The Nordic NRF6916 nRFready µBlue Desktop is no longer available and has been replaced by the Nordic NRF6928 nRFReady nRF51 Desktop Kit.
The nRFready µBlue Desktop is a complete hardware and software reference design for completing aBluetooth Smart keyboard and mouse. The design is based upon Nordic’s nRF8001 Bluetooth Smart connectivity IC and the Cortex M0 MCU. This design combines Nordic’s connectivity simplicity with the industry’s leading ultra-low power microcontroller core the ARM Cortex-MO MCU.

The nRFready μBlue Desktop is based on Nordic's market-leading μBlue nRF8001 Bluetooth low energy Connectivity IC combined with an ultra-low power LPC1100 series ARM® Cortex™-M0 flash microcontroller from NXP Semiconductors. It provides wireless computer peripheral makers with a complete and proven hardware and software reference design that significantly cuts down on development risk, time, and cost. It also delivers a wireless mouse and keyboard battery life performance comparable to Nordic's market-leading proprietary 2.4GHz RF solutions – a first for Bluetooth wireless technology. Based on the new Human Interface Device (HID) over Generic Attribute Profile (GATT) specification recently adopted by the Bluetooth SIG, the design provides dongle-less connectivity with Bluetooth Smart Ready computers (asBluetooth low energy-compatible hub devices will now be marketed to consumers).
