RedBearLab BLE Nano v2 - nRF52832

The BLE Nano v2 from RedBearLab is one of the smallest Bluetooth 4.2/5.0 Low Energy (BLE) development boards in the market. At each BLE Nano’s core is a Nordic nRF52832, an ARM Cortex-M4F SoC plus BLE capable of running at 64MHz with ultra low power consumption. The RedBearLab BLE Nano v2 also supports numerous different wireless devices running iOS 7/8, Android 4.3 or higher, and Windows Phone 8.1.

Developing a Bluetooth Smart enabled ‘appcessory’ (accessory device + companion application) is easier than ever. You can quickly produce prototypes and demos targeted for Internet of Things (IoT) and other interesting projects. The RedBearLab BLE Nano v2 can operate under 1.8V to 3.6V, making it able to work in conjunction with a wide variety of electronic components. It is important to keep in mind that you must have at least one DAPLink USB board, found in the BLE Nano Kit v2, which is used to load firmware onto RedBearLab BLE Nano v2 from a PC.

Note: The RedBearLab BLE Nano includes two 1x6 male headers that can be soldered on after purchase for easy interface.

  • 1x RedBearLab BLE Nano v2
  • 2x Header - 1x6 (Male, 0.1")
  • Smallest BLE development board, only 18.5mm x 21.0mm
  • Nordic nRF52832 ARM Cortex-M4F SoC (32-bit, @64MHz)
  • 2.4 GHz transceiver
  • Ultra low power consumption
  • Bluetooth BLE 4.2 Certified & 5.0 Ready
  • 64kb SRAM
  • 512kb Flash

RedBearLab BLE Nano v2 - nRF52832 Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Simple to use and powerful

Has a good size and is very easy to use. The OTA updater is a little complex to setup but with reading and testing is a good addition to an IOT project.
