 Believe it or not, the day has come when your coffee machine could know what exactly what kind of coffee you like to drink depending on the cup you’re using, the time of day, and a multitude of other factors. Earlier this year, the Nordic Semiconductor team demonstrated a smart coffee machine at CES that brewed coffee over IPv6. But coffee machines aren’t the only place where innovation is possible. As a leader in Bluetooth Smart solutions you will find our chips in products all around your home...

When designing a PCB with nRF51, nRF51822 or nRF51422, there are some rules that should be followed in order to get a good working radio/system, with a maximized range.General rule The RF part of the schematic and layout should be a copy of our reference design. It means that not only the component values, but also the geometry, relative placement of the components with respect to each other, and the lengths of the transmission lines should be the same as in our reference design. The reference design for ...

When using nRF8001 with an Arduino board, Atmel Studio is a good free tool to use for development of your firmware. The following video shows a procedure in Atmel Studio in order to enable debugging of Arduino code. It was created with Atmel Studio 6.1 and Visual Micro (Arduino plugin for Atmel Studio)...

Curious if there are any available bit-bang TWI routines available for the nRF24LU1?Thanks!-Tim...

I am implementing dual bank DFU on the PCA10001 board using the latest SDK (7.2.0) and S110(7.1.0). I am able to enter bootloader from my app as detailed here:http://developer.nordicsemi.com/nRF51_SDK/doc/7.2.0/s110/html/a00066.htmlThe board is advertising dfuTarg, and I can connect and discover services through MCP. I then use the DFU button in MCP and choose the hex file for the application code I want to load onto the board (I have yet to try updating the SD or bootloader OTA). I small window pops up w...
