    The EVK-NORA-B1 evaluation kit provides stand-alone use of the NORA-B1 series module featuring the Nordic Semiconductor nRF5340 dual-core RF System on Chip (SoC).

    The evaluation kit provides a great starting point for almost any Bluetooth® 5.2 Low Energy (LE), Thread, or Zigbee project. All features of the NORA-B1 series modules are easily accessed from the evaluation board. A simple USB connection provides power, programming, and virtual COM ports. Four user buttons are available, as well as a USB peripheral connector, user LEDs, and a reset button. 48 GPIO signals are available on headers that are compatible with the Arduino® form factor. This allows easy use of existing Arduino shields. Current sense resistors allow for measuring current into the module and into the shield.
