Product introduction:

describe

The RC355A is an Ultra-low power, full performance, cost-effective Bluetooth low energy module based on the BluenRG-LP SoC from ST Semiconductor. With an ARM Cortex-M0, embedded 2.4GHz transceiver, and integrated antenna, the RC355A provides a complete RF solution with no additional RF design, allowing faster time to market. Providing full use of the BluenRG-LP’s capabilities and peripherals, the RC355A can power the most demanding applications, all while simplifying designs and reducing BOM costs.It is compliant with Bluetooth® Low Energy SIG core specification version 5.2 addressing point-to-point connectivity and Bluetooth Mesh networking and allows large-scale device networks to be established in a reliable way. It targets 2.4-GHz Bluetooth low energy systems, proprietary 2.4-GHz systems, Human-Interface Devices (keyboard, mouse, and remote control), sports and leisure equipment, mobile phone accessories and consumer electronics.
