nWP029 - Zephyr Bluetooth Low Energy Controller

The Zephyr™ open source project provides a Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) Controller that runs on all nRF5 ICs. The Controller is compatible with any Bluetooth-compliant Host.

This white paper gives a short overview of the Zephyr project, describes in what cases you should consider using the Zephyr Bluetooth LE Controller instead of one of Nordic Semiconductor's SoftDevices, and explains how to build and program this Controller on nRF5 ICs.
