High-performance version added to the lineup of Bluetooth® low energy modules with an embedded small antenna
Bluetooth® is rapidly spreading as technology that supports the Internet of Things (IoT). With support for this technology becoming standard on smartphone and cell phone operating systems, Bluetooth® is being embedded in devices and used in ways that were previously unimaginable.
This has diversified requirements for Bluetooth® modules, creating demand for smaller sizes, embedded software, and a built-in antenna.
TAIYO YUDEN is an electronic component company that has grown with the history of Bluetooth® and was one of the first companies in the world to acquire qualification for a full module compliant with Bluetooth® v1.1. To meet the diversified needs, we have just launched low-power consumption modules with higher-performance CPU and higher-capacity memory compared to our existing products. Compact developer’s boards and kits are also available.

Choosing a module that is best suited to your needs
Use the chart below to find out which Bluetooth® low energy module is right for you.
IoT, which is taking the world by storm, and Bluetooth® low energy, which supports it
Bluetooth® embedded devices, whose total shipment is expected to reach 4.6 billion units in 2018, is one of the important elements to support IoT. Bluetooth® low energy realized extreme suppression of power, allowing devices to run for over a year with one coin-cell battery. It is rapidly expanding business opportunities with ideas for being used for standard smart phone peripherals as well as various other development devices.
Bluetooth® low energy Module
(Bluetooth® low energy technology)
TAIYO YUDEN is an electronic component company that has followed the history of Bluetooth® that developed a module compliant with Bluetooth® v1.0 from the following year of the establishment of Bluetooth® SIG, and was one of the first in the world to acquire qualification of a full module compliant with Bluetooth® v1.1. In particular we incorporate high quality components such as capacitors, inductors, and antennas of the interior of Bluetooth® low energy modules that fully use multilayer techniques, high frequency technology, and high density mounting technology, which are the strengths of TAIYO YUDEN. In this way we maintain the high level of Bluetooth® low energy modules with miniaturization, low power consumption, and low cost.
The period until making into a product is decisive factor with Bluetooth®
TAIYO YUDEN has various support systems for the realization of early development
The thing that must be considered the most when incorporating Bluetooth® low energy into devices and equipments of a company is the "Time to Market". In other words, it is the challenge of reducing the time until the realization and commercialization. With developments that require wireless communication, there are tons of tasks that take up the time of the designer such as the tuning of the antenna, certification by the Radio Law, and software development. And so TAIYO YUDEN realized the "steps for designing easily and developing in an easy to understand way". We support development for quick realizations.
The expanding application of Bluetooth® low energy
The Bluetooth®, which functions in place of cable connection while maintaining high-level security, is expanding its way of use from the standard concept of a peripheral for smart phones to short distance wireless technology of development devices in various industries such as health care and home security.
