nRF5 SDK Maintenance mode

Software development kit for the nRF52 Series and nRF51 Series SoCs

The nRF5 SDK is in maintenance mode, see nRF Connect SDK and nRF5 SDK statement for more info. For new projects, we recommend the nRF Connect SDK.

The nRF5 SDK provides a rich developing environment for nRF51 and nRF52 Series SoCs. It includes a broad selection of drivers, libraries, examples, SoftDevices, and radio protocols.

The SDK is delivered as a plain .zip-archive, which makes it easy to install and gives you the freedom to choose the IDE and compiler.

All code examples included in the SDK are tailored to compile and run on Nordic Semiconductor's Development Kits.
