Let’s just get on with it!

  • download sdk from developer.nordicsemi.com for me it was this nRF52_SDK_0.9.2.zip and unzip to somewhere. For me it was D:/nordicsemi.
  • download make and install
  • download http://www.mingw.org/wiki/msys and add to path (should do it by itself)
  • download https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded to somewhere, for me it was D:/gnu/5.2 2015q4
  • update Makefile.windows found in nRF52_SDK_INSTALL\components\toolchain\gcc

You should be ready to go! Let’s try it now

Locate the blinky example, and find the folder that holds the makefile, for me this is D:\nordicsemi\nRF52_SDK_0.9.2_dbc28c9\examples\peripheral\blinky\pca10036\blank\armgcc. From here, execute make nrf52832_xxaa.

The next steps are as follows:

  • Open nRFgo Studio
  • Click Segger XXXXX entry in the Device Manager
  • Make sure Program Application is chosen in the tabs to the right in the program
  • Browse to find the newly created .hex file
  • Click ‘program’ and stand by to watch the board come to life!

I always spend way too much time setting up this, so this is a reference to myself. Feel free to use it for your own benefit.
