NRF51-DK Analog Data, Linux, Python, Sensor
Dear Forum, 10 months ago I've posted a question regarding a similar topic and got no answers because it might have been to broad. Now coming back to my original problem I'll try it again.
I simply would like to tell my NRF51-DK to transmit ADC readings from one single ADC as quickly as possible and ultimately access this data with Python, MATLAB, Octave, C++, LabView or whatever running on a Linux host PC, using a Bluetooth BLE dongle.
Somehow this seems to be very 'uncommon' - at least my Arduino-Tinker-DIY vocabulary (which I use for online searches) doesn't allow me to get the information I need ... so here I am again.
It would be just so great if someone could guide me towards the right steps ... Best & Yours, Glycyl

It is simple : cut your problem in several parts:
- read adc to variables
- format and print theses variables on a terminal (with a serial connexion to your host pc)
- replace the physical connexion with a Bluetooth
- replace the terminal on the pc with a file
- read the file in whatever program
For each step is easy to find the documentation , for the Bluetooth it may be depending on your device.
