POWER-UP PCBA #8: Welcome the new year with manufacturing discounts on MDBT50Q-1MV2 nRF52840 based BLE modules

Bluetooth modules have always been popular and fundamental to the field of IoT. As a keen advocate of IoT, Seeed understand the importance of Bluetooth and realize the potential benefits that can be passed onto the Seeed Fusion users.

MDBT50Q-1MV2 is a popular Bluetooth module suitable for applications not limited to LE audio, professional lighting, connected wearables and more complex IoT applications. To assist developers, especially in these financially troubling times, Seeed Fusion have added MDBT50Q-1MV2 to the Seeed OPL at a special discounted rate only available to Seeed Fusion PCBA users. As well as the cost savings, by stocking the module in the Seeed OPL, faster PCBA production from as little as 7 working days is that much easier to achieve.

What is a BLE module based on Nordic nRF52?

nRF52 is the second generation series of Bluetooth® low-power system-on-chip (SoC) devices from Nordic Semiconductor, a leading wireless technology company specializing in IoT. nRF52840 SoC is the most advanced member of the nRF52 series SoC family. It meets the challenges of complex applications that require protocol concurrency and a rich variety of peripheral devices and functions. It covers the baseline of Bluetooth 5 devices from low complexity to highly specialized devices. The chip contains the ARMTrustZone®CryptoCell encryption unit, which provides a wide range of encryption options and can be executed efficiently independently of the CPU.

The MDBT50Q-1MV2 is a BT5.2 and BT5.1 stack Bluetooth Low Energy module is designed based on the Nordic nRF52840 SoC solution. With it’s compact size, flexibility and FCC, IC, CE pre-certification, the MDBT50Q-1MV2 is highly suited to a wide range of Bluetooth® low power consumption and 2.4GHz ultra-low-power wireless applications.

The MDBT53-1MV2 Bluetooth module in the real world

Wireless connectivity underpins the internet of things and industry 4.0, from personal devices to networked machines and smart cities, wireless is the enabler. Bluetooth® Low Energy provides a low-cost, interoperable wireless connection for compact battery-powered applications, meanwhile minimizing the energy required to transmit data.

MDBT50Q-1MV2 is now available in the Seeed OPL with up to 35% off

As you may know, Seeed Fusion reached a milestone last year, with the massive expansion of the Open Parts Library to more than 150,000 components for faster and cheaper PCBA. By using these locally available parts, in addition to lowering BOM costs, PCB assembly can be fast-tracked and the entire turnkey PCBA lead time reduced to as little as 7 working days.

The Seeed PCBA OPLs are essential to make full use of Seeed Fusion’s PCB assembly services. And nothing motivates us more than providing cheaper, faster and more convenient turnkey PCB assembly.

With MDBT50Q-1MV2 and MDBT53-1M in the OPL, simply add it to your BOM file to take advantage of the special price and if all parts are from the OPLs, since there is no need to import the parts or purchase them externally, assembly can begin as soon as the PCBs arrive.

Seeed OPL$7.95$6.95$6.75$6.55$6.35$6.05
MPRP $9.59 $9.59 $9.59 $9.59 $9.59 $9.59
SAVE$1.64 $264 $1,420 $3,040 $16,200 $35,400

The discounts start from as little as one piece. Originally priced at $9.59 USD, get one MDBT50Q-1M BLE module for just $7.95 USD and up to 35% off the more you buy.

Being part of the Seeed OPL, Seeed maintains the inventory and purchases the modules in bulk. And as official authorized distributors of Raytac products, the BLE modules we sell are straight from Raytac, and after-sales services are provided to protect your interests.
