TAIYO YUDEN Approximately Triples the Communications Range of Bluetooth® 5 Compatible Wireless Communications Module


TOKYO, Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD. announced the launch of the new Bluetooth®*1 5 compatible wireless communications module, EYSKDNZWB (9.6×12.9×1.4 mm). This product is best suited for outdoor-use security devices, IoT devices used in large factories, and IoT-related devices that require long-distance communications capability such as physical distribution terminals.

EYSKDNZWB, TAIYO YUDEN's latest Bluetooth module with integrated high performance PCB antenna.

EYSKDNZWB can support a communication range that is three times*2 as long as our existing product EYSKBNZWB (15.4×10.0×2.0 mm), which supports the long-range function newly added in Bluetooth® 5, by combining our proprietary advanced antenna technology, small-devices design technique, and high-density design technique.

EYSKDNZWB will also be introduced at MWC19 Los Angeles from October 22-24, 2019 at Los Angeles Convention Center in TAIYO YUDEN (U.S.A.)'s exhibition booth #3051. Mass production of the products will commence in November 2019, with a sample price of 3,000 yen per unit*3.

Technology Background
IoT-related devices are required to operate at extremely low power consumption when used in, for example, sensor networks. Most such devices use Bluetooth® technology as a wireless communications standard with low power consumption. In addition, implementing IoT devices used in factories or outdoor areas requires wireless communications modules that support a long communication range due to the long distance between sensor nodes and hubs and the existence of many obstacles such as walls. In wireless communications that utilize radio waves, however, there is a trade-off between communications range and power consumption. The difficulty in improving these factors simultaneously has been an ongoing issue.

The newly launched EYSKDNZWB is approximately three times longer than the existing EYSKBNZWB in the wireless communications range, with the same power consumption maintained, but made approximately 40% smaller by combining TAIYO YUDEN's proprietary advanced antenna technology, small-devices design technique, and high-density design technique. This product will contribute to expanding communication range with the benefit of Bluetooth® 5 low power consumption, which will allow IoT devices to be implemented in sensor networks in large areas such as factories.

TAIYO YUDEN will continue to develop more multifunctional and reliable products to expand its product lineup in response to market needs.
