Exciting new features in nRF Connect SDK v1.8
nRF Connect SDK is Nordic's software development kit for developing both Bluetooth® Low Energy, Bluetooth® mesh, Thread, Zigbee, Matter and cellular IoT applications. nRF Connect SDK is a scalable solution that supports our nRF52, nRF53 and nRF91 Series.
In this webinar, Bjørn, Krzysztof and Martin will give a short introduction to the nRF Connect SDK, followed by the exciting new features in this latest release.

Duration: 45 min plus 15 min live Q&A
The recording is now available on-demand:
Some highlights include:
Experimental support for running the Bluetooth® LE Host and Bluetooth® LE Controller on the nRF5340 SoC in the network core with a full Bluetooth® LE Host API to the application core.
Experimental support for using any nRF52 Series SoC as a Bluetooth® LE network processor with a full Bluetooth® LE Host API to an external MCU.
Experimental support for Periodic Advertising in our SoftDevice Controller (i.e. Nordic's Bluetooth LE Controller). Periodic Advertising is a key feature for connectionless Bluetooth® Direction Finding and Bluetooth® LE Audio broadcast.
Support for 3-wire Packet Traffic Arbitration (PTA) interface in the nRF52 Series SoCs. 3-wire PTA is a common coexistence interface used by Wi-Fi radios.
Experimental support for 1-wire PTA interface on the nRF52 Series, which is specifically designed as a coexistance interface for the nRF9160 SiP.
Warning messages are now generated in the build output if any experimental features (Kconfig symbols) are enabled.
The Apple HomeKit repository has been updated to ADK v6.1 and is integrated with nRF Connect SDK v1.8. HomeKit over Bluetooth® LE and HomeKit over Thread are now supported on the nRF5340 SoC.
Support for Gazell, a proprietary 2.4 GHz wireless protocol, on all nRF52 Series SoCs.
