Hello.I was spending the last few days to implement an interface to access the BLE mesh via the Internet. The mesh consists of devices with LEDs, which then could be turned on and off in my browser.The entry point for my local devices is a Spark Core, which is accessible from the spark.io cloud service via a web browser. That's a nice feature to control all kinds of devices easily from a website.SetupWe will use the following devices and software: nRF51-Dongle(PCA10031) flashed with rbc_gateway_example_...

As many have noticed, Keil 5 does not have native support for Keil 4 projects (project files ending with uvproj), it only has native support for Keil 5 projects (project files ending with uvprojx). However, many of the examples provided in older versions of nRF51 SDK are only supported by Keil 4, i.e. only contain Keil 4 projects. Also, many of the examples available on Nordic Github contain only Keil 4 project. It is however possible to to make Keil 5 support both Keil 5 and Keil 4 projects. These are th...

OverviewThe UriBeacon design allows a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) device to periodically transmit an ADV packet that contains a URI. This technology enables any device, place or thing to become a beacon through physical association. As a consequence UriBeacon enables any object in the physical world to transmit a URI over a short distance (typically 20-30 feet), and is an enabling technology to support the Physical Web paradigm. By providing discovery, search, and control (using web pages) based on ...

I'm actually writing some data to the flash. I'm using pstorage api interface.But whenever I flash the new firmware, I get some garbage data.in my main function I would like to know that, after flashing a new firmware, it started for the first time, so I clear the garbage data, and want to make sure it is not result of a reset or a manual reset etc.Thanks...

HelloI'm trying to send a dataset from the nRF51-DK over BLE to an iOS device. The total data to be sent is around 500 kB. What is the best method for transmitting this data quickly and what are the optimum BLE settings to achieve this? I am testing this using the iOS nRF UART app.I am currently using the ble_app_uart_s110_pca10028 example in Keil v5. I have the code working sending strings of bytes using ble_nus_string_send command but it seems a bit slow. From reading other questions here on Devzone suc...

Since related topic [Is BLE changing licensing policy?](https://devzone.nordicsemi.com/question/5148/is-ble-changing-licensing-policy/) was marked as resolved I moved my question to new one.My company is ready to get SIG membership for BLE usage and pay the fee. The only question is whether we need to pass qualification test if:1. we are not going to use any Bluetooth logo or trademark on box, device2. device will use the only proprietary BLE service3. we don't even want to be compatible with any other pr...
