The SmartBond DA14586 Bluetooth 5 system-on-chip (SoC) from Dialog Semiconductor is now in stock at Mouser Electronics. Part of the highly integrated SmartBond family of power-efficient Bluetooth low-energy solutions, the new SoC is Dialog’s first standalone device that is qualified to support the latest Bluetooth 5 specification, delivering low power consumption and high functionality for advanced use cases.

The device is ideal for adding Bluetooth low energy Mesh to products like remote controls, proximity tags, Internet of Things (IoT) beacons, connected medical devices, and smart home nodes.

It offers designers all the benefits of the DA14580/DA14581, but with greater flexibility to create more advanced applications from the smallest footprints and power budgets.

Other enhancements include an advanced power management setup with both buck and boost converters, which enable support of most primary cell battery types.

In addition to Bluetooth 5 support, DA14586 has 2 MBytes of flash memory and 96 kBytes of RAM for user applications.

It also includes an integrated microphone interface, which allows designers to add intuitive intelligent voice control to any cloud-connected product that has a microphone and speaker.

The DA14586 complies with Bluetooth 5.0, ETSI EN 300 328 and EN 300 440 Class 2 (Europe), FCC CFR47 Part 15 (US) and ARIB STD-T66 (Japan).

The SoC is supported by the DA14585 Development Kit Pro and Dialog’s SmartSnippets software to help engineers optimise software for power consumption.
