Thread networks are simple to install, highly secure, scalable to hundreds of devices and developed to run on low-power IEEE 802.15.4 devices. We offer a complete Thread certified solution with our nRF52840 wireless SoC and the accompanying nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee. The SDK takes a full advantage of multi-protocol capabilities of nRF52840 SoC by offering support for concurrent Thread/Zigbee and Bluetooth® Low Energy operation. The SDK includes a broad selection of drivers, libraries, examples and SoftDevice, for the nRF52840.
Nordic supports Thread product developments with the nRF52840 multiprotocol SoC and the nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee. This solution brings the benefits of Thread and Bluetooth 5 into a single chip design.
The nRF5 SDK for Thread is built on the proven OpenThread stack released by Nest and the S140 for Bluetooth connectivity. The nRF5 SDK for Thread takes a full advantage of multi-protocol capabilities of nRF52840 SoC by offering support for concurrent Thread/Zigbee and Bluetooth® Low Energy operation. The SDK includes a broad selection of drivers, libraries, examples and SoftDevice, for the nRF52840.
To further easy development Nordic offers software for a border router based on nRF52840 and a Raspberry PI. This makes it easy to get started to create internet connected Thread networks.
