Bluetooth LE Example on mbed - Health Thermometer!

Now the mbed Bluetooth APIs are almost complete and the mbed-enabled Nordic nRF51822 single-chip Bluetooth LE hardware is available for pre-order, here is a peek at how we can use the mbed BLE APIs to easily implement a Bluetooth LE Health Thermometer.

Before we get in to the details, this video shows the Bluetooth LE Health Thermometer program in action:

Freescale's FRDM mbed enabled platform family just keeps growing! Welcome to the Family, FRDM-KL05Z!

More mbed support is added to the Freedom microcontroller platform line! This time it's the FRDM-KL05Z. This is ultra-low-cost development platform is enabled by the Kinetis L Series KL0x MCU family built on the ARM® Cortex™-M0+ processor. This new platform provides easier migration for 8-bit developers moving into the Kinetis portfolio.

Hands-on: ST Nucleo board with a shield

The mbed platform support has been expanded recently to include a new family of boards - the ST Nucleo. Four boards are supported at the time of this writing and ST's plans are to release a full line of STM32 Microcontrollers in the Nucleo family, all of which will have out-of-the-box support for the mbed ecosystem. In this blog post I'll show you how easy it is to use the a ST Nucleo board on mbed.

BLE Development Update

A little while back you may have noticed we started working on a Bluetooth Low Energy API for mbed, and a partnership with Nordic Semiconductor to make it available on a microcontroller with the Bluetooth LE radio built in. It has been developing really well, so we thought we'd share some of the progress with you!
