TapNLink Primer NFC-BLE

Ride7 wireless debugging tool

In addition, when connected to the SWD port of Cortex M-based MCUs, TapNLink is also supported by Ride7 as a wireless programmer/debugger.

For MCU programming and application debugging, PRIMER supports connection on the SWD port. No configuration or programming of the TapNLink is required.

Instant mobile HMI & Cloud connection

With TapNLink PRIMER, it takes just minutes to create IoT proofs-of-concept. PRIMER connects microcontroller (MCU)-based electronic systems to mobile devices (smartphone, tablets, PDAs, etc.) via a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Near Field Communication* (NFC) interface.

To interface with mobile apps, the PRIMER connects to a target MCU using only 2 GPIO and either

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

The Primer implements by configuration only. There is no coding or hardware to design. Just specify the variables in the target application to read or write, the PRIMER'S configuration software automatically generates the HMI for your mobiles (Android or iOS) and prepares the Cloud environment to log the data.

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