Nordic Semiconductor Thingy:52™ IoT Sensor Development Kit

Added to your shopping cart

The Nordic Thingy:52™ is an easy-to-use prototyping platform, designed to help in building prototypes and demos, without the need to build hardware or even write firmware. It is built around the nRF52832 Bluetooth 5 SoC.

All sensors and actuators can be configured over-the-air using Bluetooth Low Energy. It makes it possible to create demos and prototypes without starting from scratch. It connects to Bluetooth Low Energy-enabled smart phones, tablets, laptops and similar devices, and it sends/receives data from/to its sensors/actuators to an app or cloud. It includes an NFC antenna, and has 1 button and 1 RGB LED that simplifies input and output.

It comes with the accompanying Nordic Thingy:52 app for iOS and Android, and a web Bluetooth API app. It also offers cloud connectivity through the IFTTT web service.

It is powered with a rechargeable Li-Po battery with a capacity of 1440 mAh, that can be charged via USB. Source code for firmware and mobile apps and hardware layout and schematics are available.
