T2M Lighting 8253 BLE5 MESH SoC

8253 BLE5 MESH SoC

Description and Features

The 8253 supports Bluetooth Low Energy ( up to Bluetooth 5), BLE Mesh and 2.4 Ghz proprietary standard. It allows easy connectivity with Bluetooth Smart Ready mobile phones, tablets, laptops, which supports BLE slave and master mode operation, including broadcast, encryption, connection updates, and channel map updates.

The 8253 integrates strong power balanced 32-bit MCU, BLE/2.4GHz Radio, 48kB SRAM, 512kB Flash, 14bit ADC with PGA, Analog and Digital Microphone input, stereo audio output, 6-channel PWM, one quadrature decoder (QDEC), flexible IO interfaces, and other peripheral blocks needed for Bluetooth Low Energy application development.

The 8253 also includes multi-stage power management design allowing ultra-low power operation and making it the ideal candidate for wearable and power-constraint applications. The 8253 has hardware OTA upgrades support and multiple booth switching, allowing convenient product feature roll outs and upgrades.
