nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee

Software development kit for Thread and Zigbee

The nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee is in maintenance mode and will receive updates as needed (see nRF Connect SDK and nRF5 SDK statement for more info). For new projects, we recommend using our nRF Connect SDK.

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.
