MSC Technologies presents worldwide smallest Bluetooth chip from EM Microelectronic
The 5 mm ² EM9304 Bluetooth chip is a SoC with an integrated ARC EM4 32 bit MCU with 24 MHz clock rate. The on-chip powerful RF baseband offers -96 dbm sensitivity and +5 dbm output performance. The compact chip is very power-efficient with 5.5 mA in the transmit mode and 0.9 μA in the connected sleep mode. The Bluetooth chip can be used as stand-alone solution in connection with various sensors or as HCI chip combined with a microcontroller. The integrated AES-128 Hardware Encryption Engine and the True Random Number Generator both protect the IoT solution. A memory range of 136 kB ROM for the Link Layer and Stack and of 28 kB OTP for parameters, profiles and applications is available.
The SPI and I²C interfaces and up to 12 GPIO offer numerous possibilities for sensor applications. With only eight extern components, the design can be realized with low additional costs and space requirements.
The Bluetooth v5.0 low energy device features a complete on-chip Link Layer and the stack within the ROM. Up to eight simultaneous connections are supported. A later firmware update over the Air is possible.
Hard- and software Development Kits, antenna design services and certification support are offered.
Typical applications are IoT based systems and mobile devices. The EM9304 is specified for the extended temperature range -40 °C to +85 °C and also best suited for industrial sensor systems.
