iVativ Nile – Standalone Bluetooth 5.0 module based on nRF52840 SoC

The iVativ Nile is an ultra-low power standalone module based on the nRF52840 from Nordic supporting concurrent Bluetooth 5.0 and Thread/ZigBee/ANT/ANT+ also offers an integrated NFC-A tag.  The integrated high-performance ARM Cortex-M4 with 1MB flash and 256KB RAM reduces the system cost and gives design flexibility. Thanks to the integrated wireless stacks, network stacks and application APIs as well as all the advanced security features supported by ARM Trust Zone Cryptocell-310, this module reduces time-to-market and development costs. For the cost-effective implementation of high-performance devices with a long range, low power consumption and reliable wireless operation, this fined-tuned RF module contains all the analog front-end, crystals and antenna. The Nile is intended for applications in various IoT industries such as home automation, wearables, industrial IoT and smart medical through a highly advanced development environment. The module is available in an industrial temperature grade.
