Hello All,

I have an nRF51 USB Dongle with the S210 Softdevice loaded; however ANTWARE II won't see it. I did some research on the Nordic developer forums, and it lead me to believe that ANTWARE II does not support the nRF51 dongle. However, on the dongle product page on Nordic's website, ANTWARE II is included under downloads which led me to believe that it would be supported. Can anyone shed some light?

Thanks!

Hi AEO,

You are correct, the ANT Windows Library which ANTware II is built on does not natively support the nRF51 USB dongle. It would have to be modified to support whichever method by which the dongle exposes itself to Windows. It may be as simple as adding the PID and VID to the library but it would require additional investigation to determine which steps to take.

Cheers

Hello Harrison,

Thanks for replying. Nordic should really take down ANTWARE II link from the nRF51 dongle product page then... They are really misleading people with that. I should have purchased the regular ANT dongle :/ Thanks again!
