1 SDK 0.9.x is compatible with nRF52 Series only.
2 If workaround for anomaly 73 is implemented, nRF5 SDK 11.0.0 can be used for development purposes together with SoftDevice S132 2.0.0/S212 0.9.x/S332 0.9.x on nRF52832 Engineering B. For more information, see nRF52 Engineering B Errata or nRF5 SDK 11.0.0 release notes.
3 The S112 SoftDevice versions 5.1.0-2.alpha to 6.0.0 are intended to be run on the nRF52810 SoC. They may be used on the nRF52832 SoC for development purposes. They should not be used for production on the nRF52832 SoC.
4 The S132 SoftDevice v5.1.0 is drop-in compatible with the S132 SoftDevice v5.0.0 that is included in SDK v14.2.0. For more information, see the SDK release notes.
5 The S132 SoftDevice v6.0.0 and v6.1.x and the S112 SoftDevice v6.1.x utilize fixes in nRF52832 SoC revision 2 described in Informational Notice 105 and Errata 182.
6 nRF5 SDK v17.0.0 has been deprecated and replaced with nRF5 SDK v17.0.2.
7 MDK, build target, and drivers.
8 nRF Connect SDK.
