nRF52840 Dongle



   Designed for nRF Connect for Desktop

Development dongle for Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Zigbee, 802.15.4, ANT 2.4GHz


     The nRF52840 Dongle is a small, low-cost USB dongle that supports Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, Thread, ZigBee, 802.15.4, ANT and 2.4 GHz proprietary protocols. The Dongle is the perfect target hardware for use with nRF Connect for Desktop as it is low-cost but still support all the short range wireless standards used with Nordic devices. The dongle has been designed to be used as a wireless HW device together with nRF Connect for Desktop. For other use cases please do note that there is no debug support on the Dongle, only support for programming the device and communicating through USB.

     It is supported by most of the nRF Connect for Desktop apps and will automatically be programmed if needed. In addition custom applications can be compiled and downloaded to the Dongle. It has a user programmable RGB LED, a green LED, a user programmable button as well as 15 GPIO accessible from castellated solder points along the edge. Example applications are available in the nRF5 SDK under the board name PCA10059.

     The nRF52840 Dongle is supported by nRF Connect for Desktop as well as programming through nRFUtil.

Bluetooth 5 - Longer range, and higher throughput

     The nRF52840 SoC is ready to take advantage of the considerable performance improvements for Bluetooth LE with the arrival of the Bluetooth 5 specification. Of greatest importance is the support for longer range (up to x4 compared to Bluetooth 4.x) and doubling of on-air data rate, up to 2 Mbs from 1 Mbs in Bluetooth 4.x

High link budget for in-home applications

     The nRF52840 SoC is the ideal solution for smart connected home applications. It supports both Bluetooth 5’s long range feature and also 802.15.4 which is already a popular technology for home networking protocols. With a maximum output power of 8 dBm a total link budget of >111 dBm is achievable for achieving robust communications through objects within the home.

Arm CryptoCell 310

     The nRF52840 features an on-chip Arm CryptoCell 310 cryptographic hardware accelerator. CryptoCell offers a wide range of ciphers and security features for building solid security into applications from the ground up. Use of CryptoCell also makes associated security operations run faster and uses less processing time and power than equivalent operation carried out in software by the CPU.


     The nRF52840 SoC is supported by Over-the-Air Device Firmware Upgrade (OTA-DFU). This allows for in the field updates of application and/or protocol stack

Nordic SoftDevices

     Nordic protocol stacks are known as SoftDevices. SoftDevices are pre-compiled binaries without runtime dependencies. They reside in a separate memory location to your application and offer safer, easier, and more secure application development. The nRF52840 SoC is supported by the S140 SoftDevice.

S140 SoftDevice

     The S140 SoftDevice supports 20 Bluetooth LE links in concurrent operation operation for all 4 roles (Central/Peripheral/Broadcaster/Observer). The S140 is a Bluetooth 5 qualified stack and as such supports the latest long range and high throughput features introduced in Bluetooth 5.


 nRF52840 System on Chip
Advanced Bluetooth 5, Thread and Zigbee multiprotocol SoC

     The nRF52840 SoC is the most advanced member of the nRF52 Series SoC family. It meets the challenges of sophisticated applications that need protocol concurrency and a rich and varied set of peripherals and features.  It offers generous memory availability for both Flash and RAM, which are prerequisites for such demanding applications.

     The nRF52840 is fully multiprotocol capable with full protocol concurrency. It has protocol support for Bluetooth 5, Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Zigbee, 802.15.4, ANT and 2.4 GHz proprietary stacks.

     The nRF52840 is built around the 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M4 CPU with floating point unit running at 64 MHz. It has NFC-A Tag for use in simplified pairing and payment solutions. The ARM TrustZone® CryptoCell cryptographic unit is included on-chip and brings an extensive range of cryptographic options that execute highly efficiently independent of the CPU. It has numerous digital peripherals and interfaces such as high speed SPI and QSPI for interfacing to external flash and displays, PDM and I2S for digital microphones and audio, and a full speed USB device for data transfer and power supply for battery recharging.

     Exceptionally low energy consumption is achieved using a sophisticated on-chip adaptive power management system.
