3.2
Power Supply
The module is designed to operate within a 2.3V to 3.6V voltage range. User should ensure a proper
filtering of its power supply: a ferrite bead, connected to a shunt capacitor to the ground (10uF
typically) is a good practice.
3.3
Clocking
The module embeds a 26MHz for Bluetooth® Low Energy application.
3.4
Reset
The module reset input is directly connected to the microcontroller, and pulled down (the module
has an active high reset signal).
To ensure a proper reset of the radio controller, the reset signal should remain high for at least 10ms.

The antenna keep out zone must be respected by all means. If the module cannot be implemented as
recommended in chapter 7, then the antenna keep out zone must correspond to a no-copper region
on every layer of the PCB.
The user must deliver a low-noise power supply to the module, without AC ripple voltage. Noisy
supply voltages must come with a decoupling circuit (serial ferrite bead connected to a shunt
capacitor to ground).
The product should be mechanically stressed when installed.
Refer to the recommended design when designing a board.
8.2
Installation notes
Reflow soldering is possible, according to the recommendations in chapter 5.
Do not wash the product.
8.3
