nRF52840 Evaluation Kit

NRF52840 Eval Kit is a development/evaluation kit based on nRF52840, features Arduino / Raspberry Pi connectivity, and several common used peripherals and supports the new generation Bluetooth 5.0. Compared to Bluetooth 4.0, the data rate is double, up to 2Mbps, with the transfer distance being quadrupled. Based on the ARM Cortex-M4F architecture, the CPU frequency achieves up to 64MHz. Bluetooth MESH and 2.4GHz radio are also available, that means higher performance, and more suitable applications.

Thanks to the onboard Arduino / Raspberry Pi compatible headers, both Arduino shields and Raspberry Pi HATs can be attached at the same time, make it easy to use more expansion resources.

Quick Spec
