nRF9161 Overview

Nordic Semiconductor's nRF9161 DK is an affordable certified single board system-in-package (SiP) development kit for connectivity to the Cellular Internet of Things and LTE-M, NB-IoT, GNSS and to the DECT NR+ 5G network.

It features a dedicated antenna for LTE-M, NB-IoT and DECT NR+ that supports a wide frequency range for global operation. The nRF9161 DK has the same coverage as the nRF9161 SiP.

The PCB also features an integrated patch antenna for GNSS, and SWF RF connectors are provided for RF signal characterization measurements. Both antenna connectors also allow the use of external antennas.

The nRF9161 DK has a nano/4FF and MFF2 format SIM card slot to support plug-in and soldered (e)SIM cards. The kit comes with a SIM card preloaded with free data. The nRF9161 DK also supports the use of a software SIM card, further reducing power consumption. Programming and debugging are performed using the integrated SEGGER J-Link module.

The nRF9161 DK is supported by a full suite of software, tools and development resources, including Nordic developers' Cellular IoT Fundamentals course. The nRF9161 DK comes pre-flashed with a serial LTE modem application for communication using AT commands.
