Platform Nordic nRF51: The Nordic nRF51 Series is a family of highly flexible, multi-protocol, system-on-chip (SoC) devices for ultra-low power wireless applications. nRF51 Series devices support a range of protocol stacks including Bluetooth Smart (previously called Bluetooth low energy), ANT and proprietary 2.4GHz protocols such as Gazell.
[env:nrf51_dongle] platform = nordicnrf51 board = nrf51_dongle
You can override default Nordic nRF51 Dongle (PCA10031) settings per build environment using
board_*** option, where
*** is a JSON object path from
board manifest nrf51_dongle.json. For example,
[env:nrf51_dongle] platform = nordicnrf51 board = nrf51_dongle ; change microcontroller board_build.mcu = nrf51822 ; change MCU frequency board_build.f_cpu = 32000000L
Nordic nRF51 Dongle (PCA10031) supports the next uploading protocols:
Default protocol is
You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:
[env:nrf51_dongle] platform = nordicnrf51 board = nrf51_dongle upload_protocol = jlink
Debugging - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.
You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.
Nordic nRF51 Dongle (PCA10031) has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.
