BLE Nano is the smallest Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy (BLE) development board in the market measuring only 18.5 x 21 mm. The core is Nordic nRF51822 (an ARM Cortex-M0 SoC plus BLE capability) running at 16MHz with ultra low power consumption.
Developing a Bluetooth Smart enabled 'appcessory' (accessory device + companion application) is easier than ever. You can quickly produce prototypes and demos target for Internet of Things (IoT) and other interesting projects. BLE Nano could operate under 1.8V to 3.3V, therefore it works with a lot of electronic components.
Current supported BLE central devices:
iOS 7 or 8
Android 4.3 or above (4.4 recommended for stability) with Bluetooth 4.0 hardware support
Windows Phone 8.1
Windows 8.1 with built-in Bluetooth 4.0 or USB dongle
Mac OSX 10.9.2 with built-in Bluetooth 4.0 or USB dongle
Linux with BlueZ 5.1 with built-in Bluetooth 4.0 or USB dongle
1.8V to 3.3V
Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy
