This guide will take you through the process of building/compiling CircuitPython for the nRF52840 bluetooth LE chipset. Note that CircuitPython for nRF52840 isn't even alpha, its pre-alpha! So this is for bleeding-edge development and experimentation!

Expect things to change, break, and not work as planned.

This guide is not for beginners - Experts only! We make many assumptions about software and skills in this guide!

Required Hardware

This guide will work for the following boards:

  • nRF52840-DK - don't use the PDK, it has a pre-release silicon that will not work!

More coming soon!
