2.4GHz RF and ANT products soon available in 2.6x2.7mm WLCSP options
December 20, 2010 // Julien Happich
Nordic Semiconductor said it will expand its 2.4GHz RF and ANT product range with the addition of a brand new line-up of wafer level chip scale package (WLCSP) options as small as 2.6x2.7mm in size and occupying up to 5x less footprint area. Sampling in Q1 2011 and available for volume orders in Q2 2011 will be the nRF24AP2 (1- and 8-channel) WLCSP and nRF24LE1 WLCSP (Flash or OTP) options.
The products will be designed to meet the highly space-constrained needs of both existing and emerging sports, fitness and health applications such as wireless watches, bike computers, sensors, hearing aids and other devices designed to be worn on or near the body.
The new nRF24LE1 WLCSP option (Flash or OTP) will be a 400µm (regular array) 32-ball pitch BGA measuring 2.7x2.7mm in footprint area for the Flash version and 2.6x2.7mm for the OTP version. Both devices are 0.5mm in thickness.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
