Mbed Studio does not detect my Arduino Nano 33 BLE


I just got my Arduino Nano 33 BLE and installed Mbed Studio. I opened the Blinky example just to try out how Mbed Studio works and compiled to project, but now I cannot flash my board.

Mbed studio does not detect my target. If I open up Arduino IDE I can flash my card and get board information there so I know my computer have connection.

Im on a Mac OS 11.1 and using Mbed Studio 1.3.1

Any suggestions?

Best regards


I am not sure but I think it is not possible.
Arduino Nano 33BLE run on top of MbedOS but it was not made for Mbed. It is not Mbed enabled.
Mbed enabled boards have full debugger like DAPLink, ST-Link. But Arduino Nano33BLE not have it.

For more information see this - Use MBED with Arduino MBED compatible board ? · Issue #19 · arduino/ArduinoCore-nRF528x-mbedos (github.com)

Okay, that’s a bit confusing but I stick to the Arduino IDE and use that then… seems I have some more reading to do to figure out this relation between mbed and Arduino.


This is now possible! See here: Mbed CE: Official Support for Arduino Nano 33 BLE
