Nordic enables your products

Are you thinking about integrating Matter into one of your products? If you are using one of our Thread-capable devices this will be easier that you think. Nordic devices put you in the ideal position to develop your Matter products. As the #1 Bluetooth Low Energy System-on-Chips (SoCs) supplier with a presence in OpenThread, Nordic is your ideal partner.

Nordic has a leading position in Thread/Bluetooth Low Energy multiprotocol. Our nRF52840 SoC and nRF Connect SDK 2.0.2 received the worlds first Thread 1.3 certification badge, that can be easily inherited by our customers and is a prerequisite for Matter over Thread, where Bluetooth LE is used to commission and Thread for data transfer. It is also possible to build a Thread-capable device now and include Matter support later with an update.

We offer excellent documentation and technical support to anyone developing a Thread product with our SoCs. We guide you through the product development process.
