The NRF51822 Bluetooth Low Energy mbug board from y5 Design is an easy to use ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller with BLE. This board can be used as a standalone system or stacked with other mbugs to create multifunctional systems. Part of mbug™ ecosystem Smaller than a quarter, atapproximately 0.9" x 0.9" Can be used as a standalone microcontroller or with other mbugs (sensors, displays, relay, servo, battery, etc.) 12 different mbugs (2 processors, 9 expansion, 1 prototype) stackable 1...

 Bluz is a brand new development kit that brings Bluetooth LE to the internet. We have paired up with Spark and ported their FW to the nrf51822, allowing Bluz to be controlled and programmed over the air from anywhere in the world. We will release several gateways that allow bluz to always be online, even when smartphones aren't nearby.We have launched Bluz on Kickstarter, so you can pre-order bluz and accessory shields and gateways now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/264813863/bluz-bluetooth-m...

The following is the estimated nRF51 current consumption during advertising with the DCDC disabled. Advertising 1: TX power: +4dBm adv interval: 20ms (minimum advertising interval in normal adversising mode) payload: 10 bytes application processing: 2ms each adv interval.Average current consumption: 1794 uA Advertising 2: TX power: +4dBm adv interval: 1200ms payload: 10 bytes application processing: 2ms each adv interval.Average current consumption: 33,4 uA Advertising 3:...

I want to know the max value that we can put in APP_TIMER_TICKS in x. #define APP_TIMER_PRESCALER 0APP_TIMER_TICKS(x, APP_TIMER_PRESCALER)...

Hi,I want to use BLE for following situation and I wonder if it is achievable.I have a 3 boards with nrf51822. Two of these boards have mpu6050 sensors connected to nrf51822 via TWI (I2C). These two boards work as BLE peripheral and server. Third board is BLE central and client device. What I want to do is:1. read data via I2C from sensors on each peripheral2. send data from both peripherals to central via BLE.3. send collected data from central via UART (to computer). Generally central works as USB BLE d...

Hi,I am using the nRF24L01+ evaluation kit in a project. Through the EV KIT software I am able to configure the nRF module in receiver mode. I can even see LED 2 light up when it is receiving packets. My question is how can I verify the content of the data being received. The software is not giving any options for seeing any data output or dumping the data somewhere.Burhan...
