SPI Flash with Module


#1

If I have a custom PCB for a Bluz nrF51, is the expectation that it would boot correctly right away? Or would I need to flash anything with a JTAG programmer? The SPI Flash would be empty right off the assembly line, how does it get the factory firmware?


#2

You would need to program the board with an external programmer, like a JLink or STLinkv2.

We have instructions on this, if you can send me your Github username I can get you access.

Thanks, my github name is peternoyes.

I purchased the Bluz modules from the Bluz store. Would you expect that before following the instructions nothing would show on the LED?


#4

Yes, the modules from our store are not ready to be used and are expected to be programmed.

I added you to a GitHub repository that has instructions for programming. You can accept the invite and then access it here: https://github.com/bluzDK/bluz-beta/tree/master/programmer_release
