The BLE Nano is the smallest Bluetooth Low Energy System-on-Chip (SoC) development board on the market. It’s great for smaller projects, consumes minimal power, and can be attached to the breadboard with headers, rather than jumper cables (soldering required). You can develop applications using Nordic’s SDK, mbed.org, or RedBearLab’s open source Arduino Library for nRF51822.
Developing a Bluetooth Smart-enabled ‘appcessory’ (accessory device + companion application) is easier than ever. You can quickly produce prototypes and demos for Internet of Things (IoT) and other interesting projects. BLE Nano could operate under 1.8-3.3V, so it works with a lot of electronic components.
This is a great add-on to our BLE Nano & MK20 USB Board Set,which is required to use this board. The MK20 USB board is needed to load firmware into the BLE Nano from a PC.
