I have several Particle Xenon’s, some Nordic nrf52840 USB Dongles, some Makerdiary nRF52840 USB dongles, and some Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense boards. I am getting a Segger Edu mini J-link and the Particle debugger board. I want to be able to run all these boards with similar coding. Obviously PlatformIO is the place to be.
My question is: if I can get these boards running, would it be easier to flash a different bootloader to a few of the boards? For example If I can get the Arduino Nano 33 BLE working could I flash it’s bootloader to the Nordic nRF52840 USB dongle and make my life a little bit easier.
All these boards run the nRF52840 Nordic SOC, so they should have some similarities.
If you want more info, I have a site here about why I would even try to inflict this much pain on myself.
Also if anyone knows of another nRF52840 board that already works well with PlatformIO could they tell me about it. I know the github for the nrf52 PlatformIO is platform-nordicnrf52
