Nordic produce a good range of ARM Cortex based System on a Chip (SoC) microcontrollers. We have had good results with the Nordic devices on a number of projects however, getting started with them can be a bit of a challenge as the documentation is a bit sketchy. We have included a few examples to try and help get you going.
What you will need
In order to try out these examples you will need the following items:
- Nordic microcontroller or development board. The examples here use the BL652 Adapter Board which is based on the popular nRF52832 SoC.
- Programmer for the microcontroller. The examples here use the Raspberry Pi SWD Programmer
- Tools to compile firmware source code
Full instructions for building and flashing the examples can be found here.
- Blinky Simple project to flash an LED
- Blinky SWO Builds on Blinky and adds printf style output over the SWO pin
- Blinky ADC analog to digital conversion example
- Simple BLE Simple BLE example
- Simple BLE with configuration data in UICR builds on Simple BLE and adds reading configuration data from the User Information Configuration Registers
