Nordic Semiconductor Development Board Numbers

Deciphering the complicated Development board numbering scheme of Nordic Semiconductors


It has been complicated to understand the cryptic number system of Nordic Semiconductor development boards.

They don’t mention it clearly in their infocenter site also.

I decided, I had enough trouble loosing hair on this one.

Solving this mystery was imperative.

Here goes an attempt to work out a list of them :

Hope that this would be a good future reference. Next time you see on of the those pac10xxx you know what it is.
