A Bluetooth 5 SoC for everybody The nRF52810 is the third member of the nRF52 Series SoCs. It features a powerful CPU (ARM Cortex-M4), and together with the nRF52840 and nRF52832 it completes a lineup of Nordic’s Bluetooth 5 ready devices that together offer the full spectrum of possibilities when designing Bluetooth® 5 into your products. The nRF52810 supports key Bluetooth 5 features of high throughput (2Mbps) and increased broadcast capacity with advertising extensions (x 8), as an optimized solution that makes it attractive in a very wide range of applications from a performance and minimal Bill of Material (BOM) perspective. The nRF52810 and all nRF52 Series are flash-based SoCs and as such, fully support over the air firmware upgrades.
Stand-alone performance or network processor The nRF52810 uses the same hardware and software architecture as other nRF52 Series SoCs. This means migration between the nRF52 Series is straightforward and simple. It uses the ARM Cortex-M4 CPU and is capable of supporting demanding performance requirements. The nRF52810 has a reduced feature set compared to nRF52840 and nRF52832 and is an ideal compromise between advanced performance and functionality and cost. The nRf52810 is ideal for middle to lower tier applications and is the perfect companion network processor when adding Bluetooth 5 connectivity to designs that employ a significantly bigger main application processor to perform their function.
Bluetooth 5 – More speed, less energy The nRF52810 supports two of the three flagship features of Bluetooth 5, high Throughput Mode and Advertising Extensions. High throughput doubles the on-air data rate to 2Mbs offering new use cases and up to a 50% saving in energy usage. Advertising Extensions offers significant increases in broadcasting capacity (x8) for broadcast applications, including beacons.
Maximum re-use and easy migration The nRF52810 has binary compatible peripherals with other devices in the nRF52 and nRF51 Series for most functions. The common hardware and software architectures mean use and porting of existing code is straightforward, allowing developers to re-use firmware libraries they have developed previously with ease.
