Expertly developed for Bluetooth Smart, ANT and other 2.4GHz wireless applications, the Nordic Semiconductor nRF51 Dongle features a development platform based on the nRF51 series of wireless System-on-Chips and supports both the nRF51822 and nRF51422 devices. The Dongle comes with the nRF51422 SoC and supports the Nordic Software Development tool-chain using Keil, IAR and GCC. That’s as well as supporting the ARM mbed cloud-based IDE and tool-chain.
With versatility in mind, the dongle can also be configured as a Bluetooth Smart packet sniffer using Nordic nRF Sniffer software. Plus, the Master Emulator firmware and Master Control Panel Software lets you run a peer device that tests the connection of your application. The nRF51 dongle supports all Nordic SoftDevices.
