2.4GHz FEM extends range and battery life
The 2.4GHz RF front end module (FEM) nRF21540 from Nordic Semiconductor is a "plug and play" range extender that improves range and connection robustness, when combined with the multiprotocol wireless SoCs of nRF52 and nRF53 Series or other radios.
Meeting the demand for smarter and more connected robots
Look inside any factory or production facility today, and you’ll probably find robots hard at work. According to research conducted by the International Federation of Robotics, in the two years from 2020 to 2022, there will be another two million industrial connected robots installed in factories around the world. Florian Schmäh, Product Sales Manager Boards at Rutronik explains more.
Farming and medicine benefit from UV LED solutions
From industry through to medicine and public infrastructure, the use of UV LEDs is offering new approaches in the fields of sterilisation, deep cleaning of air and water, agriculture and industrial manufacturing.

How to drive BLDC motors effectively with MOSFET tech
Our increased use of electric motors, especially in the automotive and industrial sectors, means that they are now a very large consumer of energy worldwide. BLDC (brushless FDC) motor technology is coming to the fore to improve reliability and efficiency, and MOSFET technology is providing an efficient drive solution. Mirko Vogelmann, Product Sales Manager Power Semiconductors, Rutronik explains.
Module covers multiple wireless protocols
Based on the SoC (System-on-Chip) nRF52840, Nordic’s most powerful short-range wireless microcontroller, Minew’s new MS88SF2 multi-protocol module can be operated with the wireless protocols Bluetooth 5.0, ZigBee 3.0, Thread and ANT, as well as with proprietary 2.4GHz stacks.
Rutronik plans Bluetooth, IoT demos at embedded world
How to take advantage of the latest Bluetooth, IoT, 5G and display technologies will be demonstrated at embedded world in Nuremberg (25-27 February 2020). Visitors to booth 467 in Hall 5 will see the latest solutions from RUTRONIK EMBEDDED, including system concepts ranging from connected sensor nodes and gateways to customer-specific display customisations.
Bluetooth RF module supports ten BLE connections
The HCI (Host Controlled Interface) Bluetooth RF module PAN1326C2 from Panasonic is based on Texas Instruments’ CC2564C dual-mode Bluetooth controller that combines Bluetooth Basic Rate (BR), Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) and Low Energy (LE).
Why devices with position tracking require an internet connection
In a few months the European satellite system Galileo will be completed. Most devices with location tracking functions already support it. Even so, their manufacturers should endeavour to implement over-the-air access, as this is the only way that satellite selection can be adjusted on demand as needed – something which can be a critical factor, writes Bernd Hantsche, Director Product Marketing Embedded & Wireless at Rutronik.
