The Nordic Thingies are a family of rapid prototyping platforms for IoT applications and PoC. They offer developers, engineers and inventors the ability to put concepts and ideas for wireless products into practice in a very fast time frame.
Proof of Concept (PoC) is an important step in the product development lifecycle. PoCs are where ideas start to look like products and where products start to take form.
The Nordic Thingy philosophy is to put best-in-class Nordic flagship SoCs at the heart of the Thingy and compliment these SoCs with multiple sensors, actuators and interfaces, giving a wealth of exciting possibilities out-of-the box.
They support Over the Air Device Firmware Updates (DFU) meaning both application and communication stack firmware can be upgraded via a mobile device, gateway or the cellular network.
The Thingies are rugged and built to last, they come in a tough polypropylene case and have a removable splash-proof rubber hood. They run from LiPo batteries and dependent on your application can run for months and even years on a single charge. A Thingy even has mounting holes on the case making it ideal for long term in-situ tests indoors and outdoors.
