ARM Cortex-M0 +

The phyWAVE-KW41Z radio module is based on the top model of the Kinetis-W series from NXP with ARM Cortex-M0 + CPU. The module is only 15 mm x 19 mm in size and therefore ideally suited for all applications where the smallest possible dimensions are required. Nevertheless, the phyWAVE already has integrated power management and supports input voltages of 0,9 V - 4,2 V. Thanks to Deep Sleep, it is also extremely energy-saving and ideal for energy harvesting or battery-operated applications. Chip antenna or U.FL connector are also already present on the module.

The phyWAVE-KW41Z supports Bluetooth Low Energy networks and 802.15.4-based networks such as Thread simultaneously. This multi-mode functionality enables direct communication with mobile devices via BLE and simultaneous integration into thread mesh networks.

  • Guaranteed availability of the module for at least 10 years
