Over-the-Air Device Firmware Update for nRF52 #InternetOfThings #IoT #BLE @nordictweets
nRF52 processors with Bluetooth are becoming very popular in products due to their power and communications capabilities, ideal for Internet of Things (IoT or smart) devices. Mohammad Afaneh on NovelBits posts about updating the internal firmware on these devices via Bluetooth. This could provide additional features, fixes, and security patches.
The post goes into device firmware update and bootloader characteristics for the nRF52 chips and the nRF update Bluetooth Low Energy service.
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.
