The ISP1507 from Insight SiP is a Bluetooth Low Energy module, based on the latest Nordic Semiconductor nRF52832 chip offering the next generation in BLE technology in a 8x8x1mm System-in-Package. The ISP1507 offers a full Bluetooth v4.2 stack and IPv6 connectivity, and thus can form the hub in IoT applications. This ready-to-use module offers a 32-bits ARM Cortex M4 CPU, 512kB flash memory, analog and digital peripherals SPI, I2C and GPIO.

Combined with its integrated 32MHz/32kHz crystals, RF antenna and matching circuit and DC/DC converter, this module forms a standalone Bluetooth Low Energy node.

Power consumption is typically 5.5mA (transmission and reception), 1.5uA for standby mode and 0.7uA for deep sleep mode ensuring best in class performance with a long battery lifetime. Transmission output power reaches +4dBm and reception sensitivity is also improved to -96dBm.

The ISP1507 also incorporates NFC type-2 tag functionality (external antenna required), enabling easy "touch-to-pair" functionality.

To support product developers, Texim Europe provides a complete development kit together with sample software that provides everything required out of the box to start developing a solution on day one.
