The STEVAL-IDB008V1M plug-and-play kit enables rapid evaluation and product development leveraging the BlueNRG-M2SA module. The board combines the BlueNRG-M2 module with sensors including a MEMS pressure and temperature sensor and motion sensors suitable for 9-axis sensor-fusion library. There is also a low-latency, low-power ADPCM codec, ready to use with BlueVoice middleware for voice over BLE streaming. Arduino R3 connectors are provided, which allow access to all the module’s peripherals and enable users to further extend functionality by adding expansion shields. The associated development-software package, STSW-BLUENRG1-DK, contains a simple and intuitive BlueNRG-Navigator GUI (Graphical User Interface) that lets users bring their applications to life without an external programmer or hardware. The kit also simplifies integration of the BlueNRG-M2SA module with ST’s STSW-BNRG-MESH software to explore emerging application opportunities in industrial and smart-building markets. With its operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C and 5 dBm RF output power, the BlueNRG-M2SA module can be powered directly with a pair of AAA batteries or any power source from 1.7 to 3.6 V.
