Algocraft WriteNow! programmer expands the device list by adding the NINA-B1 series modules produced by u-blox (www.u-blox.com).

The NINA-B1 series modules are small, stand-alone Bluetooth low energy modules featuring Bluetooth 5, a powerful Arm® Cortex®-M4 with FPU - including 512KB of Flash memory and 64 KB of RAM.

The NINA-B1 series modules provide an SWD interface for flashing and debugging. The SWD interface consists of two pins: SWDCLK and SWDIO.

Algocraft provides support of u-blox NINA-B1 series through all of its WriteNow! Series, single and parallel In-System Programmers. Our four WN programmers are: WN-PRG01A (programs 1 device by one), WN-PRG02A (programs 2 devices in parallel), WN-PRG04A (programs 4 devices in parallel), and WN-PRG08A (programs 8 devices in parallel).

In addition, we provide external Demultiplexer modules as accessories for the multiple-sites WriteNow! models, able to extend the programming channels up to 32 in a sequential way (8+8+8+8).

Thanks to the optimized WriteNow! architecture, the complete programming cycle included the chip

erase, blank check, program and verify with readout method of the whole memory typical for the NINA-B111 moduel (512KB Flash) is about 22 seconds.

WriteNow! Technology allows to program up to 8 devices at once, drastically reducing programming times, costs, and system complexity. In addition, WriteNow! Technology’s performances allow to achieve the theoretical programming speed for any given device, thus shortening as much as possible the programming phase of the production process.
