When Nordic Semiconductor entered the world of Bluetooth Low Energy when it was launched we had some very clear goals. One was to become the market leader, another was to make Nordic Bluetooth Low Energy SoCs the most accessible, easy-to-use and well-supported devices in their category. Today’s start-up can be the next industry giant in The Internet of Things. We make our products available and affordable for everyone with almost all of our software and development tools being totally free of charge. Nordic is about exciting developers, all developers.
