Redbear DAPLINK for genereic nrf51822 module


I understand that the Nano is now obsolete. Can the DAPLink be used to program a nrf51822 module such as the one in the link ?

Thank you


Hi mbeddev,

in any case you should have a look at the pinout of your module. According to this page, you have to connect your module with the DAPLink board by the pins SWDIO, SWCLK, RX, TX, CTS, RTS (and the power supply pins). I don’t think you can plug the DAPLink board on top of your module, so you have to use cables for the connection.

kind regards


I tried and there is no need to connect RX, TX, CTS, RTS. Only SWDIO and SWCLK. There is a problem with JLinkExe not uploading to the USB device so I have to upload the generated code manually. I’m using Mbed for Ubuntu 18.04.

Many thanks.
