sl_status_t sl_bt_system_hello ( )

Verify whether the communication between the host and the device is functional.

Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_get_version()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_get_version ( uint16_t *  major,
uint16_t *  minor,
uint16_t *  patch,
uint16_t *  build,
uint32_t *  bootloader,
uint32_t *  hash 
)

Get the firmware version information.

Parameters
[out]majorMajor release version
[out]minorMinor release version
[out]patchPatch release number
[out]buildBuild number
[out]bootloaderBootloader version
[out]hashVersion hash
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_reset()

void sl_bt_system_reset ( uint8_t  dfu)

Reset the system. The command does not have a response but it triggers one of the boot events (normal reset or boot to DFU mode) depending on the selected boot mode.

Parameters
[in]dfuEnum sl_bt_system_boot_mode_t. Boot mode. Values:
  • sl_bt_system_boot_mode_normal (0x0): Boot to normal mode
  • sl_bt_system_boot_mode_uart_dfu (0x1): Boot to UART DFU mode
  • sl_bt_system_boot_mode_ota_dfu (0x2): Boot to OTA DFU mode

Events

◆ sl_bt_system_halt()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_halt ( uint8_t  halt)

Force radio to idle state and allow device to sleep. Advertising, scanning, connections, and software timers are halted by this command. Halted operations resume after calling this command with parameter 0. Connections stay alive if the system is resumed before connection supervision timeout.

Use this command only for a short time period (a few seconds at maximum). Although it halts Bluetooth activity, all tasks and operations still exist inside the stack with their own concepts of time. Halting the system for a long time period may have negative consequences on stack's internal states.

NOTE: The software timer is also halted. Hardware interrupts are the only way to wake up from energy mode 2 when the system is halted.

Parameters
[in]haltValues:
  • 1: halt
  • 0: resume
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_linklayer_configure()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_linklayer_configure ( uint8_t  key,
size_t  data_len,
const uint8_t *  data 
)

Send configuration data to the link layer. This command fine tunes low-level Bluetooth operations.

Parameters

  • sl_bt_system_linklayer_config_key_halt (0x1): Same as system_halt command, value-0 Stop Radio 1- Start Radio
  • sl_bt_system_linklayer_config_key_priority_range (0x2): Sets the RAIL priority_mapping offset field of the link layer priority configuration structure to the first byte of the value field.
  • sl_bt_system_linklayer_config_key_scan_channels (0x3): Sets channels to scan on. The first byte of the value is the channel map. 0x1 = Channel 37, 0x2 = Channel 38, 0x4 = Channel 39
  • sl_bt_system_linklayer_config_key_set_flags (0x4): Sets the link layer configuration flags. The value is a little endian 32-bit integer. Flag Values:
    • 0x00000001 - Disable Feature Exchange when slave
    • 0x00000002 - Disable Feature Exchange when master
  • sl_bt_system_linklayer_config_key_clr_flags (0x5): The value is flags to clear. Flags are the same as in SET_FLAGS command.

◆ sl_bt_system_set_max_tx_power()

SL_BGAPI_DEPRECATED sl_status_t sl_bt_system_set_max_tx_power ( int16_t  power,
int16_t *  set_power 
)

Deprecated and replaced by sl_bt_system_set_tx_power.

Set the global maximum radiated TX power for Bluetooth. This returns the selected power level that is radiated from the antenna at TX. The transmitter power at antenna pin will apply the RF TX path gain to match this setting. RF TX path gain can be set in the Bluetooth configuration. If the GATT server contains a TX power service, the TX Power Level attribute will be updated with the selected maximum power level.

The selected power level may be less than the specified value if the device does not meet the power requirements. For Bluetooth connections, the maximum TX power is limited to 10 dBm if Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is not enabled.

The maximum TX power level can also be configured in the Bluetooth configuration and passed into the Bluetooth stack initialization. By default, the global maximum TX power is 8 dBm.

NOTE: Do not use this command while advertising or scanning. Furthermore, the stack does not allow setting TX powers during connections.

Parameters
[in]powerThe maximum radiated TX power in 0.1 dBm steps. For example, value 10 means 1 dBm.
[out]set_powerSelected maximum radiated TX power
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_set_tx_power()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_set_tx_power ( int16_t  min_power,
int16_t  max_power,
int16_t *  set_min,
int16_t *  set_max 
)

Set the global minimum and maximum radiated TX power levels for Bluetooth. This returns selected power levels that are radiated from the antenna at TX. The transmitter power at antenna pin will apply the RF TX path gain to match this setting. RF TX path gain can be set in the Bluetooth configuration. If the GATT server contains a TX power service, the TX Power Level attribute will be updated with the selected maximum power level.

A selected power level may be different than the requested value if the device cannot meet the requirement. For Bluetooth connections, the maximum radiated TX power is limited to 10 dBm if Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is not enabled.

The minimum TX power setting is used by LE power control. It has no effect in Bluetooth stack if the LE power control feature is not enabled. However, the application may still use this setting for other purposes, e.g., setting the minimum TX power for DTM transmitter test.

