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.
Nordic Semiconductor have just announced their new mbed-enabled nRF51822-mKIT development kit:
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.
In less than three weeks, on the 18th of February, it will be the first "open source birthday" of the mbed SDK.
In preparation to the celebration, we will present mbed at FOSDEM 2014.

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!
