The nRF52811 is a Bluetooth 5.2 SoC with extensive protocol support. It is the 4th addition to the nRF52 Series platform, extending the numerous applications and use cases already covered by the platform.
The nRF52811 SoC is capable of the latest and greatest features of Bluetooth 5.1, the most prominent being Direction Finding, taking Bluetooth positioning to new heights.
It is built around a 64 MHz Arm® Cortex™-M4 CPU, and has a range of digital peripherals and interfaces such as PDM, PWM, UART, SPI and TWI. It also has a capable 12-bit ADC. Exceptionally low energy consumption is achieved using a sophisticated on-chip adaptive power management system.
The nRF52811 SoC supports an extensive range of wireless protocols. It supports Bluetooth Low Energy, and is capable of Bluetooth Direction Finding in addition Long Range and 2 Mbps. Thread, and 2.4 GHz proprietary protocols are also supported. It has 4 dBm TX power and has been optimized to offer the best RX sensitivity of all SoCs in the nRF52 Series:
The nRF52811 SoC is supported by the nRF5 SDK, providing examples, libraries and drivers to get started. nRF5 SDK for Thread and Zigbee offers limited Thread support.
The nRF52840 DK is the recommend development kit, emulating the nRF52811 SoC, and can be used as a starting point for development before moving over to a custom board. Please note that this development kit does not support Bluetooth Direction Finding.
The nRF52811 SoC comes in our smallest package, a 2.48x2.46 mm WLCSP package, together with two QFN packages. It is drop-in compatible with the nRF52810 SoC in all package variants:
