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_dk] platform = nordicnrf51 board = nrf51_dk
You can override default Nordic nRF51X22 Development Kit(PCA1000X) settings per build environment using
board_*** option, where
*** is a JSON object path from
board manifest nrf51_dk.json. For example,
[env:nrf51_dk] platform = nordicnrf51 board = nrf51_dk ; change microcontroller board_build.mcu = nrf51822 ; change MCU frequency board_build.f_cpu = 32000000L
Nordic nRF51X22 Development Kit(PCA1000X) supports the next uploading protocols:
Default protocol is
You can change upload protocol using upload_protocol option:
[env:nrf51_dk] platform = nordicnrf51 board = nrf51_dk upload_protocol = jlink
PIO Unified Debugger - “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 nRF51X22 Development Kit(PCA1000X) has on-board debug probe and IS READY for debugging. You don’t need to use/buy external debug probe.

|Arduino||Arduino Wiring-based Framework allows writing cross-platform software to control devices attached to a wide range of Arduino boards to create all kinds of creative coding, interactive objects, spaces or physical experiences.|
|Mbed||The mbed framework The mbed SDK has been designed to provide enough hardware abstraction to be intuitive and concise, yet powerful enough to build complex projects. It is built on the low-level ARM CMSIS APIs, allowing you to code down to the metal if needed. In addition to RTOS, USB and Networking libraries, a cookbook of hundreds of reusable peripheral and module libraries have been built on top of the SDK by the mbed Developer Community.|
|Zephyr||The Zephyr Project is a scalable real-time operating system (RTOS) supporting multiple hardware architectures, optimized for resource constrained devices, and built with safety and security in mind.|
