Nordic enables your products

Are you thinking about integrating Matter into one of your products? If you are using one of our Thread-capable devices this will be easier that you think. Nordic devices put you in the ideal position to develop your Matter products. As the #1 Bluetooth Low Energy System-on-Chips (SoCs) supplier with a h3 presence in OpenThread, Nordic is your ideal partner.

Nordic is one of the leading companies in Thread/Bluetooth Low Energy multiprotocol. This is a requirement for Matter and Thread HomeKit accessories, where Bluetooth LE is used to commission and Thread for data transfer. It is also possible to build a Thread-capable device now and include Matter support later with an update.

We offer excellent documentation and technical support to anyone developing a Thread product with our SoCs. We guide you through the product development process.

Single-board development kits

Development kits

We offer development kits containing what you need to get started with your Thread development. Our kits make all features and GPIOs of the SoCs available to you, including NFC. All kits have LEDs and buttons, enabling you to get output and give input. Our kits come with a  SEGGER on-board J-Link debugger.

Dongle

We also offer the nRF52840 Dongle. It is complementary hardware to the nRF Connect for Desktop tool. It supports Bluetooth Low Energy, Bluetooth mesh, Thread, and Zigbee. It can be a low-cost alternative when doing large-scale testing, or when size is important. Do note that it does not have a debugger on board. We recommend using the development kit for development.

Power measurement

Our Power Profiler Kit II (PPK 2) is the next thing to look at. The PPK 2 is a tool made to measure current consumption. Use it with any of our development kits, prototyping platforms, or your own designs. PPK2 works all the way from sub-µA to 1 A and can log up to 500 days as is.
