nRF5340

The new flagship SoC

The nRF5340 is the world’s first wireless SoC with two Arm® Cortex®-M33 processors. The combination of two flexible processors, the advanced feature set, and an operating temperature up to 105 °C, make it the ideal choice for professional lighting, advanced wearables, and other complex IoT applications.

The nRF5340 is an all-in-one SoC, including a superset of the most prominent nRF52® Series features. Features like Bluetooth® 5.1, 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.

The nRF5340 is a truly secure SoC, offering trusted execution, root-of-trust and secure key storage security features. It is capable of an extensive range of wireless protocols, including Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth mesh, NFC, Thread and Zigbee.
