Month 07, 2023Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, 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.
