I sensed that BLE functionality was still a ways off, so I started a search for something else and came across the SparkFun Pro nRF52840 Mini - Bluetooth Development Board
) I just received one today, so I haven't spun it up, but can't help but notice how similar it looks to the Artemis Nano which I'm working with. If you could guess, how far away are you from getting a similar level of functionality to something like this:
https://github.com/sparkfun/nRF52840_Br ... Button.ino
Again, I am not well versed on the finer points of all this (github, SDK's, make files, etc.) so maybe that's the wrong question, but that's where my head is at.
When you say that there no standardized serial connection profile, that confuses me (likely because I know so little about it!) I was the one who menitoned the BlueSmiRF, but maybe I underestimated the similarities between something like it and the Artemis. Can you shed some light on that?
Maybe the best way forward is for me to explain my application and you tell me how feasible it is right now and into the future:
I am building a product that will interface with hundreds of users/day with each interaction lasting a couple minutes. The user would approach it, connect to it with an app on their phone from a short distance away, the user's unique identifier would be transmitted from the phone to the Artemis via an app and the device would "armed." The Artemis would then deal with various other inputs, and then provide a result to the phone over BLE.
I can't help but think this is realistic for the Artemis. The question is when will the "programmability" approach that of something like the SparkFun Pro nRF52840 Mini?
