And it is so simple that your grandma can do it :).The nRF52832 have a built-in NFC radio (dynamic NFC Tag). So the additional cost to enable NFC pairing to your product is very low. In fact,...

I am using a nRF51822 to send data to an iOS device. Because latency is critical to my application, i 've set up a test program that sends a packet every second , using **notifications**. Sniffing the BLE traffic with nRF Sniffer i am seeing that Slave and Master (iOS device) exchange an Empty Data PDU every conn. interval which in my case is 14 ms roughly ( i assume the real value is 13.75 because must be a multiple of 1.25 ms). But prior to the Notification made by the Slave to the Master the conn. inte...
