Amazon Sidewalk qualification
Works with Amazon Sidewalk
Sidewalk over Bluetooth LE
Sidewalk over sub-GHz
Nordic SoC in combination with a Semtech sub-GHz transceiver
A Nordic SoC as the host provides best-in-class BLE communication, which is used by Amazon Sidewalk to connect devices to the network. Bluetooth LE is well known as the low-power, short-range wireless communication technology ideally suited for IoT devices. This enables developers to use our nRF Connect SDK, the scalable, unified software development kit for the nRF52840, and build products based on all our nRF52, nRF53, and nRF91 Series wireless devices. It enables developers to build software optimized for size and performance on devices with limited memory, as well as more sophisticated and feature-rich software for more advanced devices and applications.
The Semtech transceiver provides communication over the sub-GHz spectrum. The sub-GHz spectrum has a longer range and is less susceptible to interference, making it well-suited for communication over longer distances or in areas with much interference.
Sidewalk in sub-GHz provides two options:
- Sidewalk over LoRa – provides the longest possible range with low data throughput
- Sidewalk over FSK – a long range option which provides higher data throughput than Sidewalk over LoRa but its range is shorter
Get started developing
nRF Connect SDK and Sidewalk
To get the most out of Amazon Sidewalk we made it easy to integrate the Amazon Sidewalk repository into our nRF Connect SDK.
You can find the getting started documentation here.
