S122SoftDevice

Memory-optimized Central-only Bluetooth Low Energy protocol stack

SoftDevice S122 is a memory-optimized Bluetooth® Low Energy protocol stack for the nRF52820 and nRF52833 System-on-Chips (SoCs). Up to 8 connections as a Central can be run concurrently with an Observer. It supports the following Bluetooth features: high-throughput 2 Mbps and channel selection algorithm 2 (CSA #2). The number of connections and bandwidth per connection are configurable, offering memory and performance optimization.

It is a complete stack with GAP, GATT, ATT, SM and Link Layer. Both GATT Server and Client are supported. The broad feature set also includes Privacy 1.2, configurable ATT MTU and LE Secure Connections.

It will be Bluetooth 5.1 qualified.
