The company will host numerous static and interactive demonstrations of Bluetooth Smart technology based on the proven nRF51 and recently-launched 64 MHz ARM® Cortex®-M4F microprocessor-powered nRF52 Series BluetoothSmart Systems-on-Chip (SoC). Key applications include smart home, Internet of Things (IoT), smartwatch technology, wireless charging, and remote control.

In addition, the company will showcase Software Development Kits (SDK) such as the nRF5 SDK, an Internet of Things (IoT) design tool that uniquely allows developers to commission Bluetooth Smart end node "things" to an IPv6 over Bluetooth Smart network from a smartphone app, and reference designs such as the nRFready Smart Remote 3, an advanced Bluetooth Smart remote controller.

Furthermore, partners which have designed innovative Bluetooth Smart-based products using Nordic’s nRF51 and nRF52 Series SoCs will demonstrate and talk about their developments. The partners include:

BeKey SmartLock is a wirelessly-operated lock that can be fitted to the inside of most existing and new doors, allowing the user to open the door using an electronic key via Bekey’s app on their iOS or Android Bluetooth Smart Ready smartphone or tablet.

Bluetooth Smart wireless connectivity is booming. In the smart home sector, for example, the wireless technology is used to connect heating, lighting, security, and other domestic appliances to automated, intelligent control systems, smartphones and the Internet. U.S. analyst ON World forecasts that by 2020, there will be over 100 million Internet connected wireless light bulbs and lamps worldwide, up from 2.4 million this year. And analyst MarketsandMarkets predicts that today’s $20 billion smart home sector will expand to nearly $59 billion by 2020.
