Nordic Semiconductor launches Demo App for Bluetooth low energy/Smart and ANT+ accessories for iPhone 4S

January 10, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Ultra low power RF specialist Nordic Semiconductor ASA has unveiled the nRFready iOS Demo App sample application for the iPhone 4S that can be used to fast-track Bluetooth low energy (or Bluetooth Smart as Bluetooth low energy devices and sensors will now be marketed to consumers) and ANT+ wireless app and accessory development.

The application provides developers with an ideal starting point and ready-built design framework to accelerate development of Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ enabled apps and accessories for the iPhone 4S - and if using Nordic's market-leading nRF8000 Series Bluetooth low energy and nRF24AP2 Series ANT solutions - will also provide a complete end-to-end, class-leading product development solution.

The nRFready iOS Demo App is a fully functional application that will work with a wide range of the most popular ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart accessories such as wireless heart rate straps, foot pods, bike speed-distance, cadence, and power sensors, temperature, proximity tags, weight scales, and blood pressure monitors.

Developers using Nordic's nRF8000 or nRF24AP2 Series ICs get complete source code and documentation for the application, enabling them to accelerate development by building on top of a ready-built design framework that includes being able to reuse working and proven code for the ultra low power wireless connectivity.


The nRFready iOS Demo App is available for nRF8000 and nRF24AP2 Series IC customers from the Nordic website:
