Nordic announced their 6th multi-protocol solution of nRF52 series with nRF52820, which supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Zigbee and 2.4GHz proprietary wireless connectivity.
Like other nRF52 siblings, nRF52820 highlights a powerful 64MHz 32bit Arm Cortex-M4 processor, includes 256Kb Flash Memory and 32Kb RAM, features of Bluetooth 5.2, 5.1 and 5 including long range and high-throughput of 2Mbits per second, as well as direction finding, low energy power control and low energy isochronous channels.
A full speed (12Mbits per second) USB 2.0 interface and 1.7~5.5V operation voltage bring a wide range of commercial and industrial wireless applications to nRF52820. To support nRF52820’s development, Nordic released SoftDevice S112, a new memory-optimized central stack. S112 now released as a alpha and will have full SDK (SDK V16.0.0) support coming in Q2 2020.
Mesh Network has grabbed the highlight of BLE development.
To keep all Nordic users get the updated information post, Raytac keep closely watching for every step Nordic achieved and summarized current status in below.
Raytac is proceeding the EE policy, refer to Easy Employ, which aims to provide customers an easy and friendly developing environment and time to market efficiency.
The critical factors to assist customers dramtically, not surprised, is the certificate of Bluetooth specification and Regional safety regulation compliance. Not only because of the cost, but also the knowledge and time consuming.
Nordic Semiconductor announces that Raytac Corporation has selected Nordic’s nRF52832 wafer level-chip scale package (WL-CSP) System-on-Chip (SoC) for its compact Bluetooth low energy, Bluetooth® 5 ready MDBT42V and MDBT42V-P modules……… The modules comes in an 8.4 by 6.4 by 1.75mm form factor and offers a high performance ceramic chip antenna delivering a wireless connectivity range of over 100m in open space according to Raytac.
