nRF Connect SDK v1.4.1 Release Notes¶
nRF Connect SDK delivers reference software and supporting libraries for developing low-power wireless applications with Nordic Semiconductor products. It includes the MCUboot and the Zephyr RTOS open source projects, which are continuously integrated and re-distributed with the SDK.
The nRF Connect SDK is where you begin building low-power wireless applications with Nordic Semiconductor nRF52, nRF53, and nRF91 Series devices. nRF53 Series devices (which are pre-production) and Zigbee and Bluetooth mesh protocols are supported for development in v1.4.1 for prototyping and evaluation. Support for production and deployment in end products is coming soon.
