I realize that there are already multiple tutorials on how to configure GCC along with Eclipse or SEGGER Embedded Studio (for use on a Mac), but this tutorial goes over setting up a different IDE. The more choices the better, right? ;)The IDE of choice for me is NetBeans. NetBeans is well known for Java development but not as much for C/C++ or embedded. However, I personally have been using it for embedded development for about 10 years now (both embedded Linux and MCU-level development). In this tutorial...

Bluetooth 5 - now arriving in smartphonesAs we know, Bluetooth 5 was launched last December by the Bluetooth SIG. The nRF52 Series from Nordic have always had Bluetooth 5 and its arrival in the mix for the nRF52 Series and this family of SoCs was designed early on to be able to meet the exciting new features of Bluetooth 5. Smartphones play such a key role in most Bluetooth products that their adoption of new Bluetooth features is always eagerly anticipated, as this is fundamental to the use of new...

Most guides out there are unclear and made for machines. Here is a full guide how to setup Segger for mac OS X with some example project from the SDK ( or even a PC but not tested), and also how to debug like a human not using terminal. ( or using it if you feel more clever)All steps here most be done for every project(except step 10), thats because the hardware industry is still stuck in the 90's, and UI/UX are new terms for them.While Eclipse is slightly more into 2000's , setting it up is...

The board which I have shows only 1 LED glowing on start up. LED 1 is not blinking. Should I have to change the board?...

I’m getting an LMP Response Timeout disconnect reason about 50% of the time when trying to get the nRFConnect App running on either an Android Pixel or iPhone 7 (running the latest OS versions) to connect to the pca10040 dev board. I’m running the experimental_ble_app_multiperipheral_pca10040_s132 example project on the PCA10040 dev board. This issue only occurs when the PERIPHERAL_LINK_COUNT is more than 2. We are hoping to use this example application as a starting point for a project that we recent...

The design I'm working on will tentatively use "Original SPI" (like "Original Coke" ...), so I started cutting up the QSPI bridges to disconnect DIO2 and DIO3 (which are also other things ...) prior to pulling them up to Vcc.Has anyone else done this? I'm comfy working under a microscope, but I'm an old geezer fart and I'm always looking for huge pads and buttons and knobs and dials I can use....
