Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Thingy:53 rapid prototyping platform from Nordic Semiconductor. Integrating a range of sensors for light, motion, sound, and environmental factors, the Thingy:53 platform provides an ideal solution for building prototypes and proofs-of-concept.
The Thingy:53 Rapid Prototyping Platform is based on the nRF5340 dual-core Arm® Cortex® M-33 system-on-chip (SoC), and the nRF Edge Impulse mobile app enables embedded machine learning (ML) for prototype devices. The platform’s ML capabilities support a range of applications, including voice recognition and movement pattern detection.
The Nordic Semiconductor Thingy:53 rapid prototyping platform features a complete range of sensors and peripherals to support Internet of Things (IoT) application development. The platform’s environmental sensor measures air pressure, air quality, humidity, and temperature in real-time, while the low-power accelerometer supports a broad range of motion detection functions. The platform also offers a connector for external accessories and boards, further extending the possible applications for prototype devices.
The Thingy:53 platform boasts power management features provided by the nPM1100 power management IC (PMIC), an onboard nRF21540 front-end module (FEM) for wireless connectivity and an integrated power amplifier/low noise amplifier (PA/LNA) range extender. The platform’s ML capabilities enable exceptional low-power performance, as devices can conserve battery life when no external stimuli trigger the embedded sensors. The Thingy:53 rapid prototyping platform includes a debug and current measurement board, allowing engineers to monitor power consumption and troubleshoot application code quickly.
