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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
