Adafruit BLE

Post by majenko » Mon Apr 04, 2016 3:39 pm

I have "bent" the Adafruit BLE UART library (for the nRF8001 chips) to work on chipKIT.

It won't work for you though - it requires the absolute bleeding-edge version of the SPI library from chipKIT-core (

Unless, that is, you're a UECIDE user when you get that version with your next plugins update.

I have had it working on a number of MX based boards, though the WiFire seems to not like it at the moment (probably something to do with SPI on it). It also works nicely with the Android app "nRF Toolbox for BLE" which has a handy UART based remote control function in it.

It even works with the RedBear Labs BLE shield.
Why not visit my shop?
