The nRF52832 SoC is supported by the nRF52 Preview DK development kit. Software support for the nRF52832 SoC is split in two major parts: SoftDevices, which are complete wireless protocol stacks; and the nRF52 Software Development Kit (SDK) forming a common code base for the nRF52832 SoC.

nRF52 DK

The nRF52 DK are versatile single board development kits for Bluetooth® Smart, ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary applications using the nRF52832 SoC. The kits supports development for the nRF52832 SoC.

The kits are hardware compatible with the Arduino Uno Revision 3 standard, making it possible to use 3rd-party shields that are compatible to this standard. An NFC antenna can be connected the kit to enable NFC tag functionality. The kits gives access to all I/O and interfaces via connectors and has 4 LEDs and 4 buttons which are user-programmable.

The kits supports the standard Nordic Software Development Tool-chain using Keil, IAR and GCC. Program/Debug options on the kits are Segger J-Link OB.

Software Development Kit (SDK) for nRF51 and nRF52 Series


The nRF52 SoC is supported by an extensive offering of Software. When using the nRF52832 SoC series devices you get free access to pre-qualified Bluetooth Smart and ANT protocol stacks for use in your nRF52832 SoC applications. The wireless protocol stacks are paired with the nRF52 Software Development Kit (SDK) which forms a common code base for the nRF52832 SoC.


SoftDevices are precompiled and linked binary software implementing Bluetooth Smart and ANT wireless protocols. SoftDevices reduce compile-time dependences for application developers working on their applications. The hardware and software framework provides run-time isolation and determinism in its behavior. These characteristics make the interface comparable to a hardware peripheral abstraction with a functional, programmatic interface.

The SoftDevice Application Programming Interface (API) is available to applications as a high-level programming language interface such as a C header file.

All ANT-related SoftDevices for the nRF52 series are now obtained from ANT. This applies to both ANT only and ANT/Bluetooth Smart combo SoftDevices. For more information on this please contact : and read more about the S332 and S212 here.

nRF52 Series Software Development Kit

The nRF52 Software Development kit (SDK) offers developers source code (in C) and pre-compiled libraries containing Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ device profiles, wireless communication as well as application examples. Nordic Semiconductor’s proprietary 2.4 GHz stack for human interface devices (Gazell) is also supported. Examples and driver libraries for all the peripherals found on the nRF52832 SoC are contained in this SDK. The nRF52 SDK is built on the ARM® CMSIS standard and supports the following SW development tool chains:

  • Keil MDK-ARM
  • GCC
  • IAR Embedded Workbench

The nRF52832 SoC is compatible with Bluetooth Smart, ANT and 2.4GHz, the common application and peripheral sections of the nRF52 SDK enables you to develop and maintain a common code base across all three wireless technologies.
