Nordic’s nRF7002 DK for low-power Wi-Fi 6 IoT


Devkit Watch: Nordic's nRF7002 DK for low-power Wi-Fi

The kit supports the prototyping of low-power, battery operated Wi-Fi applications and enables Wi-Fi 6 features such as OFDMA, Beamforming, and Target Wake Time. We’re talking asset tracking, wearables and medical, smart city and industrial sensors…

nRF7002 DK

Note that the nRF7002 itself is is designed to be used alongside Nordic’s existing nRF52/3 Series Bluetooth SoCs and nRF91 Series cellular IoT SiPs. It can also be used in conjunction with non-Nordic host devices, highlights the company.

The development kit contains all you need to get started developing on a single board, featuring an nRF5340 multiprotocol SoC as a host processor for the chip.


Nordic writes:

“To communicate with the host, SPI or QSPI can be used, and an extra coexistence feature allows for seamless coexistence with other protocols like Bluetooth, Thread, or Zigbee. The nRF7002 is integrated and supported in Nordic’s nRF Connect SDK.”

“The nRF7002 is the first device in Nordic’s portfolio of unique Wi-Fi products that will combine seamlessly with Nordic’s existing ultra-low power technologies. Nordic bring their decades of ultra-low-power wireless IoT and silicon design expertise to Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi 6 brings added benefits to IoT applications, including further efficiency gains supporting long-life, battery-powered Wi-Fi operation.”