The minimum and maximum radiated TX power levels can also be configured in the Bluetooth configuration and passed into the Bluetooth stack initialization. By default, the minimum radiated TX power level is configured to -3 dBm and the maximum radiated TX power level to 8 dBm.

NOTE: Do not use this command while advertising or scanning. Furthermore, the stack does not allow setting TX powers during connections.

Parameters
[in]min_powerMinimum radiated TX power. Unit: 0.1 dBm. For example, the value 10 means 1 dBm.
[in]max_powerMaximum radiated TX power. Unit: 0.1 dBm. For example, the value 10 means 1 dBm.
[out]set_minThe selected minimum radiated TX power. Unit: 0.1 dBm
[out]set_maxThe selected maximum radiated TX power. Unit: 0.1 dBm
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_get_tx_power_setting()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_get_tx_power_setting ( int16_t *  support_min,
int16_t *  support_max,
int16_t *  set_min,
int16_t *  set_max,
int16_t *  rf_path_gain 
)

Get TX power settings including the minimum and maximum radiated TX power levels the device supports, the minimum and maximum radiated TX power levels currently set in the stack, and the TX RF path gain configuration.

Parameters
[out]support_minThe minimum radiated TX power the device supports. Unit: 0.1 dBm
[out]support_maxThe maximum radiated TX power the device supports. Unit: 0.1 dBm
[out]set_minThe minimum radiated TX power currently set in stack. Unit: 0.1 dBm
[out]set_maxThe maximum radiated TX power currently set in stack. Unit: 0.1 dBm
[out]rf_path_gainTX RF path gain. Unit: 0.1 dBm
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_set_identity_address()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_set_identity_address ( bd_addr  address,
uint8_t  type 
)

Set the device's Bluetooth identity address. The address can be a public device address or a static device address. A valid address set with this command will be written into persistent storage using NVM keys. The stack returns an error if the static device address does not conform to the Bluetooth specification.

The new address will be effective in the next system reboot. The stack will use the address in the NVM keys when present. Otherwise, it uses the default Bluetooth public device address which is programmed at production.

The stack treats 00:00:00:00:00:00 and ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff as invalid addresses. Therefore, passing one of them into this command will cause the stack to delete the NVM keys and use the default address in the next system reboot.

Note: Because the NVM keys are located in flash and flash wearing can occur, avoid calling this command regularly.

Parameters
[in]addressBluetooth identity address in little endian format
[in]typeAddress type
  • 0: Public device address
  • 1: Static device address
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_get_identity_address()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_get_identity_address ( bd_addr address,
uint8_t *  type 
)

Read the Bluetooth identity address used by the device, which can be a public or random static device address.

Parameters
[out]addressBluetooth public address in little endian format
[out]typeAddress type
  • 0: Public device address
  • 1: Static random address
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

◆ sl_bt_system_get_random_data()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_get_random_data ( uint8_t  length,
size_t  max_data_size,
size_t *  data_len,
uint8_t *  data 
)

Get random data up to 16 bytes.

◆ sl_bt_system_set_soft_timer()

sl_status_t sl_bt_system_set_soft_timer ( uint32_t  time,
uint8_t  handle,
uint8_t  single_shot 
)

Start a software timer. Multiple concurrent timers can be running simultaneously. 256 unique timer handles (IDs) are available. The maximum number of concurrent timers is configurable at device initialization. Up to 16 concurrent timers can be configured. The default configuration is 4. As the RAM for storing timer data is pre-allocated at initialization, an application should not configure the amount more than it needs for minimizing RAM usage.

Parameters
[in]time

Frequency interval of events, which indicates how often to send events in hardware clock ticks (1 second is equal to 32768 ticks).

The smallest supported interval value is 328, which is around 10 milliseconds. Any parameters between 0 and 328 will be rounded up to 328. The maximum value is 2147483647, which corresponds to about 18.2 hours.

If time is 0, removes the scheduled timer with the same handle.

[in]handleTimer handle to use, which is returned in timeout event
[in]single_shotTimer mode. Values:
  • 0: false (timer is repeating)
  • 1: true (timer runs only once)
Returns
SL_STATUS_OK if successful. Error code otherwise.

uint8_t  single_shot 
)

Start a software timer with slack. The slack parameter allows the stack to optimize wakeups and save power. The timer event is triggered between time and time + slack. See also description of sl_bt_system_set_soft_timer command.

Parameters
[in]time

An interval between how often to send events in hardware clock ticks (1 second is equal to 32768 ticks).

The smallest interval value supported is 328, which is around 10 milliseconds. Any parameters between 0 and 328 will be rounded up to 328. The maximum value is 2147483647, which corresponds to about 18.2 hours.

If time is 0, removes the scheduled timer with the same handle.

[in]slackSlack time in hardware clock ticks
[in]handleTimer handle to use, which is returned in timeout event
[in]single_shotTimer mode. Values:
  • 0: false (timer is repeating)
