NORDIC THINGY:52 BLE DEV BOARD
The Nordic Thingy:52 is an easy-to-use development platform for IoT, designed to enable people who want to develop IoT product prototypes and demos without building HW or writing FW. The Nordic Thingy:52 is built around the nRF52832 Bluetooth® SoC and is connected to several sensors on the board. The functionality of the sensors, e.g. On/Off, sampling rate, etc. can be configured over-the-air via a Bluetooth API. Meaning that it is possible to create demos and prototypes without actually programming the device.
In addition to sensors, the Nordic Thingy:52 also have built-in microphone and speaker to support audio features. That makes it possible to send audio from the device to the app and from the app to the Thingy:52.
The Nordic Thingy:52 comes pre-programed and all that is needed is to download the Nordic Thingy:52 app to a smartphone to get started. The app is available for both iOS and Android. It also comes with support for the IF This Then That (IFTTT) cloud services making it easy to interact to service and applications supporting IFTTT, e.g. Philips Hue, Facebook, Gmail, etc.
