Nordic Semiconductor announced it has partnered with Memfault, to enable developers using its nRF91, nRF53, and nRF52 Series low power cellular IoT and short range wireless solutions to access the ‘Memfault’ remote debugging and monitoring platform via its nRF Connect SDK.

The integration of the platform in the nRF Connect SDK provides Nordic customers free access to all the features of the Memfault platform.

Memfault provides out-of-the-box remote debugging features and fault analysis capabilities that can significantly reduce costs and save time.

Developers using the nRF Connect SDK with the Memfault platform receive notifications directly through the intuitive Cloud portal when a fault occurs. The interface displays the status of the device fleet and detailed reports with tailored diagnostic information for analysis.

Memfault’s fault aggregation techniques show the existence of a specific fault across the entire population of devices. The frequency of occurrence, number of affected devices, and fault occurrence timeline will allow developers to identify if a specific device type or software update could have resulted in a problem and what impact it is having.

The information provided may help developers locate the core source of a problem and push updates to repair it, while also reducing the resolution time from days to minutes and lowering the engineering and support overhead.
