The previous update showed you how to install Eclipse and all the libraries required to write Bluetooth firmware. In this update we'll explore how easy it is to write Bluetooth firmware with it IOsonata library. Read the full update.
Some people think Eclipse is difficult to use, mainly because they don't know how to get started. But, using Eclipse isn't any harder than Keil, IAR, or SES. Unsuccessful installation is mostly due to bad tutorials, especially those from Nordic themselves. So, in this step-by-step tutorial, I will show you how easy it is to install the Eclipse development environment. Read the full update.
It's been a while, and I haven't posted an update in a while. I'd like to announce that we are launching another project on Crowd Supply! BLYST840 is a new fingertip size module based on the nRF52840. Read the full update.
Again, thank you very much for your support of this project! All campaign and pre-orders have now been shipped. We have contributed to the Micropython codebase and you can now port Micropython to BLYST Nano boards. It has officially been merged to the main git repo. Read the full update.
There is a stock shortage of the ICM-20948. The availability for this chip is in the mid-March time frame. Any orders including the Sensor board will now ship in early April, we apologize for the delay. Read the full update.
We'd like to appolozise for the delay in the production of the BLYST Nano sensor board. Initially, the design was based on the TDK MPU-9250, but by the time Crowd Supply campaign started that chip was announced end of life. Read the full update.
First, we'd like to thank you all very much for your support of the BLYST Nano. Read the full update.
Thanks you very much all for your support. The campaign is ending soon. After the campaign the price might be higher. Please help us to keep the price low by placing your pledge, as we need more volume for that. Read the full update.
The IDAP-Link has a special mode that allows flashing the nRF5x series via the COM port with a terminal program that support sending raw text files such as the CoolTerm. It is especially useful when you need to flash the nRF5x on a computer that does not have all the IDAP software installed. Here is how to use that mode. Read the full update.
Most, if not all, tiny modules are designed with compromises. They usually have two options: more I/O and hard to solder, or fewer I/O and easier to solder. The BLYST Nano, on the other hand, is design to be easy to solder without compromising I/O. The video below shows how easily you can hand solder it on the breakout board. Read the full update.
Electronics and computer programming began as a hobby in my teenager days. Read the full update.
