NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) today announced the availability of its QN9090 and QN9030 Bluetooth 5 System on Chip (SoC) with hardware compatible options for 802.15.4, Multiprotocol RF, and optional NFC technology. The latest additions to its QN series of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices enable next generation intelligent connected devices by achieving ultra-low power consumption and integrating a high-capacity CPU with a wide operating temperature range, a comprehensive mix of analog and digital peripherals and BLE mesh support.
The QN9090 and QN9030 devices are powered by an Arm® Cortex®-M4 running at 48MHz and include up to 640KB onboard flash and 152 KB SRAM, providing storage space and flexibility for complex applications and safe over-the-air (OTA) updates. The QN Series devices help accelerate development and time-to-market for developers creating products with rich features for diverse IoT applications such as personal healthcare devices, sports and fitness trackers, connected appliances, building and home automation, toys and gaming peripherals, as well as beacons and mesh networks.
As NXP’s BLE SoC with NFC integrated on chip, the QN9090T and QN9030T variants support out-of-band wireless communications to enable numerous use cases. By tapping an IoT device based on the QN9090T to a smartphone, tablet or other NFC reader device, a BLE connection can be quickly established, greatly simplifying the pairing process. The built in NFC NTAG eliminates the need for the tag to be powered and creates additional opportunities for diagnostics or device commissioning in stages of the device life cycle.
