Nordic Semiconductor ASA is previewing its next generation ANT wireless single chip solutions - the nRF24AP2 family - including the first two products that will form part of the new range. The single-channel nRF24AP2 (nRF24AP2-1CH) will be a cost optimized product suitable for a wide range of simple wireless sensor applications from bike cadence up to heart rate and blood glucose monitoring. The more advanced 8-channel nRF24AP2 product (nRF24AP2-8CH) will be specifically designed for ANT hubs with up to 8 active wireless sensor channels. This will allow products like sports watches, bike computers and gym machines to connect to up 8 different sensors or users simultaneously. The nRF24AP2 family will provide a significant improvement in power consumption compared to the previous nRF24AP1 range. This includes a more than 20% reduction in peak current that yields a valuable extra power margin when working with small coin cell batteries. All new Nordic chips take advantage of the company's latest nRF24L01+ further enhanced transceiver core, which provides a range of benefits including substantial enhancements in wideband blocking and intermodulation, plus a new frequency agility mode. This will make the nRF24P2 family highly immune to disturbance from other 2.4GHz radios like Bluetooth® wireless technology and Wi-FiTM operating in the vicinity.,
