nRF52 DKDevelopment kit

Bluetooth Low Energy and Bluetooth mesh development kit for the nRF52810 and nRF52832 SoCs

The nRF52 DK is a versatile single board development kit for Bluetooth Low, Bluetooth mesh, NFC, ANT and 2.4 GHz proprietary development on the nRF52810 and nRF52832 SoCs.

It facilitates development exploiting all features of the nRF52810 and the nRF52832 SoCs. It includes an NFC antenna that quickly enables utilization of the NFC-A tag peripheral on the nRF52832. All GPIOs are available via edge connectors and headers, and 4 buttons and 4 LEDs simplify output and input from and to 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 by 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 IDEs and Toolchains for more information.

The box includes an nRF52 DK board, an NFC antenna and a CR2032 battery. Hardware layout and schematics are available.
