Topic: Use BLE in Central Mode on arduino 101 (Read 10109 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi, intel released an experimental central here

Experimental means that APIs will change in the next future since they are not very Arduino style.

Anyway if you want to give them a try remember to flash the new BLE firmware using the BLE flashpack in the release


Hi a_guadalupi,

The corelibs-arduino101 works well but I'm not able to update the firmware. I tried using the burn boatloader menu but that fails. Any suggestions?


Any updates on this.? I am not able to compile the code for arduino 101
Just an update to close this topic as solved.

I wrote a basic example code to show how 2x Arduino 101 can communicate with each other. One device acts as a peripheral with a button, and the other as a central with a LED. The button then controls the LED.


Hope you find it useful.


Hi BBato: Is there a limitation for the version of the Arduino 101 board? I have tried to load the example code.
Load is fine no issue but for the board load BLE_Button.ino  there is no reaction at all.

 BLEDevice peripheral = BLE.available();
  if ( peripheral ) 
never return a true. Looks like the board can not find the LED board via BLE.
