nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee

Software development kit for Thread and Zigbee

A complete solution for building Thread 1.1 and Zigbee 3.0-certified products. The nRF52833 and nRF52840 SoCs together with the nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee offer a powerful solution for developing mesh applications. The SDK also has support for the nRF52811 SoC, as a Thread RCP. 

nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee takes a full advantage of the multiprotocol capabilities of the nRF52833 and nRF52840 SoCs by supporting concurrent Thread/Zigbee 3.0 and Bluetooth® Low Energy operation.

Thread feature highlights:

  • Support for the nRF52811, nRF52833 and nRF52840 SoCs (nRF52840 is a Thread certified component)
  • Pre-built Thread 1.1.1 certified OpenThread stack
  • Supports the nRF21540 RF FEM, our 2.4 GHz range extender
  • Based on nRF5 SDK
  • Support for OpenThread Network Co-Processor (NCP) and Radio Co-Processor (RCP)
  • RCP support for the nRF52811 SoC
  • Support for DFU OTA over Thread
  • Concurrent multiprotocol between Bluetooth LE and Thread examples
  • CoAP, CoAP Secure and MQTT-SN application layer examples
