Laird BL654PA Modules for Bluetooth 5 and Thread Implementation Now at Mouser Electronics

October 8, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the BL654PA (Power Amplified) module from Laird Connectivity. The FCC, IC, RCM, KC, and Bluetooth® SIG-certified module allows engineers to implement single-mode Bluetooth 5 and Thread (802.15.4) technology into simple Bluetooth Low Energy designs.

The Laird BL654PA module, available from Mouser Electronics, is based on the highly flexible multi-protocol Nordic nRF52840 system-on-chip (SoC), which features a powerful Arm® Cortex®-M4F core and a multiprotocol radio that supports Bluetooth 5, ANT/ANT+, and proprietary 2.4 GHz networking. The BL654PA module offers extended wireless range with transmit power +18 dBm, configurable down to -26 dBm.

The BL654PA module provides design flexibility with several programming options, including Laird’s smartBASIC language. The smartBASIC language, ideal for memory-constrained applications, cuts time to market by enabling fast and efficient Bluetooth Low Energy development. It also acts as a bridge between software and hardware, allowing an application to work on any smartBASIC radio. Available with either an internal trace antenna or external IPEX MHF4 connector, the module is ideal for applications such as beacons, medical peripherals, industrial monitors, smart home, and other Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The BL654PA module is supported by the BL654PA development kits, also available with either an internal trace antenna or external IPEX MHF4 connector. Enabling rapid wireless connectivity prototyping, the kit offers multiple power supply options, including USB, external DC supply, and batteries.
