BLE DEVKIT.N just went out of stock again. For us it is also a good news, in other side it push us to speed with the next batch. It will be ready till end of the week.
We just released the 3th revision of the BLE DEV.N board. It has a nice battery holder and reset button (bottom side), so much for a such small size. You can check the BLE.DEV.N R3 UM v1.0 document for detailed description. It will allow you easy to develop your next project but this time also to power it with a CR1216 battery, in order to become real “wireless” product.
- 32 bit, ARM Cortext™ M0
- Access to all pins
- Easy tracing via printf redirecting to serial communication port
- 4 LEDs (1 Green, 1 Red, 1 Yellow, 1 Blue), 2 user buttons
- Hardware improvements over R1
- Upload custom code using on board USB-Serial connection, removing the need of external/additional programmer BLE DEV.N DFU v1.0 (BLE DEV.N Device Firmware Updates)
- BLE.DEV.N R3 UM v1.0 BLE.DEV.N User Manual R3 v1.0
- Board can be programmed with J-Trace for Cortex-M, ST-LINK/V2, ST-LINK/V2 from STM32F3DISCOVERY and of course over the Air and USB via pre-programmed bootloader
- RESET button, added in R3
- Battery holder for CR1216, added in R3
From today BlueWeather Station App is available at the App Store. Of course if you want to use it, you need at least one peace of the hardware. If you want to be one of the first owners alway can write us in order to find out how and when you can buy one.
We just made the first batch of the BLE DEV.N R3. It is the revision 3 of the successful test BLE DEV.N R2 board based on nRF51822 SoC, allowing you easy to start testing and developing Bluetooth Low Energy hardware. Soon we will update the product site with detail information about features added in this release.
Just uploaded new video in which you can see how easy is to use and browse between BlueWeather Stations with the BlueWeather Station App. I hope soon to be on App Store. Video is recorded on iPhone 5. Switching between stations, checking the 24h history of the recorded weather conditions, summary view of all available stations around you, all just with few finger moves.
Next big thing on which we are working is the over-the-air (OTA) update with NRF51882 SoftDevice version 7. There is lot of work and testing going on, so I hope to post the results soon. PStorage and boot loader wait, we are coming….
It is coming a very interesting Bluetooth Low Energy training at London 2014 (Bluetooth Innovation Training). Major players in the field of BLE hardware like Nordicsemi and CSR will be there too.
“The Bluetooth Special Interest Group, along with co-sponsors CSR, Frontline Test Equipment, and Nordic Semiconductor have created this special one-day training to give you everything you need to get started in the exciting Bluetooth and appcessory development world.”
I think will be interesting to meet hardware and software at one place. It will be covered big part of developing process, testing and certification.
Hope to see some of you there. Namaste!
