How To USE Nordic Connect SDK (NCS) Flashing Built Code into nRF5340 Module

Edited by Jocelyn Tsai / Account Manager

You may find more information about hardware setup works from “How To Get started with Nordic nRF5340 Project by Raytac MDBT53/MDBT53V Development Kit Demo Board” (Click the link)

Intro:  With the ready built code of zephyr.hex file for net core and application core individually, we would like to proceed code flashing into the MDBT53/53V Nordic nRF5340 BLE module.

  • Ready Built Code Programming Steps

Step1. 

Execute nRF Connect >>  Programmer  > > Open

Step2.

Click “SELECT DEVICE” >> Find icon of “nRF5340 DK” which is detected by the programmer app

Step3.

Click icon of “nRF5340 DK” >> “Erase All” to remove the flash memory from MDBT53/53V BLE Module

Step4.

Click “Add File” to load the net core zephyr.hex and application core zephyr.hex both into programmer

Step5.

Do “Erase & Write ” to execute the flashing process for both zephyr.hex into memory of MDBT53/53V Module.

Step6.

To validate the wireless broadcast of default name “Nordic_UART_Service” from MDBT53/53V Module, please check on the “nRF Connect for mobile” APP and do “Scan device” through your mobile.   Once the device name is detected in your mobile , the wireless connection is successfully done.

Reliability Test Report-Nordic nRF52833 Module (MDBT50Q Series)

What is Reliability Test? Why it is important?

Reliability test is the measure which helps to predict future behavior during a period of usage of the product, component or material. In combination with the measurement of relevant parameters and the use of appropriate test methods, reliability test helps to ensure the function and qualify of the product or feature can perform as designated.

Nowadays, Bluetooth module has become the most important key part within whole IoT system, It is not only controlling the connection but also computing. Raytac understood how critical the module need to perform in the system no matter commercial or industrial applications. Therefore, Raytac conduct the reliability testing plans for all series modules in order to ensure all the module‘s duration can meet design request.

The Reliability test is following JASO D001-94, Clause 5.12, and testings are under below 3 environments.

  1. Low temperature maintain test under -40℃ and last for 72hr
  2. High temperature maintain test under 105℃ and last for 72hr
  3. Thermal shock testing under -40℃~105℃

Raytac’s modules have been recorded No data loss over Total 252,979,200 bytes communication during the test. The perfect result proof not only IC but also all components in the module are qualified to work for you!

The detail of the test report can be found and download from Raytac’s Website Support Page.

ANT+ Module by Raytac

nRF51422 is the first solution supports both Bluetooth and ANT+, different from pure Bluetooth Low Energy BLE solution, nRF51822 released earlier. The edge cutting technology enable nRF51422 suporting multiprotocol concurrency capable for both Bluetooth Low Energy and ANT+. At the same time Nordic released SDK S310 for nRF51422 which is a combined peripheral BLE and ANT+ protocol stack that supports concurrent operation and all ANT+ features.

When Nordic moved to nRF52, started from nRF52832, the game changed. Even nF52832 still supports ANT+, the technology support such as SDK releasing or developers’ forums, has moved to direct supported by ANT+ Wireless (formerly Dynastream Innovations). Since then, Raytac suggest developers who is interested in ANT+ product still able to select the modules based on core specification and form factor, but access the firmware development support from ANT+ directly. Developers who are interested to know more about ANT+ is encouraged visit ANT+ FAQ support page first for more information about membership, development, resource and certification.

All Nordic nRF52 solutions supports ANT+ feature, developers may refer to below Raytac module map and find what the protocol supports by the symbol stated besides the Nordic solution indication.
