Cannot connect to ATECC508A through TWI with NRF52832. Tested with nRF5_SDK_12 twi_master and deprecated twi_sw_master. It was working fine only with NRF51822 nRF5_SDK_12 using deprecated twi_sw_master.

Have you checked that you have connected the correct pins defined in your code? Do you get any error codes? Have you checked the bus using a logic analyzer, to see if there are any activity?

Pins are ok. Using latest SDK driver nrf_drv_twi.c code stays forever in loop

while (!nrf_twim_event_check(p_twim, evt_to_wait))
            if (nrf_twim_event_check(p_twim, NRF_TWIM_EVENT_ERROR))
                NRF_LOG_DEBUG("TWIM: Event: %s.\r\n",
                nrf_twim_event_clear(p_twim, NRF_TWIM_EVENT_ERROR);
                nrf_twim_task_trigger(p_twim, NRF_TWIM_TASK_RESUME);
                nrf_twim_task_trigger(p_twim, NRF_TWIM_TASK_STOP);
                evt_to_wait = NRF_TWIM_EVENT_STOPPED;

I check the bus with logic analyzer.

What is the error reported in NRF_TWIM_EVENT_ERROR? You can enable debug logging in the TWI module by setting TWI_CONFIG_LOG_ENABLED 1 and TWI_CONFIG_LOG_LEVEL 4 in sdk_config.h.
