* SaBLE-x-R2 is recommended for new designs

SaBLE-x is a certified Bluetooth® Smart module built to deliver unmatched RF and power performance. The module can deliver over twice the signal range of previous generation Bluetooth low energy technology, and can operate at nearly 1/3 the average power for a 1 second connection interval when compared to previous Bluetooth low energy modules.

Based on the new TI SimpleLink™ Bluetooth® Smart CC2640 wireless microcontroller (MCU), this self-contained module provides unmatched integration, including an ARM Cortex-M3 application processor, an ARM Cortex-M0 processor for the RF core, separate Sensor Processor Engine, FLASH memory, and both high- and low-speed clocks.

Key features:

  • Lowest power BLE Module available, operating at nearly 1/3 the avg. power for a 1 second connection interval vs. previous generations
  • Latest silicon technology delivers 7 dBm link margin improvement vs. current BLE modules
  • Features both an ARM Cortex-M3 processor for host applications and an ARM Cortex-M0 dedicated for the RF core
  • Dedicated Sensor Processor for even lower power operation
  • Integrated FLASH memory, BLE stack, and high- and low-speed clocks
  • Multiple certified antenna options
  • Trace, Dipole, FlexPIFA™, and FlexNotch
  • In-house certification of additional antennas at little or no cost
  • LSR's Developer Tool Suite features create value through simplification:
  • Serial-to-BLE host command set, including API, boot loader, and source code for both host and module

LSR's Development Kit for the SaBLE-x Bluetooth Smart module will provide you with a fast out-of-the-box experience with all the hardware you need, including adapter boards for development with TI or Arduino platforms. A simplified evaluation kit version is also available (Item # 450-0150).

Along with the Development Kit hardware, BLE developers can utilize LSR's Developer Tool Suite software. This suite of developer tools simplifies the work to integrate the SaBLE-x module with your host MCU through LSR's exclusive Serial-to-BLE API and Source Code, along with Boot Loader. Furthermore, the companion mobile app, ModuleLink for BLE, works seamlessly with the SaBLE-x Dev Board so you can range-test and test communications with any iOS or Android device. To learn more, scroll down for more information on the Developer Tool Suite and the ModuleLink for BLE mobile app.

The SaBLE-x Development Board features:

  • On-Board 3-Axis Accelerometer, Temperature, and Ambient Light Sensors
  • 3 Push Buttons for Input
  • 6 LED Indicators
  • External Memory: 4 MBit CMOS Serial Flash Memory with SPI interface to the SaBLE-x Module
  • Antenna: Either module's trace antenna or u.FL connector on Dev Board for external antenna
  • Power: On-board Coin Cell battery, USB cable, or external power
  • Pin-Outs to support both Arduino & TI Adapter Boards (included in Dev Kit)
