Update 1 of 2

NRFICE, Teardown 2023, Connect for Good Challenge, and European Tech Tour

Check out the NRFICE Bluetooth-enabled FPGA dev board, a recap of Teardown 2023, a last call for a $20,000 design challenge, and Nordic’s upcoming Tech Tour in Europe and South Africa.

Introducing NRFICE

We are happy to welcome NRFICE to the Nordic Community Hub. NRFICE is a dongle-free FPGA dev board that uses the Nordic nRF5340 dual-core Bluetooth SoC to dramatically simplify development of edge computing and IoT products by enabling on-the-fly, over-the-air updating of the FPGA bitstream.

As described by the NRFICE creator:

With the Nordic nRF5340 as its central brain, NRFICE makes it possible to load a project into the onboard Lattice iCE40UP5K FPGA out of the box, bypassing the typical extensive toolchain setup. In this way, Nordic Semi enables a new class of FPGA development, where any number and variety of bitstreams are hosted in the cloud, selected by a user on their phone, and loaded wirelessly.

Nordic at Teardown 2023

As a proud sponsor of Teardown 2023, Nordic hosted an info booth, showcasing the latest dev tools and components.

Connect for Good Challenge
