This is a development board for the nRF8001 single-chip Bluetooth low energy IC. The development board comes with level shifting capabilities so that you can use it with an Arduino, or other development platform. It allows you to tweak your code and wiring for your final project. There is a drop in module that you can include in your circuit located here.
You can use the nRFgo Studio to configure this little chip for any GATT profile. Examples include proximity tags, PUID watches, remote controls, and sports/fitness/healthcare sensors. The on-chip Link Layer and Host stack also include support for Peripheral GAP role, client, server, and security functions. For a full list of services adopted by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) you can checkout the bluetooth developers page
The nRF8001 is a highly integrated single-chip Bluetooth low energy Connectivity IC. It integrates a fully compliant Bluetooth v4.0 low energy Radio, Link Layer, and Host stack and features a simple serial interface that supports a wide range of external application microcontrollers. With peak currents as low as 12.5mA and average currents down to 9μA (for a 1s connection interval), the nRF8001 extends a single coin cell battery lifetime from months to years.
The nRF8001 is specifically designed for Bluetooth low energy applications that operate in the Peripheral (Slave) role. An Arduino SDK by Nordic is now available for download here
