Mouser Now Shipping Nordic Semiconductor’s Thingy:52 IoT Sensor Development Kit

August 31, 2017 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader that empowers innovation, is now stocking the Thingy:52™ IoT sensor development kit from Nordic Semiconductor. Thingy:52 is a compact, easy-to-use development platform designed to help engineers collect environmental data and build Internet of Things (IoT) prototypes and demos, without the need to build hardware or write firmware from scratch.

Nordic Thingy:52, available from Mouser Electronics, is built around the Nordic nRF52832 Bluetooth® 5 system-on-chip (SoC). It connects to Bluetooth-enabled devices — including mobile phones, laptops, tablets, and Raspberry Pi boards — and sends data from its sensors and actuators to an app and to the cloud. Thingy:52 can sense temperature, humidity, air pressure, light, color, and air quality. The device offers 9-axis motion sensing as well, allowing engineers to detect orientation, rotation, tap detection, and raw data from the integrated accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. It can also play sound via its speaker and stream sound to the mobile app from its microphone.

Engineers can configure functionality of Thingy:52 — including all sensors and Bluetooth low energy parameters — directly over-the-air via a Bluetooth API. This ability makes it possible to create demos and prototypes without actually programming Thingy:52 itself, and do all development on the app or cloud solution. As new versions of the firmware are released, engineers can update Thingy:52 over-the-air using the provided apps. Advanced users can employ Thingy:52 as a development kit by building their own firmware and uploading it onto the board.
