Bluetooth: Beacon Example¶
The Bluetooth Beacon Example demonstrates the BLE Broadcaster role functionality by advertising an Eddystone URL.
Before you start building, the Zephyr development environment should be set up correctly:
Build the example¶
You can find the source code and the project file of the example in the following folder: examples/zephyr/bluetooth/beacon.
Build the example by performing the following steps:
Open terminal and navigate to the
m2devkitdirectory created in the Setup the toolchain section:
westto build the example:
west build -b nrf52840_m2 nrf52840-m2-devkit/examples/zephyr/bluetooth/beacon
If a build system is present, make the build folder pristine before building:
west build -t pristine
Flash the example¶
After compiled successfully, the firmware is located in
m2devkit/build/zephyr with the name
Connect the debugger USB port to your PC using the provided USB-C Cable. A disk drive called M2-DOCK will be automatically detected by the computer.
Run the following command to flash the board:
Test the Bluetooth Beacon Example application by performing the following steps:
Connect the debugger USB port to your PC
