COVID-19 update from Nordic Semiconductor

The coronavirus outbreak has a global effect on the society and economy and also impacted the people, organization and operations of Nordic Semiconductor in the first quarter 2020. 

While safety and security have taken top priority, Nordic is also working to safeguard business continuity, ensuring that the company is remaining fully operational for its customers, suppliers and partners.

The COVID-19 situation has triggered renewed interest in connected devices to prevent, monitor and track diseases. Nordic is engaged in several designs for such applications and has joined the United Nations Developer Program's COVID-19 Detect & Protect Challenge to help prevent the spread of the virus in developing countries.
 
With millions around the world battling loneliness and isolation, Nordic has teamed up with Cadent and RS Components to call for innovative solutions helping people in isolation through a common initiative; Connect the Community: Design Challenge.
 
Nordic is proceeding as normal with all its product development projects and has strengthened its online developer support, Nordic DevZone, and customer programs to compensate for the restrictions on travels and physical meetings.
