How to Store the Custom Address, Device Name and Device ID on nRF52 Series

Following up the post (Description of UICR on NRF52 series) https://jimmywongbluetooth.wordpress.com/2019/08/19/manufacturer-storage-data-on-uicr-region/, I would like to describe how to use the UICR to store the custom BLE address, Device Name and Device ID in this blog.

For example, as below table, there are list of the devices to have such configuration.

Device Number # Device ID (8 bytes)
0x10001080 – 0x10001087
NRF_UICR->CUSTOMER[0]
NRF_UICR->CUSTOMER[1]
Address (6 bytes)
0x10001088 – 0x1000108F
NRF_UICR->CUSTOMER[2]
NRF_UICR->CUSTOMER[3]
Device Name (11 bytes)
0x10001090 – 0x1000109B
NRF_UICR->CUSTOMER[4]
NRF_UICR->CUSTOMER[5]
NRF_UICR->CUSTOMER[6]
1 FC000000 00000001 FF00 00000001 DEVICE_00001
2 FC000000 00000002 FF00 00000002 DEVICE_00002
3 FC000000 00000003 FF00 00000003 DEVICE_00003
Device Name “DEVICE_00001”

  1. Hi jimmy
    How can I read what I just recorded, that is, how do I check that the address, name and ID were recorded correctly?
