Bluetooth: Peripheral DIS Example

The Peripheral DIS Example demonstrates how to use the Bluetooth Low Energy DIS (Device Information) GATT Service.

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/peripheral_dis.

Build the example by performing the following steps:

  1. Open terminal and navigate to the m2devkit directory created in the Setup the toolchain section:

    cd <sourcecode_root>/m2devkit
  2. Use west to build the example:

    west build -b nrf52840_m2 nrf52840-m2-devkit/examples/zephyr/bluetooth/peripheral_dis


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 zephyr.hex.

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:

west flash


Test the Peripheral DIS Example application by performing the following steps:

  1. Connect the debugger USB port to your PC

  2. Run a terminal application like PuTTY or screen:

    screen /dev/cu.usbmodem14102 115200
  3. Press RESET button, and observe the output of the terminal:

    *** Booting Zephyr OS build zephyr-v2.3.0-1-ge77985a2f053  ***
    Bluetooth initialized
    Advertising successfully started
  4. Start the nRF Connect for Mobile app, scan the device and connect to the device(the device is advertising as DIS peripheral)
