nRF8001 Development Kit

nRFgo Development Kit for nRF8001
Active
Overview

Description

The nRF8001-DK can be interfaced directly as a shield to Arduino Uno, Mega and Leonardo boards using the Arduino adapter board in the kit. The nRF8001 Development Kit enables engineers to do evaluation, application prototyping and firmware development with the nRF8001 Bluetooth® Smart Connectivity IC.

The kit includes an nRF8001 radio module, and a Bluetooth Smart master emulator board.

The master emulator connects to a PC via USB to provide a master peer device for the nRF8001 and enable monitoring and control of a peer-to-peer Bluetooth Smart wireless connection.

The nRF8001 Development Kit also supports application development using 3rd party application microcontrollers by simply connecting the nRF8001 radio module to the 3rd party microcontroller development kit using patch cables. An Arduino adapter board comes with the kit allowing it to be directly interfaced to Arduino Uno, Mega and Leonardo boards, as well as other boards, as a Bluetooth Smart shield.

 

The nRF8001 SDK is also designed to be easily portable to 3rd party microcontrollers
