nRF52 (Bluetooth low energy / BLE, ANT, 2.4GHz and NFC) / nRF52832

Nordic - Reference Design

"The nRF52 Series re-defines the world of possibilities for Bluetooth® low energy sensors and devices for the IoT area. Running at 64MHz it racks up impressive stats: EEMBC Coremark® score of 215 and 58 Coremark®/mA. Built in a cutting edge 55nm process technology the nRF52 Series is architected for todays need for speed, speed to carry out increasingly complex tasks in the shortest possible time and return to sleep, conserving precious battery power. Introducing a Cortex-M4F processor at its heart, it is the most capable Bluetooth low energy SoC on the market today." 
nRF52 Series SoC

Nordic Semiconductor nRF52x32 series are for for Bluetooth® low energy (BLE), ANT 2.4GHz, and NFC, good for sensors and device for the IoT (Internet of Things) world.
Murata is supporting reference design of nRF52x32 as nRF52832 SoC with Ceramic Capacitor, Inductor, Cristal unit (Resonator) and Low pass LC filter.
