Nordic’s nRF52832 multiprotocol SoC combines an 64MHz, 32-bit Arm® Cortex® M4F processor with a 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio (supporting Bluetooth 5, ANT™, and proprietary 2.4GHz RF protocol software) featuring -96dB RX sensitivity, with 512kB Flash memory and 64kB RAM. The nRF52832 SoC is supplied with Nordic’s S132 SoftDevice, a Bluetooth 5-certifed RF software protocol stack for building advanced Bluetooth LE applications.
“We selected the Nordic nRF52832 SoC-based module because of the SoC’s Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity, low power consumption, large memory, and affordability,” says Gordon Williams, Espruino Director and Lead Engineer.
“The support on the DevZone and from Nordic engineers has been great. The level of communication has meant designing Nordic solutions into new products has been very simple.”
