Arduino NANO BLE 33 Sense

Arduino recently launched a new version of NANO with a powerfully 32-bit ARM M4 core, 64Mhz speed, 1Mb Flash and 256 Mb SRAM. And this is just the beginning.

It’s MCU is nRF52840 that also contains a BLE Radio and SW stack. It has all the features you expect from a modern M4, but it is more on this board than just the MCU w/BLE.

Located on the Sense version NANO 33 you will find five different components:

  • LSM9DS1 with  3D accelerometer, 3D gyroscope and 3D magnetometer.
  • MP34DT05-A with microphone.
  • APDS-9960 with Digital Proximity, Ambient light, RGB and Gesture Sensor.
  • LPS22HB with Altimeter and Barometer.
  • HTS221 with Humidity and Temperature.

The board is a bit expensive – 27.- EUR + P&P + another 35.- EUR in customs to Norway. I probably paid ca 80.- EUR for my sample, so I will not be buying more.
