NEW PRODUCT – nRF52840 Bluetooth Low Energy Module with USB – MDBT50Q-1M


If you have a custom PCB design and you’d like to add a little Bluetooth Low Energy, this module is ultra compact and easy to use. It contains a Nordic nRF52832 Cortex M4 chip that comes integrated with BLE radio, USB as well as most of the supporting circuitry and even a chip antenna. The whole thing is in a tin and comes with FCC, CE and TELEC certifications.

This chip is quite a beast, with a ton of FLASH, SRAM, peripherals and best of all … native USB support! No need for an external USB-serial converter chip. However, given that it uses under-pads instead of castellated pads, you cannot hand-solder it, you’ll need a stencil and hot air or a reflow oven.

Please note! The module comes with a blank chip – this is for people who are comfortable programming the chips themselves with a J-Link programmer and the Nordic SDK. We don’t provide any firmware to go along with it!

This is the same module we use for the Adafruit nRF52840 Feather so if you’d like to see a possible reference design for this module, check out the PCB files here!

Of course the best way to program these chips is with the Nordic SDK. This chip also has some basic Arduino supportCircuitPython support, and is supported by MyNewt. Either way you go (SDK/CircuitPython/Arduino) you’ll still need to solder this onto a PCB and load code via a SWD programmer.
