This shield allows you to control an Arduino with your phone, using either an iOS or Android app.

The shield comes with a SMA connector for use with an external antenna. (Requires soldering)

New Features in BLE Shield Version 2.1:

  1. Reset button moved to the side, so you can use it while stacked with another shield.
  2. nRF8001 SPI pins can be set to either Pins 11-13 on the side or ICSP, this allows other Arduino compatible boards with no ICSP header such as FRDM-KL05 board, RedBoard and so on to interface with the nRF8001 BLE chip
  3. Flexible REQN and RDYN pins can be set to pin 2 or 10
  4. Shorter PCB, which lets it fit on a Arduino Yun.
