NINA-B3 Series - Bluetooth 5 low energy modules with open CPU or pre-loaded firmware

Compact stand-alone Bluetooth 5 Low Energy modules offering either open CPU architecture or pre-flashed u-blox connectivity software

The u-blox NINA-B3x series comprises two types of module - NINA-B30x and NINA-B31x:

NINA-B30x

NINA-B30x series are small, stand-alone Bluetooth low energy microcontroller unit (MCU) modules. NINA-B30 features full Bluetooth 5, a powerful Arm® Cortex®-M4 with FPU, and state-of-the-art power performance. The embedded low power crystal in NINA-B30 improves the power consumption by enabling optimal power save modes.

Both variants are open CPU modules that enable customer applications to run on the built-in Arm Cortex-M4 with FPU. With 1 MB flash and 256 kB RAM, they offer the best-in-class capacity for customer applications on top of the Bluetooth low energy stack. Applications can include Bluetooth low energy services such as GATT, beacons, and mesh. Additionally, the modules support NFC™ and 802.15.4 with Thread. The modules have a range of wired interfaces, including UART, SPI, I2 C, I2 S, USB, QDEC, PDM, PWM, and ADC.

NINA-B302 comes with an internal antenna while NINA-B301 has a pin for use with an external antenna. The internal PIFA antenna is specifically designed for the small NINA form factor and provides an extensive range, independent of ground plane and component placement.

Features:

  • Full Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, and 802.15.4 Thread
  • Open CPU architecture with powerful MCU for customer applications
  • Pin compatible with other NINA modules
  • Superior security functionality
  • Global certification • Multiple antenna options

NINA-B31x

The NINA-B31 series are small, stand-alone Bluetooth low energy wireless microcontroller unit (MCU) modules. NINA-B31 features full Bluetooth 5, a powerful Arm® Cortex®-M4 with FPU, and state-of-the-art power performance. The embedded low power crystal in NINA-B31 improves the power consumption by enabling optimal power save modes. The NINA-B31 modules are delivered with u-blox connectivity software that provides support for u-blox Bluetooth low energy Serial Port Service, GATT client and server, beacons, NFC™, and simultaneous peripheral and central roles - all configurable from a host using AT commands.

The NINA-B31x modules provide top grade security, thanks to secure boot, which ensures the module only boots up with original u-blox software.

NINA-B312 comes with an internal antenna while NINA-B311 has a pin for use with an external antenna. The internal PIFA antenna is specifically designed for the small NINA form factor and provides an extensive range, independent of ground plane and component placement.

Features:

  • Full Bluetooth 5
  • u-blox advanced connectivity software pre-flashed
  • Pin compatible with other NINA modules
  • Superior security functionality
  • Global certification
  • Multiple antenna options
