Nordic Thingy:53 brings dual-Arm Cortex-M33 processor power and embedded machine learning to rapid IoT product prototyping


The latest addition to Nordic's Thingy range combines the company’s flagship dual-core SoC, Power Management IC, PA/LNA range extender, and multiple sensors, with embedded machine learning firmware for the shortest route to advanced wireless proofs-of-concept.

Thingy:53 is based on Nordic’s nRF5340 dual-core Arm® Cortex® M-33 advanced multiprotocol 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. The prototyping platform is equipped with a rechargeable 1350 mAh 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 Thingy:53.
