The new Nordic Semiconductor multiprotocol SoC nRF52833 is now offered at Rutronik UK. It supports Bluetooth 5.1, Bluetooth Mesh, 802.15.4, Thread, ZigBee and proprietary 2,4GHz protocols. For developing on the nRF52833, there is also a flexible single-board DK offered.
With a wide range of protocols, an extended temperature range of -40C to 105C, 512KB Flash and 128KB RAM and a powerful 64MHz Arm Cortex-M4F processor, the SoC is extremely versatile. Due to its Bluetooth 5.1 capable radio the ultra-low-power SoC supports direction-finding. Also, it incorporates various analogue and digital interfaces. Full speed 12Mbps USB, high-speed 32MHz SPI and up to plus 8dBm output power make the device a high-end member of the nRF52 series.
The DK provides access to all I/O and interfaces via connectors, four LEDs and four buttons are user-programmable. Hardware compatibility with the Arduino Uno Revision 3 standard makes it simple to use third-party shields. The kit includes an integrated PCB antenna and a connector for the included external NFC antenna. Due to the built-in Segger J-Link debugger it provides programming and debugging on both the on-board and external SoC through the debug out header. The DK supports Segger Embedded Studio, Keil, IAR and GCC IDEs and toolchains.
The SoC and the DK are ideal for applications including professional lighting, asset tracking and wayfinding, multiprotocol devices, mesh networks, wearables, smart home automation, toys, VR and AR, gaming, sports and fitness.
