Support for nRF52810 limited @anchor compatibility_nRF52810

The mesh stack is compatible with the nRF52810 platform, but this specific platform is not supported by the current version of the nRF5 SDK for Mesh.

This platform is very limited in both Flash and RAM, therefore it does not currently support DFU, and logging is disabled to save flash. Furthermore, the nRF52810 must be compiled with optimization for size, that is with one of the following options based on your building approach choice:

  • for CMake: -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=MinSizeRel
  • for Segger Embedded Studio: ReleaseWithDebugInformation setting enabled

For these reasons, the following examples do not support nRF52810 and can be run only on the fully compatible Development Kits:

Support for nRF51 deprecated @anchor compatibility_nRF51

nRF51 is no longer officially supported. The examples are built for the nRF5 SDK v16.0 and the SoftDevices S113, S132 and S140, and do not support nRF51.
