  • The company claims that ‘RYZ012 teams with Renesas’ sensor solutions would also offer an end-to-end, device-to-cloud ecosystem
  • This module will be certified for use in the U.S., Canada, EU, and Japan
  • This also includes a 32-bit microcontroller with an integrated 512kB flash memory and 64kB SRAM for application support

According to a report, Renesas Electronic Corporation released simple shipment availability of the new RYZ012 Bluetooth model targeting ultra-low power IoT applications. 

This is the first Bluetooth Low Energy 5 module released by the company. It would be integrating a 2.4 GHz RF transceiver supporting the IEEE802. 15.4 multi-standard wireless protocol, Bluetooth Low Energy (LE), Bluetooth LE Mesh, and ZigBee.

It features a power draw of only 0.4µA during deep sleep (without SRAM retention) allowing customers to extend battery life. This also includes a battery monitor to measure battery capacity and detect low power in battery-operated devices.

The benefit 

Roger Wendelken, Senior Vice President, Head of MCU Business, IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit at Renesas said “The RYZ012 module complements our IoT connectivity solutions, featuring ultra-low power in a small form factor, designed to target a wide range of IoT, connected home, asset tracking, and cost-sensitive applications.” He also added that the ‘RYZ012 teams with Renesas’ sensor solutions would also offer an end-to-end, device-to-cloud ecosystem.

Specifications 

The RYZ012 module also supports the 2.4 Ghz IoT standards without the requirement for an external DSP. This also reduces the number of external component required and the overall cost in system integration. 

The RYZ012 module includes a 32-bit microcontroller with an integrated 512kB flash memory and 64kB SRAM for application support. It comes in two versions : with and without an integrated antenna. This also allows for implementation flexibility and the option for longer wireless range requirements.
