nRF Connect SDK Installation

The nRF9160 SiP currently supports ZephyrRTOS. To access all the features and capabilities, Nordic Semiconductor has developed the nRF Connect SDK (NCS) that enables you to develop applications for nRF52, nRF53, and nRF91 Series devices.
To make nRF Connect SDK installation a breeze, follow the following steps.
  • Download and install a cross-platform tool nRF Connect for Desktop for your operating system.
  • Install and run the nRF Connect tool on your machine.
  • Click Install next to the Toolchain manager as shown below.
The Toolchain Manager window
  • Once the Toolchain manager is installed, click open.

The Conexio Stratus sample applications are currently compatible with nRF Connect SDK v1.7.0 & V2.1.1.
  • Select nRF Connect SDK v1.7.0 or V2.1.1 and click Install. Depending on your internet speed, it may take a few tens of minutes, so go and grab yourself a cup of coffee
