Mouser Electronics, Inc., the global authorized distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is currently stocking the Murata Type ZY Design Kit, featuring the award-winning Type ZY Bluetooth SMART Module from Murata. Connected Worldmagazine recently named Murata’s Type ZY Bluetooth SMART Module as an IoT Innovations Award winner for summer 2015, in which winners were selected based on a variety of criteria, including most creative and technologically advanced products.
The Murata Type ZY Design Kit, available from Mouser Electronics, includes a motherboard, a daughterboard with mounted ZY module, and a J-Link debugging adapter. The motherboard includes a JTAG interface for programming and debugging, a USB interface which can also power the board, a USB-to-serial-port converter, and analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion circuitry. All I/O pins are exposed onto 2.54mm pin headers for easy prototyping. The design kit also includes software via download, which contains documentation, Keil tools with DA14580 peripherals, sample source codes, an OTP programming utility, and a tool-to-profile power consumption.
One of the most compact and ultra-low-power consumption Bluetooth® SMART modules in the industry, the Murata Type ZY Bluetooth SMART Module conforms to the Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) v4.1 standard, and includes built-in protocol stacks required for many types of Bluetooth low-energy communications. The 2.4GHz module features an integrated system clock, an onboard PCB Antenna, low-power operation, and iBeacon™ support. The Murata Type ZY Design Kit targets Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as health care and fitness devices, medical equipment, smartphone peripheral devices, remote controls, and wireless devices.
