Nordic Semiconductor is a Norwegian fabless semiconductor company specializing in wireless communication technology that powers the Internet of Things (IoT). Nordic was established in 1983 and has more than 1300 employees across the globe. The company pioneered ultra-low power (coin cell-powered) wireless from the early 2000s, and helped develop Bluetooth Low Energy, a rapidly growing, multi-vendor, short-range wireless technology widely adopted in the computer, gaming, wellbeing, mobile, consumer, healthcare, and automation sectors. Technology range was later supplemented by ANT+, Thread and Zigbee, and in 2018 Nordic launched low power, compact LTE-M/NB-IoT cellular IoT solutions to extend the penetration of the IoT. The Nordic portfolio was further complemented by Wi-Fi technology in 2021.
The Power Profiler Kit II is a standalone unit for measuring and optionally supplying all Nordic development boards and additional hardware. It enables easy and affordable power measurements for wireless product development on all Nordic DKs, in addition to aforementioned external hardware.
A community of more than 25,000 developers and a dedicated team of application engineers for Nordic technical support.
