Nordic Semiconductor, a leading company in wireless connectivity for the IoT, has launched its fourth-generation multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC), the nRF54H20. The nRF54 Series follows Nordic’s award-winning nRF51, nRF52, and nRF53 Series, and features an innovative new hardware architecture. The nRF54H20 is the first SoC from the fourth generation of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solutions, capable of supporting Bluetooth 5.4, BLE Audio, Bluetooth mesh, Thread, Matter, and more. The nRF54H20 is ideal for complex IoT end-products that have previously been unfeasible, and it features multiple Arm Cortex-M33 processors, optimized for a specific type of workload, and multiple RISC-V coprocessors.
The nRF54H20’s advanced features are supported by integrated memory comprising 2 MB non-volatile memory and 1 MB of RAM. Its high level of integration enables developers to shrink their designs by replacing multiple components with just one highly compact device. The nRF54H20 features an all-new, class-leading multiprotocol 2.4 GHz radio that is the first in the world to offer -100 dBm RX sensitivity when receiving a 1 Mbps Bluetooth LE signal, allowing for more compact batteries or extended battery life. The nRF54H20 is also designed to be one of the most secure low power, multiprotocol SoCs on the market, with state-of-the-art security designed for PSA Certified Level 3, the highest level in the Platform Security Architecture (PSA) Certified IoT security standard.
The nRF54H20 SoC is now available for sampling to selected customers, and interested parties should contact their local Nordic sales representative.
