nRF IEEE 802.15.4: Serialization RPMsg


This sample exposes IEEE 802.15.4 radio driver support to another device or CPU using the RPMsg transport which is a part of OpenAMP.


  • A board with nRF53 SoC

Building and Running

This sample can be found under samples/boards/nrf/ieee802154/802154_rpmsg in the Zephyr tree.

To use this application, you need a board with nRF53 SoC. You can then build this application and flash it onto your board in the usual way. See Supported Boards for board-specific building and programming information.

To test this sample, you need a separate device/CPU that acts as 802.15.4 serialization RPMsg peer. This sample is compatible with the Nordic 802.15.4 serialization. See the CONFIG_NRF_802154_SER_HOST configuration option for more information.

The sample is configured to be energy efficient by disabling:
  • Serial Console (in prj.conf)

  • Logger (in prj.conf)
