Build Status License

nRF Connect for Desktop is a cross-platform framework for desktop apps for development kits or dongles from Nordic Semiconductor. The framework provides a launcher and the general layout for selecting devices, navigation menus, logging, etc. Apps can decorate the standard components and use built-in libraries in order to create end-user tools.

Supported Platforms

While it may vary in individual apps, nRF Connect for Desktop aims to support all official Nordic Semiconductor development kits and dongles from these series:

  • nRF51
  • nRF52
  • nRF91

You can run nRF Connect for Desktop on:

  • Windows
  • Ubuntu Linux 64-bit

Without it when running the apps you would otherwise get error messages when running the apps like CouldNotFindJprogDLL, CouldNotOpenDLL or JLINKARM_DLL_NOT_FOUND.

Linux only
