The nRF51 products do not appear in the 'Products' list on the Home Page:
Are they deprecated, or "no longer recommended" ?
If you go via the 'Products' link right down at the bottom of the Home page, the nRF51822 is there:
But not nRF51422 nor nRF51824
The nRF5 SDK link from the nRF51 product pages does not take you to the appropriate SDK version, and does not mention that the latest version is not suitable!
I've reported it to product management and I'm awaiting a reply. nRF51 is definitely not deprecated, but I believe it is in the "not recommended for new development" phase.
thanks - will look forward to confirmation / further details ...
The nRF51 series is not to be found under the BLE section because we do not recommend it for new BLE designs. This is because we won't update the SoftDevices with new features and compliance with future BLE specs. They're still great options for proprietary protocols.The SDK10 reference is shown when the SoftDevice S110 or S120 are selected. S130 is the only SoftDevice for the nRF51 that is supported by SDK12.3

Ah - I see now.
I think that really needs to be made clear on the product page
I'll let Marketing know :)
