Nordic Semiconductor Launches Accessible Bluetooth 5 SoC

Nordic Semiconductor has extended its nRF52 series of high-performance Bluetoothlow energy Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) with the addition of a peripheral and memory-optimized variant, the nRF52810, that represents the most accessible, single-chip Bluetooth 5 solution available on the market.


The nRF52810 SoC brings the key performance benefits of Bluetooth 5 to the most cost-sensitive, high-volume applications. These include: 2x the data bandwidth (2Mbps) compared with the Bluetooth low energy implementation of Bluetooth 4.2; and 8x the broadcasting ability with advertising extensions that increase the advertising packet payload size to 251 bytes for more efficient data transfer, particularly in beacon applications.


Example target applications include network-connected sensors and beacon building blocks for the IoT, low-cost wearables, low-cost wireless mice and keyboards for computers and tablets, toys, disposable medical monitoring devices, and basic RF remote controls.
