Best-in-class ANT SoCs

ANT flagship SoC

The nRF5340 SoC is our ANT flagship. It is the world’s first wireless SoC with two Arm® Cortex®-M33 processors. The combination of two flexible processors and the advanced feature set makes it the ideal choice for advanced ANT applications. The nRF5340 is an all-in-one SoC, including a superset of the most prominent nRF52® Series features. Features like Bluetooth® 5.3, high-speed SPI, QSPI, USB, up to 105 °C operating temperature, and more, are combined with more performance, memory and, integration, while minimizing current consumption. It also offers security features such as trusted execution, root-of-trust, and secure key storage.

nRF52 Series

The nRF52 Series consists of seven multiprotocol SoCs that integrate a powerful yet efficient 64 MHz Arm Cortex-M4 CPU. Flash memory range from 192 KB to 1024 KB while RAM range from 24 KB to 256 KB. The nRF52 Series offers simpler cost-effective options and highly advanced options, all with ultra-low power consumption. All nRF52 Series SoCs can run the ANT protocol, but we currently have solutions for the nRF52810, nRF52832, and nRF52840 SoCs. 

Concurrent ANT and Bluetooth Low Energy support

The more advanced nRF52 Series SoCs and the nRF5340 SoC can run the ANT and Bluetooth LE protocols concurrently. The radio time is time-sliced and shared between the protocols. The scheduling is autonomous and connections are maintained. Leverage the interoperability of our Bluetooth LE stack and let a Bluetooth LE device, such as a smartphone, interact with the ANT network.
