Thingy:91™ Multisensor Prototyping Kit
The Nordic Thingy:91 is the ideal way to kickstart your cellular IoT project using the nRF9160 SiP. Thingy:91 is equipped with a broad collection of diverse sensors and interfaces that make is highly adaptable to rapid prototyping and getting your proof of concept off the ground in no time at all.
- Battery-operated prototyping platform for the nRf9160 SiP
- 700MHz to 900MHz + 1710MHz to 2200MHz LTE band support
- CE, FCC certifications
- nRF52840 multiprotocol system on a chip (SoC)
- LTE-M/NB-IoT/GPS antennas
- Nano/4FF SIM card slot
- User-programmable button and RGB LEDs
- Environmental sensor for temperature, humidity, air quality, and air pressure
- Color and light sensor
- Low-power accelerometer and high-g accelerometer
- 4 x NMOS transistors for external DC motors or LEDs
- Rechargeable Li-Po battery with 1440mAh capacity.
Assett Tracker Application On-Board
The Nordic Thingy:91 comes with a pre-loaded asset-tracking application that makes use of many of the on-kit sensors in addition to LTE-M and GPS which works from device to the cloud to provide users with a working out-of-the-box asset tracking and monitoring experience when they receive the Thingy:91. the asset tracker application is richly featured for this usecase, however Nordic Thingy:91 can be programmed with any dedicated application of your choice.
State-of-the-art Security with Arm Trustzone
Security is critically important to IoT. The nRF9160 takes the latest addition to Cortex-M architectures by using Arm TrustZone for secure boot and secure execution within the device. The technology has been the mainstay of secure operation in Cortex-A devices and is typically used to build secure operation in smartphones and tablets.
Based around nRF9160 SiP for LTE-M & NB-IoT
Built around the nRF9160 system-in-Package (SiP), nRF9160 has a separate application/radio modem architecture. It incorporates the latest Arm Cortex-M33 as a dedicated application processor. The dedicated radio system can support both LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies. The radio also supports GPS for precise positioning in your applications. The nRF9160 SiP integrates a full front-end RF system together with a complete power management system.
Develop Cellular IoT and Bluetooth Hybrid Applications
Nordic Thingy:91 has Nordic’s flagship multiprotocol SoC for short-range application, the nRF52840. The nRF52840 supports multiprotocol performance with a broad range of protocols including Bluetooth 5 and NFC. Short-range wireless has some very exciting possibilities when used in conjunction with cellular IoT technology and Nordic Thingy:91 enables you to explore these possibilities.
