An evaluation kit in the form of an Arduino shield for the nRF70 series of Wi-Fi companion ICs. This versatile kit complements and is compatible with Nordic's nRF52840 DK, nRF5340 DK, and nRF9160 DK developer kits.
Development kit for the nRF7002 Wi-Fi 6 companion IC, containing everything needed to get started developing on a single board. The DK features an nRF5340 multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC) as a host device for the nRF7002.
An integrated circuit for dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and SSID-based location determination via active and passive scanning of nearby access points. This is the fully featured version of the nRF70 series and is pin-compatible with the nRF7001 and nRF7000.
An integrated circuit for single-band (2.4 GHz) Wi-Fi 6 connectivity and SSID-based location determination via active and passive scanning of nearby access points. This is the single-band version of the nRF70 series and is pin-compatible with the nRF7002 and nRF7000.
An integrated circuit for SSID-based location determination via active and passive scanning of nearby access points. Though pin-compatible with the nRF7002 and nRF7001, this version cannot connect to or transmit data over a Wi-Fi network. It is only for scanning and collecting information about networks.
The nRF70 Series is a family of low-power Wi-Fi companion ICs designed for embedded applications. The series includes: nRF7002 for dual-band Wi-Fi 6, nRF7001 for lower-cost 2.4 GHz applications, and nRF7000 for Wi-Fi network scanning and SSID-based Wi-Fi locationing. They enable Wi-Fi connectivity, and provide a flexible and low-power solution for adding Wi-Fi connectivity to embedded applications. The series also has advanced security features included to help protect user data.
The ICs can easily operate alongside Nordic’s nRF52840, nRF5340, and nRF91 Series devices, as well as other hosts that support SPI or QSPI communication. An extra coexistence feature allows for seamless coexistence with other protocols like Bluetooth Low Energy, Thread, or Zigbee.
To facilitate development and integration, all nRF70 series ICs are fully compatible with Nordic’s nRF Connect SDK. This comprehensive software development kit provides a unified platform with a range of tools and libraries specifically designed for harnessing the capabilities of the nRF7000 IC. With the nRF70 series and the nRF Connect SDK, developers can seamlessly incorporate Wi-Fi 6 connectivity (with nRF7001 and nRF7002) and SSID-based Wi-Fi locationing (with nRF7000, nRF7001, and nRF7002) into their products, augmenting their IoT applications with accurate positioning and location-awareness features.
With Wi-Fi 6, Nordic supports all wireless protocols used in Matter: Bluetooth LE for commissioning, Thread for low-power mesh, and Wi-Fi for high-throughput.

The nRF7002 DK is the development kit for the nRF7002 Wi-Fi 6 companion IC. It contains everything needed to get started developing on a single board. The DK features an nRF5340 multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC) as a host device for the nRF7002. The DK supports the development of low-power Wi-Fi 6 applications and enables applications to use Wi-Fi 6 features like OFDMA, beamforming, and target wake time.
The nRF7002 EK is a versatile evaluation kit in the form of an Arduino shield. This kit is designed to complement the nRF52840 DK, nRF5340 DK, and nRF9160 DK development kits, providing an easy way to evaluate and harness the power of the nRF70 Series of Wi-Fi companion ICs.
Equipped with the nRF7002 companion IC, the nRF7002 EK unlocks low-power Wi-Fi 6 capabilities for your host device. Seamlessly connect to Wi-Fi networks and leverage Wi-Fi-based locationing, enabling advanced features such as SSID sniffing of local Wi-Fi hubs. The nRF7002 is specifically designed to integrate with Nordic’s nRF52 and nRF53 Series multiprotocol SoCs, as well as the nRF91 Series cellular IoT SiP. It can also be used alongside non-Nordic host devices.
To communicate with the host processor, the nRF7002 EK supports SPI or QSPI interfaces. The unique wireless coexistence support on the nRF70 series ensures that protocols such as Bluetooth Low Energy, Thread, or Zigbee can seamlessly co-exist with Wi-Fi. The nRF7002 is fully integrated into Nordic’s nRF Connect SDK, making development simple. While the nRF7002 DK is a complete development kit, the nRF7002 EK is a companion evaluation kit that requires a host development kit to unleash its full potential. By connecting the nRF7002 EK to an nRF52840 DK, you can evaluate the cost-effective combination of nRF52840 and nRF7002.
The combination of nRF9160 DK and the nRF7002 enables developers to combine the capabilities of cellular IoT and Wi-Fi. The nRF7002 EK can also be used to emulate the nRF7001 and nRF7000 ICs. A combination of an nRF91 Series cellular SiP and an nRF7000 IC has GNSS, cell-based locationing, and SSID-based Wi-Fi locationing capabilities. This enables the best possible location results in most conditions.
