TapNLink Primer NFC-BLE

With TapNLink Primer, it takes just minutes for system designers to create their first IoT proofs-of-concept. This Primer connects microcontroller-based systems to mobile devices via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Near Field Communication * (NFC) interface. Using a mobile device as a gateway, the Primer also transfers data from the target MCU application to a provisioned and pre-configured IoT service platform on the Cloud.

The Primer connects to a target MCU using only 2 GPIO and either:

  • Serial protocol (S3P - Sofware Secure Serial Protocol) **
  • SWD (debug) protocol for ARM Cortex M-based microcontrollers

The Primer implements by configuration only. There is no coding or hardware to design. Just specify the variables in the target MCU application to access, set access rights and display parameters. The Primer's configuration software, IoTize Studio, automatically generates the HMI for your mobiles (Android or iOS) and prepares the Cloud environment to log data for the selected variables.

In just minutes, you can connect a mobile to your microcontroller application, read and write data from a custom mobile HMI app and view logged data on the Cloud.

*      TapNLink Primer implements the STMicroelectronics' ST25DV dynamic NFC tag.
