Flashing and Debugging nRF51/52 with a cheap blackmagic probe compatible SWD programmer

image description

When we built our Bluey nRF52 BLE dev board, we were looking for an inexpensive option for our users to upload code to bluey and debug it using ARM GDB. We then came across the blackmagic probe (BMP) project - an Open Source debugging tool for embedded microprocessors. It greatly simplifies the debugging and code uploading process using just ARM GDB - no need to run a GDB server or use an additional complex tool like openocd. Although the BMP hardware is excellent, it's bit beyond the budget of our target audience as an add-on programmer. But luckily, their firmware supports...
