Bareboard beacon for experimenters. It has a ceramic rather than PCB antenna for improved performance. 4 GPIOs that can be used for interfacing. Very small approx 19mm x 12mm x 2mm
This beacon uses the Nordic NRF51822 chip and can be re-programmed using Nordic tools and software. It comes with a ready-programmed hex that implements the iBeacon protocol and Services/Characteristics as per the user guide in our technical area (available to purchasers).
This beacon is for advanced users. It has no configuration app or SDK. You should use apps such as Lightblue on iOS and BLE Scanner or Nordic's nRF MCP on Android that allow you to read and modify Bluetooth Service Characteristic values directly. The manufacturer's user guide explains how to do this. Note that the GPIOs are only accessible if you reprogram your own firmware.
Comes with instructions how to access the technical information.
This beacon should not be used in production. For company experimental R&D purposes only because this item is not CE and RoHS approved.
