Zephyr can use the nrf52_vbluno52 board configuration to run on the VBLUno52 board, a VNG Bluetooth Low Energy UNO using an nRF52832 ARM Cortex-M4F processor. It provides support for the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52832 ARM Cortex-M4F CPU and the following devices:
- RADIO (Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0)
The VBLUno52 board has two external oscillators. The frequency of the slow clock is 32.768 kHz. The frequency of the main clock is 64 MHz.
The nrf52_vbluno52 board configuration supports the following hardware features:
|NVIC||on-chip||nested vectored interrupt controller|
Other hardware features are not supported by the Zephyr kernel.
Programming and Debugging¶
The VBLUno52 board has an on-board DAPLink (CMSIS-DAP) interface for flashing and debugging. You do not need any other programming device. You only need to install the pyOCD tool (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyOCD)
See the Getting Started Guide for general information on setting up your development environment.
You can build and flash applications in the usual way. Here is an example for the Hello World application.
# From the root of the zephyr repository west build -b nrf52_vbluno52 samples/hello_world west flash
Using CMake and ninja:
# From the root of the zephyr repository # Use cmake to configure a Ninja-based buildsystem: cmake -B build -GNinja -DBOARD=nrf52_vbluno52 samples/hello_world # Now run ninja on the generated build system: ninja -C build ninja -C build flash
