BlueFruit Module

by sunnyrose1994 on Tue Jan 22, 2019 3:25 am

Does anyone know if the BlueFruit module (1697) can work with a Trinket? Trinket Pro? Or does it need an UNO at the minimum?

Thanks!

The Pro Trinket uses the same microcontroller as the Uno, it's just smaller and doesn't have a built-in USB-to-Serial converter. It will work with the nRF8001.

I think it's possible to make a Trinket talk to the nRF8001, but you can't do much else. The connections will use almost all of the GPIO pins, and the code will use most of the program storage and RAM.

We only carry the nRF8001 as a legacy product. It predates Bluetooth 4, so it lacks a lot of features now associated with BLE.
