Nordic "Thingy" kit

Posted on
  • Any support planned for the Nordic Thingy dev kit?­Nordic-Thingy-52

    It runs on nRF52832.

  • Looks like a neat little device!

    To be honest the standard nRF52832DK build might well work on it as-is - on other devices Nordic have tended to use the same pins for the UART, so if they've done the same on here you'd be sorted.

  • Mmm.. it's like a Puck, but huge and ugly.

    They've posted some Node.js code to operate with the default firmware:­ordic-Thingy52-Nodejs/blob/master/lib/th­ingy.js

    It might be good to try to match the same services and characteristics they're using for their sensor, to get a Puck acting like a Thingy:52 as far as their official App is concerned.

  • That's a good idea - and then you'd get their IFTTT bridge thing I guess?

  • That would be a nice to have indeed! I will keep this idea in mind for later.

    @Gordon I know that unofficial boards may not benefit from any support, but I ask the question anyway (it might also be helpful for Puck.js users): Is there a way of flashing the .hexover OTA or do we absolutely need to give it a .zip archive? nightly builds for the NRP52 kit seems to be .hexonly...

  • I just copy the hex onto the JLINK USB drive.

    On the nRF52DK builds there is no bootloader, so it won't do OTA at all (even with a zip). It's a complete pain to get working and requires an encryption key and two separate builds (one bootloader, one firmware), so for a devboard I just skip it :)
