SoftDevice


The S130 SoftDevice is a precompiled and linked binary image implementing a Bluetooth® 4.2 low energy protocol stack for the nRF51 Series of SoCs. The SoftDevice relays hardware events to an application software. Software triggered interrupts in a reserved IRQ are used to signal events from the SoftDevice to the application. The application is then responsible for handling the interrupt and for invoking the relevant SoftDevice functions to obtain the event data.
