Cut your development time

A helping hand
Most Bluetooth solutions utilize a smartphone, so when starting a design project the last thing you want is to reinvent the wheel.
Our range of mobile apps takes away the pain of trying to design both ends of a solution at the same time.
Everyone has a cellphone, so there is always a connectivity option to check the data is flowing as you expect.

iOS and Android
Our open framework gives developers the building blocks for iOS and Android apps, saving time in the development phase.
We work for cross-platform support, but some features in the apps may differ because the operating systems do work differently.
Once your application is up and running, the mobile apps can be used to tweak the design to reach the performance you and your customers expect.

Open Source Code

What we know, you know

An open framework
We take an open approach to source code so everyone benefits.
The code base for almost all our development apps is freely available on the Nordic Semiconductor repository at Github.

Such access gives developers a better understanding of the code and the freedom to debug, fix and enhance Bluetooth implementations independently of us.
You’re also free to take chunks of code from the library and use them in your own apps.
Of course, support is available should you need it through the Nordic Semiconductor DevZone.
