are there any plans for NRF52 USB development dongles (just like the NRF51 dongle)?
I am also interested in a an nRF52 dongle by Nordic.
We are very close to produce nRF52840 dongles without segger on board. you might be able to buy them in a month or so.
Any updates on this? Will they come preloaded with the bootloader?
Unfortunately, this has been delayed due to some unforeseen challenge. The latest news that it will be out in production in June end. Yes, they should be coming preloaded with a bootloader.
Hi Aryan,It looks like this dongle is now listed on the Nordic site:https://www.nordicsemi.com/eng/Products/nRF52840-Dongle
But it appears to be only available through Mouser starting in late August.https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Nordic-Semiconductor/nRF52840-Dongle?qs=gTYE2QTfZfTbdrOaMHWEZg==&utm_source=oemsecrets&utm_medium=aggregator&utm_campaign=nRF52840-Dongle&utm_term=nRF52840DONGLE&utm_content=Nordic+Semiconductor
Is this the only option for getting the nRF52 dongle?
You could try to get one from Avnet, they say they have it in stock right now.
Since I'm in the US, the below Symmetry Electronics link was easier and cheaper at $10 US.
Avnet appeared to have no stock in the US.
I placed the order for a few nrf52840 dongles with Symmetry Electronics, but they will follow up to let me know if they have stock, so we'll see if this works out...
