yesterday i ordered th nrf52 Development Kit an just had a look in the Errata infocenter.nordicsemi.com/index.jsp So if i get my Development Board, will all this stuff marked up in Errata not working to me?
Nrf52 will support I2S and PDM, so in future will it be theoreticaly possible to making phone calls with nrf52, so Microphone and Speaker ? And will Nordic give support for this, any I2S example in the future?
Yes all the stuff in the errata will not be working in the preview development kit with the current engineering release of the chip.
Since Nordic writes example code for everything else, expecting an I2S example in the future seems quite likely doesn't it?
I also ordered nRF52 hoping to try I2S but then was a bit upset after reading Errata. Now my main hope is that new chip revision comes out soon and I can replace the chip on the kit, shouldn't be that difficult as it is QFN as I can see.
I'm not too hopeful of the new revision coming out so soon, all I've read so far says end of the year.
I have no idea how you replace a QFN! I'm sure I couldn't even start to do it. I was expecting to have to waste the board when the next dev version comes out.
Hmm, end of the year is not that good. As for QFN 0.4mm pitch, it is doable. Anyway, not good news all in all.
Thanks for your comments. I think i will do the same, the company i am working for can solder qfn chips, i would never try something like this :D.
So does some one know when DKs with new chip revision will be shipped? Really end of year?
It would be nice if some one from nordic could give us some informations.
