It’s always quite fun to think of how wireless Communications in the past weren’t quite as prevalent as they are today, and how many of us enjoyed sending and receiving ringtones and tiny images via Infrared connections long before Bluetooth had been properly developed for consumer use. Fortunately, those days are quite far in the past now, and in modern times, we now have an exceptionally wide range of different options for communicating wirelessly, from the GSM, GPS and GPRS that is constantly active in our mobile devices, to the WiFi Connections available in almost all homes and even some public spaces too.

This is why we’re always excited to get cool Modules like these tiny but powerful nRF51822 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Modules, which are Surface Mount modules designed specifically to make wireless communications as easy as possible, while maintaining an extremely tiny form factor, a very low weight, as well as Ultra Low Power operations. This opens up some really cool opportunities for building exciting wireless projects, with a particular emphasis on projects like Wearable Tech’, Bluetooth sensor networks, smart appliance monitoring and control, as well as many other applications in which low power and small form factor are necessities.

If you’ve been eager to start experimenting with Bluetooth communications, want to equip some old appliances with modern smart capabilities, or if you already have a good idea of how to upgrade an existing Electronics project with wireless comm’s, these handy little modules are the ideal solution to let you do just that.

NRF51822 Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Module - Surface Mount

When it comes to producing unique electronics components and modules, there are very few brands that can provide the quality that Waveshare can. Based in the Futian District in Shenzhen, China, Waveshare are experts in developing electronics to a high standard of quality, which have been thoroughly tested to work seamlessly with corresponding development platforms and systems – such as the E-Ink HATs for Raspberry Pi’s.

What we love most about Waveshare is how they are dedicated to providing quality products, and have moved away from the typical “Made in China” stigma – cheap products with cheap parts and components. Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
