Very often, while working with Bluetooth LE devices, we encountered a problem having to repeat a sequence of operations to test or demonstrate some functionality. Writing a mobile app every time to show couple of buttons that interact with a device was costly and boring. A more generic and easy to use solution was required.
Our first approach, the automated tests, allowed to prepare an XML script with sets of operations that were automatically performed producing a report as a result. Automated tests appeared in nRF Connect for Android (known back then as nRF Master Control Panel...
With the nRF52840, we released our first System-on-Chip (SoC) with a radio that is capable of running the IEEE 802.15.4 PHY, additionally to Bluetooth 5 (Bluetooth Low Energy), ANT+, and proprietary 2.4 GHz protocols. In March 2017, we released our first software solution running on top of the IEEE 802.15.4 PHY - nRF5 SDK for Thread in version 0.8.0, supporting the OpenThread stack.
Since nRF52840 supports multiple radio protocols, applications running on this SoC can use several radio protocols. With the release of nRF5 SDK for Thread in...
Released in December 2016, the new Bluetooth 5 offers truly exciting possibilities for home, industry, and commerce as well as the more traditional areas of wearables and personal devices historically associated with Bluetooth.
Nordic’s nRF52832 is a Bluetooth 5-ready SoC that combines an ARM Cortex-M4F microprocessor with a 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio, supporting Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
Zerynth provides a platform for programming nRF52832 boards in Python using paradigms and features typical of personal computer (PC) and mobile programming.
Enabling the use of Python for Microcontrollers and embedded solutions, Zerynth allows:
