Interested in integrating Bluetooth Low Energy into your next Arduino project with even more flexibility than our nRF8001 offered? You’ll love the new nRF51822 based Bluefruit LE UART Friend, based on a powerful ARM Cortex M0 System on Chip!
We updated the Bluefruit LE UART Friend learning guide to show you how to use all of the demo sketches in our library, including Controller mode allowing you to push sensor data from your phone out to the Arduino, the Heart Rate Monitor demo showing you how to dynamically create and update your own GATT Services and Characteristics, as well as documenting all the AT commands available on the module.
Doing something interesting with the new Bluefruit LE UART Friend? Make sure to let us know or share it with the world on our weekly show and tell!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
