Adafruit has today announced a new piece of hardware which will be soon be available to purchase directly from their online store, in the form of the Adafruit Feather nRF52 Pro with myNewt Bootloader, nRF52832.
The latest Bluetooth low energy developer on board has been created for advance projects and those who would like to use a fully open source Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 stack.
This is a special Feather – unlike the rest of the Feather family, this board is not for use with Arduino IDE. Instead, it is for use with Mynewt only! We have programmed it with the Mynewt bootloader and updated the hardware to add an SWD connector and an additional DFU button. It has a native-bluetooth chip, the nRF52832, as well as built in USB Serial and battery charging!
If you want to use the nRF52 with Arduino IDE please check out the Bluefruit nRF52 Feather which works out-of-the-box with our Arduino board support package. This Feather is for advanced users only, you will be interacting with the Mynewt RTOS rather than Arduino and you cannot easily go back-and-forth without an SWD programmer.
