Arduino micro + BLE = radino_nRF8001

The In-Circuit radino nRF8001 combines an Arduino Micro with Bluetooth-Low-Energy(BLE)
in a small form-factor EMC-compliant enclosure. It is part of our family of pin-to-pin compatible radino Modules.

It's part of the radino-series, which provides full-Arduino-compatible wireless communication devices
in a small form factor, all pin-compatible to each other.


  • Arduino-compatible (Arduino Micro / Leonardo)
  • Bluetooth low energy SDK for Arduino by Nordic Semicond.
  • Bluetooth v4.0 compliant Protocol Stack (BLE)
  • 15 GPIOS (5 PWM, 5 Analog IN)
  • USB (HID Keyboard & Mouse, virtual UART)
  • High-Performance, Low-Power Microcontroller
  • GATT, GAP, L2CAP, SMP Bluetooth low energy Profile
  • Selectable output power: 0dBm, -6dBm, -12dBm or -18dBm
  • Reciever sensitivity (ideal transmitter): -87dBm

Working with Arduino IDE

The core of radino is an Arduino Micro, so the programming is as easy as programming an Arduino Micro.
For the Arduino IDE Boards Manager follow URL is required:


Visit radino/radino32 software for more information about the Arduino IDE and installation.

For detailed information about our library for the Arduino IDE look at the radino Library documentation.

Common problems regarding radino modules and the Arduino system: Common problems

The radino nRF8001 has no Arduino library for including. For an own sketch you should copy the radino_nRF8001_UART_LED folder into the sketchbook folder as a new project.

If you don´t want to use the Ardunio IDE, you can flash an existing .hex file with avrdude. For more informations see: Upload binary on radino
