General Purpose

The following general purpose commands are available on all Bluefruit LE modules:

AT+FACTORYRESET

Clears any user config data from non-volatile memory and performs a factory reset before resetting the Bluefruit module.

Codebase Revision: 0.3.0

Parameters: None

Output: None

AT+FACTORYRESET
OK
As of version 0.5.0+ of the firmware, you can perform a factory reset by holding the DFU button down for 10s until the blue CONNECTED LED lights up, and then releasing the button.

AT+DFU

Forces the module into DFU mode, allowing over the air firmware updates using a dedicated DFU app on iOS or Android.

Codebase Revision: 0.3.0

Parameters: None

Output: None

The AT parser will no longer responsd after the AT+DFU command is entered, since normal program execution effectively halts and a full system reset is performed to start the bootloader code
AT+DFU
OK

AT+HELP

Displays a comma-separated list of all AT parser commands available on the system.

Codebase Version: 0.3.0

Parameters: None

Output: A comma-separated list of all AT parser commands available on the system.

OK

AT+NVMWRITE

Writes data to the 256 byte user non-volatile memory (NVM) region.

Codebase Version: 0.7.0

Parameters:

  • offset: The numeric offset for the first byte from the starting position in the user NVM
  • datatype: Which can be one of STRING (1), BYTEARRAY (2) or INTEGER (3)
  • data: The data to write to NVM memory (the exact payload format will change based on the specified datatype).

Output: Nothing

# Write 32768 as an integer starting at byte 16 in user NVM
AT+NVMWRITE=16,INTEGER,32768
OK

AT+NVMREAD

Reads data from the 256 byte user non-volatile memory (NVM) region.

Codebase Version: 0.7.0

Parameters:

  • offset: The numeric offset for the first byte from the starting position in the user NVM
  • size: The number of bytes to read
  • datatype: The type used for the data being read, which is required to properly parse the data and display it as a response.  The value can be one of STRING (1), BYTEARRAY (2) or INTEGER (3)

Output: The data read back, formatted based on the datatype argument.

# Read an integer back from position 16 in user NVM
AT+NVMREAD=16, 4, INTEGER
32768
OK

AT+MODESWITCHEN

Enables or disables mode switches via the '+++' command on the BLE peripheral of BLE UART side of the connection.

Codebase Version: 0.7.1

Parameters:

  • location: This can be a string, either 'local' or 'ble' indicating which side should have the '+++' command enabled or disabled, 'local' being the Bluefruit peripheral and 'ble' being the phone or tablet.
  • state: '0' to disable '+++' mode switches, '1' to enable them.

Output: None

By default, '+++' is enabled locally, and disabled in BLE
# Disable reomte '+++' mode switches
AT+MODESWITCHEN=ble,0
OK
