Nordic Semiconductor today announces that Slovenia-based company, Chipolo, has selected Nordic’s nRF52833 Bluetooth® Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) System-on-Chip (SoC) to provide the core processing and wireless connectivity for its Chipolo ONE Spot item finder.  

Item finding via Apple Find My network 

Chipolo ONE Spot is a lightweight, water-resistant item finder designed to help users find their missing valuable items. The solution works exclusively with the Apple Find My network, made up of hundreds of millions of Apple devices around the world. By attaching the Find My-enabled Chipolo ONE Spot to personal belongings such as keys or luggage and adding it to the Apple Find My app on their iPhones or iPads, users can find missing or misplaced valuables through the private and secure Apple Find My network.  

We decided to use Nordic’s nRF52833 SoC for Chipolo ONE Spot mainly because of its size, price performance, and memory capacity in order to fit the solution’s firmware with all functionality needed to work with Apple Find My
