nRF5340 Prototyping Platform – Thingy:53 ready to buy
The Nordic Thingy:53 is an IoT prototyping platform designed for Matter development, featuring the nRF5340 SoC with two Arm Cortex-M33 processors. With an advanced feature set and an operating temperature up to 105 °C, it's suitable for Matter, LE Audio, professional lighting, wearables, and complex IoT applications. The Thingy:53 incorporates various integrated sensors (environmental, color, light, accelerometers, magnetometer) without requiring additional hardware. Powered by a rechargeable 1350 mAh Li-Po battery (USB-C charging), it includes an external 4-pin JST connector compatible with Stemma/Qwiic/Grove standards. The firmware, based on the nRF Connect SDK, integrates Zephyr RTOS, protocol stacks, reference applications, and hardware drivers. The certified Matter weather station application showcases the use of Matter for building a weather station using the Nordic Thingy:53. As a Matter accessory device, it remotely collects data (temperature, air pressure, relative humidity) over a low-power, 802.15.4 Thread network.
