Bluetooth Low Energy software expansion for STM32Cube

The X-CUBE-BLE1 expansion software package for STM32Cube runs on the STM32 and includes drivers for BlueNRG-MS Bluetooth low energy device.

The expansion is built on STM32Cube software technology to ease portability across different STM32 microcontrollers.

The software comes with sample implementations of the drivers running on the X-NUCLEO-IDB05A1, when connected to a NUCLEO-L053R8, NUCLEO-L476RG, NUCLEO-F401RE or NUCLEO-F411RE board.

Key Features

  • Complete middleware to build Bluetooth low energy applications using BlueNRG-MS device
  • Easy portability across different MCU families, thanks to STM32Cube
  • Numerous examples to aid understanding:
    • Support for Standard Profiles (Peripheral and Central)
    • Support for Apple Notification Center Service (ANCS)
  • Package compatible with STM32CubeMX, can be downloaded from and installed directly into STM32CubeMX
  • Free, user-friendly license terms
