TAIYO YUDEN Commercializes three Bluetooth® 5 modules

World’s smallest Bluetooth® module with an antenna

(PresseBox) (Tokyo, ) TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. has announced the launch of Bluetooth®*1 5 modules EYSHCNZWZ (9.6×12.9×2.0), EYSHJNZWZ (5.1×11.3×1.3mm), and EYSHSNZWZ (3.25×8.55×0.9mm).

These wireless communication modules, compatible with the latest wireless communication standard Bluetooth® 5, are ideal for various small, thin devices including wearable devices, healthcare equipment, smartphone peripherals, and IoT-related devices.

The EYSHSNZWZ module that we have commercialized on this occasion utilizes our unique shield mold technology to reduce its volume to about one third that of EYSHJNZXZ (5.1 x 11.3 x 1.3 mm), the smallest module from our conventional module lineup. This represents the world’s smallest volume for Bluetooth® modules with an integrated antenna. (As of August 2017, according to our own research.)

TAIYO YUDEN TECHNO SOLUTIONS CO., LTD. (Takasaki City, Gunma Prefecture, Japan) will commence mass production of these products in August 2017. A sample of each model will cost 3,000 yen*2.

Technology Background
Most devices that require short-range wireless communication (e.g. wearable devices, healthcare equipment, smartphone peripherals) are compatible with the Bluetooth® wireless communication standard. Notably, Bluetooth® 5 has drawn public attention due to its communication speed, which is twice as fast as Bluetooth® V4.2. The size of some conventional Bluetooth® modules is not suitable for wearable devices that are the size and shape of pens, rings, or glasses; demand for much smaller modules is high.

Against this backdrop, TAIYO YUDEN has added the EYSHCNZWZ, EYSHJNZWZ, and EYSHSNZWZ modules compatible with the latest standard Bluetooth® 5 to its product lineup. EYSHSNZWZ in particular utilizes our unique shield mold technology to achieve a thickness of 0.9 mm (about one third the volume of EYSHJNZXZ (5.1 x 11.3 x 1.3 mm), the smallest of our conventional modules). It is the world’s smallest Bluetooth® module with an integrated antenna.

TAIYO YUDEN will continue to meet market needs and enhance its product lineup by increasing functionality and reliability.
