nRF52833 DK Development kit

Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth mesh, NFC, Thread and Zigbee development kit for the nRF52833 SoC

The nRF52833 DK is an affordable single-board development kit for development of Bluetooth® Low Energy, Bluetooth mesh, NFC, Thread and Zigbee applications on the nRF52833 SoC. It also supports development on the nRF52820 SoC.

The kit is hardware compatible with the Arduino Uno Rev3 standard, making it possible to use a wide range of 3rd-party shields that are compatible with this standard, including the Power Profiler Kit from Nordic Semiconductor. The nRF52833 DK is also compatible with the Power Profiler Kit II.

An included NFC antenna can be connected the kit to use the on-chip NFC-A tag functionality. The kit allows access to all I/O and interfaces via connectors and has 4 LEDs and 4 buttons which are user-programmable.

The DK is typically powered with USB, but can be powered by a wide range of sources, within the supply range of 1.7 to 5.0 V. In addition to USB, it can be powered with external source, but also includes a CR2032 battery holder and a Li-Po battery connector, for in-field testing. Current consumption can be measured by using the dedicated current measurement pins.

And on-board SEGGER J-link debugger allows programming and debugging both the on-board SoC and external SoCs through the debug out header.
