Low-cost alternative

A low-cost alternative for large-scale testing

The nRF52840 Dongle is an USB dongle designed for nRF Connect for Desktop, but still has comprehensive wireless protocol support with Bluetooth 5, Blueooth mesh, Thread and Zigbee. It can be a low-cost alternative when doing large-scale testing, or when size is important. Do note that there is no debug support, only support for programming and communication through USB.

For the nRF51 Series equivalent, check out the nRF51 Dongle.

USB dongles

nRF52840 Dongle

The nRF52840 Dongle is complementary hardware to the nRF Connect for Desktop. It supports Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, Thread and Zigbee.

nRF51 Dongle

The nRF51 Dongle is a Bluetooth Low Energy, ANT and 2.4 GHz proprietary USB development dongle for the nRF51 Series SoCs. Develop applications for the nRF51822, nRF51422 and nRF51824 SoCs.
