BLYST Nano is a new tiny ARM Cortex-M4F module which has been created offering Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, Bluetooth Mesh and 30 input and outputs. The module is now available to purchase on crowdsupply priced from $17 with free shipping throughout the US included for worldwide shipping available for an extra $8.

With a design based on the Nordic nRF52832 SoC, combining a low power 64 MHz ARM Cortex-M4F and the 2.4 GHz radio in a single chip, the BLYST Nano SoM (System on Module) is the perfect way to catch this new Bluetooth IoT wave driven by both Bluetooth 5 and Bluetooth Mesh.

BLYST Nano Module Features

Built-in ceramic antenna
Built-in coils for low power DC/DC mode
Built-in 32 MHz & 32.768 MHz crystal for low power
Dimensions: 10 x 7 x 1.6 mm
No extra PCB spaces or any external components required on users’ application board
All I/O pins of the nRF52832 are exposed to pads around the edges of the module to take full advantage of the nRF52832 and for easy assembly without compromise
FCC & CE certified
