nRF52840 DKDevelopment Kit

Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, Thread and Zigbee Development Kit for the nRF52840 SoC

The nRF52840 DK is a versatile single board development kit for Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Zigbee, 802.15.4, ANT and 2.4 GHz proprietary applications on the nRF52840 SoC. It also supports development for the nRF52811 SoC.

It facilitates development exploiting all features of the nRF52840 SoC. It includes an NFC antenna that quickly enables utilization of the NFC-A tag peripheral. All GPIOs are available via edge connectors and headers, and 4 buttons and 4 LEDs simplifies input and output to and from the SoC.

It is Arduino Uno Revision 3 compatible, making it possible to mount 3rd-party shields with ease. It comes with an on-board SEGGER J-Link debugger allowing programming and debugging both the on-board SoC and external SoCs through the debug out header. It also interfaces directly with the Power Profiler Kit.

It can be powered with USB, but also includes a CR2032 battery holder, enabling in-field testing of prototypes.
SEGGER Embedded Studio, Keil, GCC and IAR IDEs and toolchains are supported, see this for more information.
The box includes an nRF52840 DK, an NFC antenna and a CR2032 battery. Hardware layout and schematics are available.
