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.
Raytac today announces the u.FL connector version module, MDBT42Q-U series which selects Nordic nRF52832 and nRF52810 SoC to provide the Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE, aka BLE) wireless connectivity for IoT applications.
When you start developing your firmware for your Nordic nRF52832 solution-based Raytac BLE module, you will (like on most other projects) bump into some difficulties.
The other day, we had yet another case where a simple thing caused major difficulties for even some of the brightest people – a customer couldn’t get their GPIO direction bit to work.
Although not too difficult to solve, it’s a common error that most customers end up having on our modules and that is because Pin 0.09 & 0.10 are set to NFC per Nordic’s default settings. In order to be able to use these pins as normal GPIOs, you will have to change those settings.
The two pins I am talking about are the ones linked to the NFC-part to the far left in the circuit example below:
So, to convert these two pins to normal GPIOs, here’s what you need to do:
In SES, you’ll need to add CONFIG_NFCT_PINS_AS_GPIOS.

Raytac is glad to announce that we has expanded our distributor network to CIS Countries (Russia), Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania. The distribution agreement covers sales, marketing, and support for Raytac Corporation’s full range of Modules lines, including Nordic’s proven nRF51 Series, nRF52 Series, and nRF52840 in the territory.
PR Electronics is a Distributor of Electronic components and Modules
with offices in Russia and Belarus. The company now has 51 employees and 4 sales offices.
With recent solid demand and positive feedback receiving from market, we strongly believe that IoT is the future to enhance people’s life.
With PR Electronics’s join of Raytac’s module distribution network, we truly expect he complementary of network portfolio can bring the opportunity and competitive advantage along with a speedy and convenient accessibility for developers.
Raytac is one of the most important 3rd party module maker listed in Nordic’s list located in Taiwan, also the one of the biggest module supplier all over the world.
With the passion Raytac’s team possessed, the effort is aimed to create the maximum benefits contributes by pre-certified modules.
Bluetooth QDID Granted:
BT4.1: MDBT40 Series
BT5 & BT4.2: MDBT42Q / MDBT42 / MDBT42V

To easy developers’s work, speed up the project schedule, lower down the total budget by deploy the module built in products just like a plug and play components is always the ultimate mission Raytac would like to dedicate to all developers.
A BT4.1 & BT4.2 & BT5 module maker based on Nordic nRF51 & nRF52 solution
All Raytac’s modules are designed, manufactured, and shipped from Taiwan, which is the best shelter from the trade war.
The emerging trade brawl between the United States and China has raised most customers’ worry. The trade standoff has become more heated in recent days by raising tariff imposed by US government.
Most US customers now are really worried about the current business is highly risk exposure under the conflict.
Raytac Corporation, unlike other modules suppliers has factory or OEM or shipped from China, but ALL Raytac’s modules are Made In Taiwan and Shipped from Taiwan!
Raytac provides all series of Nordic nRF51 & nRF52 solution with different form factor pre-certified modules. With a strong and professional wireless technology background, Raytac has drew the highest attention and reputation in IoT field among Bluetooth Low Energy (Aka BT5, BT4.2. BT4.1 & BT4.0) and IEEE 802.15.3.
Are you still worried about the ramping up trade war in terms of tariff damages the competitive advantage of your company and products?
Why not take a look of Raytac’s module to escape from the business risk!
