    UART like service?

      Hi,

       

      Nordic offers Nordic UART Service (NUS) Application as an example that emulates a serial port over BLE.

      Could somebody share code to realise similar functionality on BCM20732S, please?

      Adafruit has adopted it in their BLE modules.

      And it is gaining popularity. There are already several iOS Apps supporting it.

       

      Cordova's Bluetooth Serial plugin supports it so I can expect even more apps are coming.

      I'd like to develop BLE hardware supporting compatible UART like service based on BCM20732S.

      But my skills are limited to implement it myself...

       

      I know ACKme and iDevices offer BLE modules with UART like service but I'd like to stick with BCM20732S for the price. (If I had to use a module, I'd use Nordic based module anyway!).
