The iVativ RENO module is based on the Nordic nRF52840 SoC and supports Bluetooth 5.0, Thread/ZigBee/ANT, and NFC-A. By integrating all relevant analog front-ends, antennas and crystals, the small form factor (10 mm x 1.5 mm x 1.5 mm), and particularly low power consumption reduce system costs while offering high design flexibility. Advanced security features, integrated wireless stacks, network stacks, and application APIs offload the host processor and reduce development costs and time-to-market. It is suitable for smart home applications, asset trackers and location devices, smart fitness devices, healthcare systems, IIoT sensors and control, and mobile payments.
RENO ensures secure connectivity and data protection through Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 (BLE) and supports UART and SPI as interfaces to the user's MCU. The module is FCC, IC and CE certified. Here, iVativ uses an ARM® CryptoCell 310 crypto accelerator and AES 128-bit encryption. APIs and AT commands make the module usable on all popular MCUs with little or no porting effort. The component integrates RTOS- or bare-metal-based user applications seamlessly and is independent of SoC/chipset and the corresponding SDKs/firmware. Likewise, a secure boot process can be guaranteed.
