nRF ProgrammerMobile App

Firmware updates made easy

The nRF Programmer allows users to upload precompiled firmware samples from the nRF Connect SDK to your Nordic Thingy:53 over Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE), without connecting to a PC or external programmer. This allows you to easily test out different applications and updating firmware without the need of having physical access to the device. 

The current version of nRF Programmer allows you to choose from several samples in the nRF Connect SDK, including:

  • Edge Impulse firmware, compatible with the nRF Edge Impulse mobile app and Edge Impulse Studio

  • LED button sample (LBS), compatible with the nRF Blinky mobile app

  • Peripheral UART sample, compatible with the UART profile in the nRF Toolbox mobile app

  • Mesh light, light switch, light fixture and sensor samples, compatible with the nRF Mesh mobile app

  • Matter weather station application

  • Zigbee weather station application

  • nRF Machine learning application, compatible with Edge Impulse’s Data forwarder

Additional samples will be added in the future.

See the Getting started with Thingy:53 guide for step-by-step instructions on updating the Nordic Thingy:53 firmware overBluetooth® Low Energy (LE).
