Re: UART BLE Module?

The nRF24L01+ is incompatible with any version of Bluetooth. Bluetooth uses frequency hopping and requires specially designed radios. (To the best of my knowledge - I'm no expert). My mistake, I did a quick googling of nRF24L01 and did not read close enough to enough to note that it's a simple 2.4 ...

I've posted code aimed at making a very simple point-to-point link with a pair of these https://github.com/peterhinch/micropython-radio.git . By only power...

UART BLE Module?

Has anyone tried using one of these Bluetooth LE modules with a PyBoard? https://www.adafruit.com/products/2479 It looks like it would be an excellent way to add some sort of wireless connectivity to a PyBoard, as it's a very small form factor and it connects using UART; and BLE uses such low power ...
