hackaBLE is a tiny (~ 18 mm x 28 mm) Open Source Nordic nRF52832 based BLE development board you can embed in your BLE projects. It's designed such that you can use it three ways:
hackaBLE uses offers more value than just using the BLE module directly - since it incorporates the necessary passive compoments - including the ones for the buck converter for power saving - and adds an RGB LED and a button for convenience. It's also much easier to solder than the bare modules.
The PCB footprint and Pinout for hackaBLE can be see in the photos above.
(The kicad footprint for hackaBLE is readily available in the git repository.)
hackaBLE uses the Nordic nRF52832 which in turn is based on an ARM Cortex-M4 core. So you can really program it with any ARM compatible programmer. We do have a convenient solution though, in the form of our Bumpy blackmagic probe compatible SWD debugger and our PogoProg.
Use the four SWD pins of PogoProg on hackaBLE to upload or debug hackaBLE.
Please read the bumpy documentation on using Bumpy to program hackaBLE.
For more details on nRF5 2programming, please read our guide on getting started with Nordic nRF5 SDK.

I am a software engineer and Embedded Systems consultant based in Bangalore, India. I have a Bachelor of Technology from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and an MS from Pennsylvania State University, USA. I worked in the software industry in the San Francisco Bay Area for about 6 years before returning to India in 2004.
I have been a tinkerer since I was a teenager building electronic circuits, and continued this trend with programming in college. Around 2012, I started electronut.in – a blog on electronics, microcontrollers, and programming. The blog lead to the formation of Electronut Labs, and our first successfully crowdfunded product snapVCC (a power supply for Makers). The blog also let to my first book Python Playground (No Starch Press) which has sold close to 10,000 copies and has been translated to three languages.
Electronut Labs is now a small business in Bangalore and we are focused on creating innovative electronics hardware.
