Reference circuitry

To ensure good RF performance when designing PCBs, using the PCB layouts and component values provided by Nordic Semiconductor is highly recommended .

Documentation for the different package reference circuits, including Altium Designer files, PCB layout files, and PCB production files can be downloaded from the product page at

This section contains reference circuitry showing the components to support the design of on-chip features.

Note: This is not a complete list of configurations, but all required circuitry is shown for further configurations.
