Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 Multi-Protocol SoC

Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52840 Multi-Protocol SoC is an ultra-low power, highly flexible SoC for short-range wireless applications, including advanced wearables, IoT devices, advanced remote controls, and gaming controllers. The nRF52840 supports Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth Low Energy, Thread and other 802.15.4 protocols, ANT, ANT+, and proprietary 2.4 GHz protocols. The SoC is based on an Arm Cortex-M4F with 1MB flash, 256kB RAM, and support for DSP instruction, providing powerful computation for complex algorithms. The nRF52840 can run from a 1.7 V to 5.5 V supply, and all peripherals have an independent and automated clock and power management to minimize power consumption. The SoC also features an Arm TrustZone CryptoCell providing cryptographic functions for robust security.
