Bluetooth Low Energy software expansion for STM32Cube

The X-CUBE-BLE1 is an expansion software package for STM32Cube. The software runs on the STM32 and includes drivers for ST’s BlueNRG / 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-IDB04A1 or 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 ST’s BlueNRG / 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)
  • Free, user-friendly license terms
