nRF52840 - Advanced multi-protocol SoC

High-end Bluetooth 5/Zigbee/Thread/802.15.4/ANT/2.4GHz multiprotocol SoC

The nRF52840 System-on-Chip (SoC) is a Bluetooth 5 (Bluetooth low energy), IEEE 802.15.4, ANT+ and 2.4GHz proprietary wireless connectivity solution.Bluetooth 5 ready SoC from Nordic redefines scope for smart home, IoT, and wearables by delivering 4x range, 2x bandwidth, and enhanced security with on-chip ARM CryptoCell cryptographic accelerator

The nRF52840 is designed around an ARM Cortex-M4 CPU with floating Point unit (FPU) and has 1MB flash with cache and 256kB RAM. As such it has the ability to support complex and demanding applications as a single chip solution. It offers a wealth of peripherals that include NFC, USB and multiple interface options including Quad SPI (QSPI). Security is paramount in today's IoT designs and the nRF52840 has high-end security features included to achieve best in clas security with an ARM CryptoCEll cryptographic system on chip and a full AES 128-bit encryption suite.
