nRF9160 DK Getting Started

This guide will help you get started with your nRF9160 DK. Before you start developing your own application, you should update the firmware (both the application firmware and the modem firmware) and the certificates of the Development Kit (DK) and conduct some initial tests.

The nRF9160 DK is a hardware development platform used to design and develop application firmware on the nRF9160 LTE Cat-M1 and Cat-NB1 System in Package (SiP). See nRF9160 DK Hardware for detailed information about the DK.

The DK is preprogrammed with the nRF9160: Asset Tracker application, which simulates sensor data and transmits it to Nordic Semiconductor's cloud solution, nRF Connect for Cloud. Both the Asset Tracker application and nRF Connect for Cloud are constantly being improved. Therefore, you should update the application and the modem firmware before you start working with the nRF9160 DK.
