NORDIC SEMICONDUCTOR Nordic Thingy:53 is a multi-sensor prototyping platform with multiprotocol short range wireless connectivity and support for embedded machine learning (ML). Product is a suitable platform for building advanced wireless proofs-of-concept and prototypes with ML capabilities on the shortest development schedules. Device is based on firm’s nRF5340 dual-core Arm Cortex M-33 advanced multi-protocol System-on-Chip (SoC) and incorporates the company’s nPM1100 Power Management IC (PMIC) and nRF21540 Front End Module (FEM), a power amplifier/low noise amplifier (PA/LNA) range extender. Prototyping platform is equipped with a rechargeable 1350mAh Li-poly battery and multiple motion and environmental sensors. It supports Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE), Thread, Matter, Zigbee, IEEE 802.15.4, NFC, and Bluetooth mesh RF protocols and comes with preinstalled firmware for embedded ML directly on the device.
