How to given power for nRF8002 chip?Pin 1-4 used for supplying power,but i didn't know the how power is given(1.9 - 3.6 V).nRF8002 development kit is the only solution for configuring this soc?

Data sheet for nRF8002 soc

Thanks for your valuable comments in advance.

    \$\begingroup\$ It sounds like you probably have some sort of module as those pin numbers don't match the datasheet. You should mention what it is and give a link to a datasheet or product information. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ That IC SoC has 17 power pins, and yes, they all have to be connected. If you don't want to buy a dev-kit, you will have to have a custom PCB made for the IC. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 12, 2014 at 10:35

If you don't want to use a Development Kit you will need to design your custom PCB for that IC.

To power the IC you will need connect all power pins as said the datasheet:

enter image description here

Where VDD is the Power (1.9 - 3-6V) and the VSS is the Ground (0V).

The recommend voltage to this IC is 3.3V, and have a lot of switch power supplys designs for this voltage, you can use this tool to create your own, with BOM, schematic and PCB if you want.

If you do not care to use exactly this IC you could simple use some Bluetooth Module with some simple MCU like an Arduino.
