nRF51 (Bluetooth low energy / BLE, ANT & 2.4GHz) / nRF51422, nRF51822, nRF51824

Nordic - Reference Design

"The nRF51 Series is a family of highly flexible, multi-protocol, system-on-chip (SoC) devices for ultra-low power wireless applications. nRF51 Series devices support a range of protocol stacks including Bluetooth low energy (previously called Bluetooth Smart), ANT and proprietary 2.4GHz protocols such as Gazell. nRF51 Series devices are also on-air-compatible with existing nRF24L products from Nordic Semiconductor." 
nRF51 Series SoC

Nordic Semiconductor nRF51x22 series are for for Bluetooth® low energy (BLE), ANT and 2.4GHz.
Murata is supporting reference design of nRF51x22 as nRF51422, nRF51822, and nRF51922 with Ceramic Capacitor, Inductor, Cristal unit (Resonator) and Balun.
