BM832E, nRF52832 BLE 5 Module with u.FL
Full Feature BLE 5 module at the lowest cost
By using 2-sided PCB, BM832E has minimum BOM cost and is made in production line dedicated for Bluetooth modules with high production and quality control efficiency, the cost of using BM832E module can be lower than designing-in SoC at any quantity.
However, it is a full feature module. All 32 GPIOs of nRF52832 can be accessed. Inductors required for DCDC converted are integrated. An u.FL connector is used for connection to an external antenna.
