    Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is now stocking the BL5340 multi-core multi-protocol Bluetooth® modules from Laird Connectivity. Featuring the Nordic Semiconductor nRF5340 system-on-chip (SoC), the modules include a dual-core Arm® Cortex®-M33 microcontroller to simultaneously support wireless connectivity and end applications.

    The Laird Connectivity BL5340 modules, available from Mouser Electronics, highlight the many hardware capabilities of the nRF5340 SoC, including support for Bluetooth 5.2 Low Energy, 802.15.4 (Thread and Zigbee), and NFC. The Cortex-M33 microcontroller includes two cores, each supporting their own power management system, enabling designers to use one core solely for wireless operations and the other for application needs.

    The BL5340 modules come with enhanced security from Arm TrustZone®, Arm CryptoCell-312, and more. Other features include USB access, random number generator, temperature sensor, inter-processor communication, and watchdog timer. The modules include integrated PCB antenna options for overall design simplicity or trace pin variants for connecting external antennas. The modules support power supply from 1.7 V to 5.5 V and offer low-power performance with consumption of just 5.1 mA transmit and 2.7 mA receive. 

    Mouser also offers the DVK-BL5340 development kits, which provide a platform for rapid wireless connectivity prototyping, making it possible for customers to test and validate the module’s hardware interfaces. For maximum development flexibility, the modules support programming via the Nordic nRFConnect SDK and Zephyr RTOS.

    The BL5340 modules come certified to FCC, CE, ISED, RCM, MIC, UKCA, and Bluetooth SIG, and support applications such as asset tracking, smart buildings, secure medical peripherals, and industrial automation.
