BLE Nano is the smallest Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy (BLE) development board in the market. The core is Nordic nRF51822 (an ARM Cortex-M0 SoC plus BLE capability) running at 16MHz with ultra low power consumption.

Developing a Bluetooth Smart enabled 'appcessory' (accessory device + companion application) is easier than ever. You can quickly produce protypes and demos target for Internet of Things (IoT) and other interesting projects. BLE Nano could operate under 1.8V to 3.3V, therefore it works with a lot of electronic components.

Current supported BLE central devices:

iOS 7 or 8

  • iPhone 4s
  • iPhone 5/6 (all models)
  • iPod touch 5
  • iPad 3/4/mini/Air

Android 4.3 or above (4.4 recommended for stability) with Bluetooth 4.0 hardware support

Windows Phone 8.1

  • Nokia Lumia 630

Programming

There are three options to program your BLE Nano with MK20 USB Board.

Nordic nRF51822 BLE SDK
If you want the full power of nRF51822, you should use Nordic nRF51822 BLE SDK, we provide a product key for all registered users* of our BLE Nano to download the SDK.
We have prepared a guide "Firmware Development with nRF51822 SDK" to show you how to use the SDK with ARM GCC.

mbed's Bluetooth Low Energy API
The mbed platform, developed by ARM, provides free software libraries and online tools for professional rapid prototyping of products based on ARM microcontrollers. Their Bluetooth Low Energy Development Team has released the mbed BLE API together with 10+ samples.
"Getting Started with nRF51822" guide shows you how to start programming with mbed.

Arduino Library for nRF51822
We have developed an Arduino library for nRF51822 which will be open-sourced and publicly available in the future; it is still at pre-release stage but we invite all interested registered users* of our BLE Nano to access the pre-release library and sample sketches including BLE Controller, Beacon, Heart Rate Monitor etc. Please refer to  "Getting Started with nRF51822" guide for more details.

RedBear MK20 USB v1.0

It originally runs the CMSIS-DAP firmware, but ARM mbed has will not support it and provides another solution called DAPLink. The MK20 USB v1.0 board can be updated to use the DAPLink firmware since it has enough flash memory (128KB).

 

RedBear MK20 USB v1.5

This hardware version cannot update to DAPLink firmware since it only has 64KB flash.

 

RedBear DAPLink 1.0 (using STM32F103 chip)

This is the latest version that running ARM mbed’s DAPLink firmware, the source code is in the github.

 

Users can update to latest firmware for the dongle:
