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...

Gazell nRF51822

Does the s210 softdevice not function on the nRF51822? I see it available for the nRF51422 [here](https://www.nordicsemi.com/eng/nordic/Products/nRF51422/S210-SD-v4/26315) but it is listed under the 51422 only.I have a v1.1.0 PCA10031 (nrf51422) and have written an LED blink example with s210 linked in and it works. If I take the same code and load it on a v2.2.0 PCA10000 (nRF51822) it does not work. Is this expected? Can the nRF51822 run Gazell or is it BLE and (enhanced) shockburst only?I see several hi...

Just want to confirm I can be i2c master with zephyr rtos for nrf52 pca10040.In link (https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/blogs/1059/nrf5x-support-within-the-zephyr-project-rtos/) titled "nRF5x support within the Zephyr Project RTOS"Device Drivers"Broad range of external sensor drivers for common devices"Through menuconfig I can enable I2c for nrf with no mention of experimental or not yet supported. I am not exactly sure what you can do with the RTOS without general features including i2c,...
