Bluetooth Direction Finding

Why Nordic?

For your Direction Finding product

We ship more than one million Bluetooth Low Energy ICs every day.
We shipped more than 350 million wireless Bluetooth Low Energy ICs last year alone, and with more than 40 % market share, we can confidently state that we are the Bluetooth Low Energy market leader. Can we say something about number of Bluetooth customers? Promote interoperability.

Low power DNA.

Broad portfolio for any application/products

Not just great SoCs, but development hardware, software and tools. One place to get support on everything.

Excite developers. Ease-of-use, value-add integration and solutions. Number of developers on DevZone? Number of DKs sold? Use PPK2 as an example?

Ideal platform for basing a product portfolio upon. The nRF52 and nRF53 Series are truly the ideal platform for basing a product portfolio upon. The common hardware and software architecture results in excellent software portability, increasing software reusability and lowering time-to-market and development cost.

All-flash based flexibility and upgradability The nRF52 Series are all-flash based SoCs. Flash memory brings complete flexibility and upgradability to your designs and products. Devices can be re-programmed in the factory or in the field with over-the-air device firmware upgrades (OTA DFU). This enables product updates and feature additions any time, anywhere.
