Why Nordic?

For your Zigbee product

Nordic Semiconductor has low power wireless in its DNA. We ship more than one million ICs every day. With more than 40% market share in Bluetooth LE, we are the Bluetooth Low Energy market leader. We used this experience and expanded it to other technologies, like Zigbee. 

Our devices can be a great choice to base your new product platform on. With different sizes and capabilities our SoCs. The devices are similar to one another which enables excellent code portability between devices. This increases your software reusability and can reliably improve your time to market.
Our SoCs can run both Bluetooth Low Energy and Thread/Zigbee/Bluetooth mesh concurrently. The radio time is time-sliced and shared between the protocols. The scheduling is autonomous and maintains connections. A perfect choice for multi-protocol applications.

The nRF52 and nRF53 Series SoCs can be re-programmed in the factory or in the field with over-the-air device firmware upgrades (OTA DFU). This enables product updates and feature additions in the field. 

Our software offering for Zigbee development is the nRF Connect SDK. The nRF Connect SDK is a software development kit for building products based on our nRF52, nRF53 and nRF91 Series wireless devices. It integrates the Zephyr RTOS and a wide range of samples, application protocols, protocol stacks, libraries and hardware drivers. It includes DSR's industry-proven Zigbee 3.0 stack, ZBOSS, optimized for minimal resource usage and high performance. The nRF52840 and the nRF52833 SoC with the nRF Connect SDK are Zigbee compliant platforms, ensuring interoperability according to specification. 

Zigbee tools

When Nordic Semiconductor entered the world of Bluetooth Low Energy, 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. This we keep this goal in mind for our other supported technologies. Today’s start-up can be the next industry giant in the Internet of Things market. We make our products available and affordable for everyone with almost all of our software and development tools being free to use. Nordic is about exciting developers, all developers.
