Bluetooth LE is ideal for Internet of Things applications where many low powered sensors or devices feed data through a gateway and out onto the internet. An optimal solution would move away from the use of smartphones, which are not always available, and move to a dedicated hardware gateway that can run off a mains power supply. This allows the battery powered devices to stay connected and available at all times around a central hub.A centralized hardware gateway can use any type of back-end connection (...

 Recently, Google introduced some news about Eddystone. At the same time, we released a first implementation of the new specification on GitHub to get developers started. I would like to share some insights on what this is all about.For those of you who are unfamiliar with Eddystone you can find detailed information on these websites: https://github.com/google/eddystone https://developers.google.com/beacons/ What’s new in Eddystone?A new Eddystone GATT Configuration Service enables simp...

We in the Nordic Support team have created an online power profiler to estimate the power consumption during a BLE event with different parameters. The profiler gives you information about the different components in a BLE event as well as the average current over a specified interval. All data is based on actual measurements conducted on the nRF52, and they are correlated with the BLE power profiles found in the SoftDevice specification to build a model which estimates the current components involved....

I know this question has been asked before, but I couldn't find an answer...I'm looking for an example of how to use the nRF52832's SWO feature with the SEGGER JLink product. I have a PCA10040 board that I can program and debug via Eclipse/GCC/Jlink. I would now like to use the SWO feature to simulate a virtual UART. (I realize that I could use the PCA10040's real UART but my eventual target doesn't have the UART so I want to use the SWO feature instead.)I have set the following additional defines in my o...

I previously used Jlink to upload code to my nrf51. However, the new units I got are "locked" and I need to use nrfgoStudio to unlock and fully erase the chip.Is there a command line way to do this to automate the process?...

Once we went for a tiny walk for the main park, we got luckily enough to see a horse program with many cowboys entirely cowboy attire getting intoxicated above their steed.Your tour company will choose you up at your hotel and just take one to the stop. You'll take a look at the 2-Day or 4-Day Inca Trail level, whichever you have signed up for. Both Inca Trail treks tend to be basically the same. The 4-Day trek takes more exertion, but you will supply the chance to see even more ruins and awesome scenery....
