Nordic, the leading producer of ultra low power (ULP) wireless chips has teamed up again with Hardware Academy to bring the best expertise on bluetooth 5 to London. Discover the great potential of the Nordic nRF52 series and the new IoT multi-sensor development kit Nordic Thingy:52. Boost your development time and learn how to optimise the energy consumption on your devices.
Participants will take home a free Thingy:52 development kit.
The Nordic Thingy:52 is an easy-to-use development platform, designed to help you build IoT prototypes and demos, without the need to build hardware or write firmware. The functionality of the Thingy can be configured over-the-air via a Bluetooth API. That makes it possible to create demos and prototypes without actually programming the Thingy itself. The Thingy is built around the nRF52832 Bluetooth® 5 SoC. It connects to Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones, laptops, tablets and similar devices, and sends data to/from its sensors and actuators to an app and to the cloud. It comes with the accompanying Nordic Thingy:52 app for iOS, Android and a web app.
