ARM-based SoC targets Bluetooth Smart applications

Sampling now, the nRF52832 is the first member of Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52 Series Systems-on-Chip family, aimed at Bluetooth Smart applications.  It features a 64MHz ARM Cortex-M4F processor with 512kB flash and 64kB RAM, achieving a 215 CoreMark score.

A proprietary 2.4GHz radio is included, with -96dB RX sensitivity, 5.5mA peak RX/TX currents, and an on-chip RF Balun. A fully-automatic power management system enables the part to achieve a figure of 90 CoreMark/mA.

The device also includes a full range of on-chip analog and digital peripherals for glueless interfacing to external components such as sensors, displays, touch controllers, LEDs, keypads, motors, digital microphones, and audio codecs.
