Nordic nRF52 Module by Raytac (Base Line Series)

Bluetooth applications not always tough and complicated.

Most cases, Bluetooth applications are brief and require simple bridge functionality only such as UART service for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or SPP for Classic Bluetooth (BT3 or BT2). Raytac adopted Nordic nRF52 base line solutions (nRF52805 / nRF52810 / nRF52811 / nRF52820) offer a series of base line modules with different form factor and antenna options for selection.

nRF52805: GPIO: 10 Flash: 192K / RAM: 24K

nRF52810: GPIO: 32 Flash: 192K / RAM: 24K

nRF52811: GPIO: 32 Flash: 192K / RAM: 24K

nRF52820:GPIO: 18 Flash: 256K / RAM: 32K

Excepting modules,  Raytac even developed a firmware pre-loaded modules for base line solution which is called as AT command module series. AT command module collected a list of most common command that transparent transmission may need. A well developed firmware pre-loaded modules bring developers or customer a quick access to Bluetooth. Simply deploy the module onto applications and projects can be benefited with the maximum flexibility, design free, time saving advantage.

Firmware Coding & DFU onto MDBT50Q-RX

Hi there, 

Here introduce the firmware perspective about how to program your code onto MDBT50Q-RX dongle.

Believed all readers have done the hardware setting and now has well prepared to load the code onto the dongle. (If not yet done the hardware setting, pls find it here)

In this blog, we will introduce the procedure based on below 2 scenarios
  • First time to load the code
  • DFU Firmware update by USB or OTA (through Bluetooth over the air)

First time to load the code:

1. Generate Public Key

For security reason, Public Key is the first step to proceed (DOS Environment MUST)
   Command to produce Public Key is in below:

      nrfutil keys generate public_key.pem
nrfutil keys display --key pk --format code public_key.pem --out_file public_key.c

2. Edit Bootloader (Use Keil C as the example)
    2.1 Open a project

\nRF5_SDK_15.3.0_59ac345\examples\dfu\secure_bootloader\pca10056_ble

    2.2 Paste the Public Key produced from step 1 in the red square.

    2.3 Set up Button behavior to trigger the Bootloader function start
    2.3.1 Activate to enter the Bootloader function by using button pressed. (Developers may change to others if don't like this way. Just enter "secure_bootloader" project and modify "sdk_config.h")


    2.3.2 Modify button pin no. (Developers can modify "sdk_config.h" in "secure_bootloader" project)


    2.3.3 Modify LED pin no. (Developers can modify "pca10056.h" in "secure_bootloader" project)


3. Edit Application
   Open and edit the project

\nRF5_SDK_15.3.0_59ac345\examples\peripheral\usbd_ble_uart\pca10056\s140\arm5_no_packs

4. Generate bootloader_settings.hex file

nrfutil.exe settings generate --family NRF52840 --application USBD_TO_UART.hex --application-version 3 --bootloader-version 2 --bl-settings-version 1 bootloader_settings.hex

5. Merge files
1Bootloader.hex
2bootloader_settings.hex
3s140_nrf52_6.1.1_softdevice.hex
4USBD_TO_UART.hex
mergehex.exe -m Bootloader.hex bootloader_settings.hex -o Combind0.hex
mergehex.exe -m Combind0.hex s140_nrf52_6.1.1_softdevice.hex -o Combind1.hex
mergehex.exe -m Combind1.hex USBD_TO_UART.hex x -o USBD_TO_UART_BT_SD_APP.hex



6. Use nRFconnect to burn the merged code onto dongle (nRF52840 IC)
Launch the programmer

Load the merged .hex file
Program the .hex file



Right here, the code should be loaded onto dongle successfully.
Hope all you guys enjoy the journey and completed the setup.

In case you are not happy about the code you just loaded?
No worry, we now introduce DFU process in below to retrieve your happiness.
