N550M8CC mit v3 chip S210V5.0 Description

Based on Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF51422 SoC, the N5 ANT SoC module series offers support for both ANT® and Bluetooth® low energy and enables both protocols to run concurrently.

The N5 ANT SoC module series starts with the M8 type in a 14.0mm x 9.8mm x 2.0mm LGA (Land Array Grid) package. A compact design meeting market requirements for small, light and wearable, the N5 module is a turnkey system hardware solution including antenna, onboard 32k and 16M crystal clocks, DC-DC converter and 24 GPIOs with 6 analogue inputs.

N5 modules are pre-programmed with the following software components:

  • S210 SoftDevice (scalable ANT protocol stack with maximum 15 channels)
  • ANT network processor application
  • ANT-WP (Wireless Programming) bootloader

SoftDevices are protocol stack solutions from Nordic Semiconductor for the nRF51 SoCs. There are multiple SoftDevice choices available from the Nordic Semiconductor web site. The ANT network processor application offers the standard ANT serial interface front-end that is connectable to an external application controller. The ANT-WP bootloader allows over-the-air updates of any software components on the N5 module.

The N5 module pre-programmed image can be easily replaced via the onboard SWD interface pins using off-the-shelf ARM programming tools or over the air using the pre-loaded ANT-WP bootloader.

Pin compatible options for the 20mm x 20mm AP2 or C7 modules from Garmin are also available. In these options, N5 M8 models are soldered on carrier boards that are pin compatible to the previous modules. Current AP2 or C7 module customers can easily use these models to evaluate the hardware and upgrade their final products. 

The N5 module series, if loaded with ANT and/or BLUETOOTH low energy stack, has been certified to comply with radio regulation or standards covering major markets include North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. The N5 ANT SoC modules series has also been qualified by the BLUETOOTH SIG.

The N5 ANT SoC Module Starter Kit, sold via the same distribution channels, is ideal for out-of-the box evaluation and development.
