nRF51 Dongle is a low-cost, versatile USB development dongle for Bluetooth® Smart, ANT, and 2.4GHz proprietary applications using the nRF51 Series SoC. The dongle supports development for nRF51822
It supports the standard Nordic Software Development Tool-chain using Keil, IAR, and GCC, as well as the ARM mbed tool-chain for rapid prototyping and development using mbed’s cloud-based IDE and tool-chain with an extensive range of open-source software libraries. Program/Debug options on the kit are Segger J-Link OB for standard tool-chain and CMSIS-DAP for mbed.
It has a user-programmable RGB LED, button and 6 solder pads for GPIO/interface connections.
In addition to standard nRF51 Series development, the dongle can be used as a useful and highly cost-effective Bluetooth Smart packet sniffer using Nordic nRF Sniffer software allowing detailed data related to Bluetooth Smart communication to be captured and analyzed. Using the Master Emulator firmware and the Master Control Panel Software it enables setting up of a peer device that you can use to test the connection of your application.
