nrf52832 and mbed

Dear all,

I tried, using a blink example with target the nRF51822 DK platform, to make it running on the nRF52832 Preview DK.

Nothing happens :(

I tried to upload it draggin and dropping and also using NrFGO.

Is there any parameter to change?

Someone tried something similar?


no news on this?

There are issues with the drag n drop method not erasing chip properly. Use nRFgo Studio, erase chip first, then flash new application. Make sure that target options (drop down list top right)in embed environment is set to default. This will create hex file with softdevice (if required) + application. In nRFgo Studio, use Erase all, then use "Program Application" option to write hex file to chip.

Also check which chip peripherals you are using, as the chip used in the Preview DK has a lot of features missing, such as PWM etc. Check the Nordic errata for the matching device on the nordic infocenter website. https://infocenter.nordicsemi.com/index.jsp Also note that the current mbed library, for the nRF51, won't make use of the the enhanced peripherals of the nRF52.

Although need confirmation from mbed crew, I think the nRF52832 DK may require independent mbed platform In this time, you can use nRF SDK from Nordic Website https://developer.nordicsemi.com/
