The new Nordic nRF52810 supports Bluetooth 5 which is characterised by high throughput (2Mbps), "advertising extensions" and improved coexistence features. The SoC is supportet by the S112 Soft Device, a optimized BLE protocol software version ("stack") that reserves less memory but still ensures the use of all BLE functions.
The ARM Cortex®-M4 processor enables the most demanding applications to be realized in a single chip solution and all protocol handling to be executed in the shortest timeframe. Thus, the SoC can return to sleep faster and save power. Furthermore, the IC has a comprehensive system of automated and adaptive power management features and all individual peripherals and clocks offer complete flexibility of power down when not required for task operation. The operating voltage between 1,7V and 3,6V is suited for the direct connection to a coin cell battery.
Nordic provides besides Bluetooth 5 also ANT and proprietary 2,4-GHz protocols for the free programmable Chip. Furthermore it contains high definition RSSI and highly automated functionality, including EasyDMA for direct memory access during sending and receiving mode.
After the counterpart with additional features like USB, NFC, IEEE 802.15.4, co-processor and bigger memory, the nRF52810 is the most cost-efficient member of the nRF52-series and still offers sufficient performance. With the latest version of the nRF5 SDK (Software Development Kit) Nordic offers a complete development area which supports now next to KEIL, IAR, GCC also SEGGER 'Embedded Studio'. The nRF52810 is available in package QFN-48 with 6x6mm² and QFN-32 with 5x5mm² and offers up to 32 GPIOs.
