Coming Soon: Artemis BLE

We have an update on BLE support for Artemis!

It's already been a busy year for us but with each passing day, Artemis becomes more and more whole as a mainstay module. So what have we been working on? Well, we are currently tackling getting Bluetooth fully up and running on our little open-source module.

BLE is still our highest priority feature to add. As we have said since the release of Artemis, we are planning to support BLE by relying on ARM's Mbed OS. There has already been a significant amount of effort involved in simply understanding and setting up the required environment for Mbed to run properly. Fortunately, we've been able to reliably start the Mbed kernel, and are now focusing on porting HAL modules!

The HAL modules include features like GPIO, Serial and other MCU-specific peripherals. Some of these are required in order to be able to move forward with our BLE goal. So far we have the basics of GPIO and Serial working, and starting this week we are determining which we should tackle next to get us to BLE as quickly as possible.

If you would like to follow along with where we are out, be sure to check out our GitHub Repo for more information!

TL;DR - Bluetooth on Artemis is coming, and it will be here soon!

BLE on Nano? Soon!



You can check out all these features in our newsletter. Feel free to poke at the code as well! We've included examples for all the features of the Artemis in our Arduino Core.

  • Hello - is there any update or actual ETA for BLE on Artemis? Also do you expect the BLE API to be exposed to the arduino SDK as well or only for Ambiq? Thank you

  • HID! I want HID!!

  • You know, it would have been really nice if Sparkfun would wait on the whole machine learning contest thing until they actually support BLE on the Artemis. A lot of my project ideas would be a lot better with a mobile app interface!

  • Okay, I think it's great that SparkFun has put all this work into developing the Artemis product.

    However, every time there is a blog on it, I suddenly get Lindsey Stirling's music from her Artemis album running through my head. Would someone just buy Nate that CD, so he has it too to listen to while he works?!
