Bluetooth Support for Pyboard D-series

Post by msteurer » Sat Apr 13, 2019 11:11 am

Hi everyone,
I got one of the new D-series Boards (SF3W). As stated in the product description, Bluetooth is not yet support by the software. I didn't find a roadmap or something similar but can we already estimate when support for Bluetooth (or at least BLE) will be available?

There is already an open PR [1] to support Bluetooth but as far as I got it, this will only support ESP32 respectively Nordic platforms.

Cheers, Michael

It's in progress. Currently it's on the roadmap for version 2.0 and there are people working on it (but this is subject to change of course) -- https://github.com/micropython/micropython/issues/4821

By the way, are you looking for BLE or Classic Bluetooth support?

I'm just looking for BLE support. Actually, I just want to scan for BLE frames.

as I see it - BLE is more preferable for such devices like PyBoard
