High performance, entry-level Bluetooth 5/ANT/2.4GHz SoC
Active

The nRF52810 is a high performance multiprotocol SoC supporting Bluetooth 5, ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary applications. It has been designed to offer advanced features such as Bluetooth 5 and an ARM Cortex-M4 CPU at a level that makes it compelling for even the lowest cost Bluetooth Low Energy applications. Together with the nRF52840 and nRF52832, the nRF52810 completes the nRF52 Series SoC range, giving developers a broad selection of features, memory variants and small-footprint package options.

Processing power

The nRF52810 incorporates a powerful ARM Cortex®-M4 processor enabling the most demanding applications with complex requirements to be realized in a single chip solution. It also enables all protocol handling to be executed in the shortest timeframe, thus enabling faster return to sleep and current saving ability.

Multiprotocol radio

The 2.4GHz radio supports multiple protocols including Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth 5), ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary. The radio has high definition RSSI and highly automated functionality, including EasyDMA for direct memory access during packet send and receive. Nordic provides protocol stacks for Bluetooth LE. ANT protocol stacks are available from ANT.

Power Efficiency

The nRF52810 SoC is an extremely power efficient device that can run from a supply between 1.7V and 3.6V. All individual peripherals and clocks offer complete flexibility of power down when not required for task operation thus minimizing power consumption to a minimum. The IC has a comprehensive system of automated and adaptive power management features. These features range across the entire IC’s operation from power supply switching to peripheral bus/EasyDMA memory management, and automated shut down of all but the absolute essential peripherals required to perform a task.

Package options

The nRF52810 is available in 6 x 6 mm QFN-48, 5 x 5 mm QFN-32 and 2.48 x 2.46 mm WLCSP32 packages.

SoftDevice

The nRF52810 is supported by the S112 SoftDevice, a Bluetooth 5 pre-qualified Bluetooth LE protocol stack. Click for more information on nRF52 Series in our Infocenter.
