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.
