Topic: Bluetooth LE + DUE anyone have working setup? (Read 137 times) previous topic - next topic


Hello - I'm trying to find out if anyone has been successful using an Bluetooth LE shield with the DUE. I see the redbear labs product sold on makershed claims its compatible but there are not many details online. The few notes I did find are quite old and claim it can be made to work using a different version of library. Open to suggestions on other sheilds/breakout boards.



I've had some success with this nRF51822-based board from Seeed:


It only has four GPIO pins, though, but that's all I needed, and it's really small.

I used the MBED web 'IDE' to code/build, and this to program it:



Did you use it as a UART passthrough?

I'm ordered the adafruit bluefruit LE UART I can get them for >$17 and I can't find any reason it wouldn't work considering it interfaces via UART. I don't think my use of bluetooth requires anything that can't be done that way.



I used it for a Bluetooth MIDI interface, so very similar to a UART, just with a different service/profile and some special message handling.

Before deciding which one to get, it's worth being clear on how you're going to program it e.g. J-Link + software, MBED + suitable interface (like the Seeed one I mentioned), and whether you need to buy anything extra.


gutbag, Is it possible to programm this "Tiny BLE" with the Arduino IDE? I´m thinking about if it does take sense for me to buy it or not.. and how difficult would be to programm it by using the MBED IDE.
