The RPBee nRF52 module is a great nRF52 implementation that is XBee footprint and pin compatible! Using e.g. an XBee Explorer you can easily reprogram the module from the Arduino IDE.
We were looking to get our Bluetooth modules to the next level and ready for Bluetooth 5.0. The other module was not fast enough and also used some deviant scripting language plus a special programmer. One of our partners needed a better bluetooth device for their medical simulation systems and after evaluating a number of other bluetooth solutions we though this one would be the best!
You can use it as a drop-in replacement for other XBee compatible footprints. There is also a 10-pin debug pin available (it does not come with pins soldered on, but we can if you really want that). And a header for the NRF52 NFC tag mode option.
As you can see we have five different color options: - Red - Blue - Yellow - White - Black Please mention what color(s) you like otherwise we will ship a random color.
For now we will use the Adafruit Libraries, we are working on adapted libraries, but will try to keep them as much compatible as possible.
Needed: An XBee explorer or some XBee <-> USB UART alternative.
In the Video you can see how I programmed mine. I use BLExplr and an iPhone to see the module as an iBeacon, there are also UART examples, etc. Will work with any BLE (Bluetooth 4+) compatible client device.
Feel free to contact us about the product itself or questions on hard- or software for using the modules.
Note: modules are produced in batches so if we run out we will make more.
We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
JKSOFT Educational is a small business that makes innovative educational products, mostly for it's partners but now and then we have very nice products that we want to share directly with the rest of the world.
We have been around since 1997. While we first started with software development, we entered the embedded systems world around 10 years ago. Speciality: devices that are compatible with Arduino (including custom SAMD21-based modules) and Raspberry Pi applications. We produce everything in house (apart from the PCB's that we outsource to Seeedstudio).
Enjoy and feel free to ask us anything you like.
