Description: BLE Shield stands for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Shield. It is designed
to work with Arduino boards or compatibles, including Arduino Uno, Mega
2560, Leonardo and Due. It allows you to connect your Arduino boards
with other BLE Central device like a smartphone or tablet. So you can
develop some applications like:
BLE shield could operate under 3.3V or 5V, therefore it works with a lot of Arduino compatible boards too.
Control your Arduino pins with our/your own mobile App
Send sensor data from your Arduino to an App for processing
Use your mobile device as an internet gateway for your Arduino
and much more!
- New with BLE Shield Version 2.1
- Reset button is changed to "side button"
SPI pins can be set to either Pins 11-13 on the side or ICSP, this
allows other Arduino compatible boards with no ICSP header such as
FRDM-KL05 board, RedBoard and so on to interface with the nRF8001 BLE
Flexible REQN and RDYN pins selectable from pin 2 to 10
The board is shorter than before and this allows it to fit on Arduino Yun physically
- Features Since v2.0
- Besides the on-board PCB antenna, option to use SMA connector for external antenna (soldering is required)
- Flexible REQN and RDYN pins selectable from pin 2 to 12, these pins are fixed at 8 & 9 for BLE Shield v1
Reset button also resets the Arduino board, and vice versa
ICSP header provides Vcc (for other shields to get power source)
ICSP header now passes through (for other shields to connect to the SPI)
Shield's reset is controllable by Arduino pin 4 or 7
Reset signal to the shield is now active low (i.e. pull low to reset the shield)
Added test points for power consumption measurement of the nRF8001 chip (soldering is required)
Added circuitry and test pin (J9 NC) for measurement of instant working current (using logic analyzer, 1mA = 100mV).
Nordic nRF8001 Bluetooth Low Energy IC
Support Peripheral (Slave) role operation only – nRF8001 IC limitation.
Proprietary simple serial interface – Application Controller Interface (ACI).
