPU with Floating Point Unit (FPU)
    • Support for Secure Boot, BLE Secure Connections and Privacy
  • The Nordic SDK with examples and comprehensive documentation covers all functions supported by the module. SDKs are available for BLE, Bluetooth Mesh, Thread, Zigbee, ANT and HomeKit.
