Hi there~ You can refer to the link below: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_nRF52_Arduino RegardsAnswer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:30:32
Several questions: When I receive the module, is there already a bootloader flashed? If there is a bootloader flashed, is it the Adafruit bootloader or the Nordic bootloader? Is there already a soft-device flashed? What other way to flash the virgin device? I don't want to buy the Segger Jlink. Thank you.Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:24:20
Hi there, Our module is only pre-programmed with Raytac’s testing code which is used at the factory for functionality testing. Bootloader is not included. You can follow reference circuit in our spec sheet to connect the module and will see BLE advertisement “MDBT42Q” on BLE search when connections are successful. To program the module, you can either use Segger J-link or any nRF5X DK you have. Both are officially recommended by Nordic. thanks.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:24:20

The nRF52832 module supports ANT protocol through loading S212 ANT SoftDevice or S332 Concurrent ANT/Bluetooth? Low Energy (BLE) SoftDevice. Can these softdevices be loaded onto this module so that it supports ANT?Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:23:25
nRF52832 supports ANT protocol, but the ANT SDK relating info should be downloaded from Dynastream website as below link: https://www.thisisant.com/developer/components/nrf52832/ ANT SDK is not available for free downloading and development any more from Nordic website starts from product line SoC nRF52832. Customer will be charged the ANT protocol Authorization fee after development by Dynastream. We have external Antenna applicable module with nRF52840, P/N: MDBT50Q-U1M, **https://www.seeedstudio.com/MDBT50Q-U1M-nRF52840-Based-BLE-Module-p-3149.html** thanks.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:23:25

You can use the firmware from Adafruit for it (Bluefruit52): https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_nRF52_Arduino They base it on this firmware: https://github.com/sandeepmistry/arduino-nRF5 I use a JLink segger to program the module and after that I can reprogram it using the UART, I like the Adafruit solution since they let you program it right from the Arduino IDE and that makes life very easy. I can reprogram the name that one sees in scanning for devices though, but one can set the 'local name' and even things like peripheral information from within your Arduino sketch.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:23:24
