Returns
true if the application may sleep but the stack may be expecting incoming messages.

emberPhyConfigInit()

EmberStatus emberPhyConfigInit ( EmberPhyType phyType )

Indicate if the PHY configuration of the stack. Currently only supporting EMBER_RADIO_CONFIGURATOR and EMBER_STANDARD_PHY_2_4GHZ . It must be called before initialising the stack.

emberRadioNeedsCalibratingHandler()

void emberRadioNeedsCalibratingHandler ( void )

The radio calibration callback function.

This handler is invoked by the stack upon receiving a "calibration needed" event from the radio to inform the application that it should perform calibration of the current channel as soon as possible using the emberCalibrateCurrentChannel() API. While calibration only takes tens of microseconds, the application can failsafe any critical processes or peripherals before calling emberCalibrateCurrentChannel() . The application must call emberCalibrateCurrentChannel() in response to this callback to maintain expected radio performance.

emberSetMacParams()

EmberStatus emberSetMacParams ( int8_t ccaThreshold,
uint8_t maxCcaAttempts,
uint8_t minBackoffExp,
uint8_t maxBackoffExp,
uint16_t ccaBackoff,
uint16_t ccaDuration,
uint8_t maxRetries,
uint32_t csmaTimeout,
uint16_t ackTimeout
)

Sets the MAC layer transmission parameters.

Parameters
[in] ccaThreshold The CCA RSSI threshold, in dBm, above which the channel is considered 'busy'. This parameter is by default set to EMBER_RADIO_CCA_THRESHOLD .
[in] maxCcaAttempts The maximum number of clear channel assessment attempts that are performed prior to fail to transmit a packet with EMBER_PHY_TX_CCA_FAIL status. This parameter is set by default to 4. If this parameter is set to 0, the CCA assessment shall not be performed.
[in] minBackoffExp The backoff exponent used if the initial channel clear assessment fails. This parameter is set by default to 3. Note: this is meaningful only if the checkCca parameter is set to true .
[in] maxBackoffExp The backoff exponent used if the final channel clear assessment fails. This parameter is set by default to 5. Note: this is meaningful only if the checkCca parameter is set to true .
[in] ccaBackoff The backoff unit period in microsecond. It is multiplied by the random backoff exponential controlled by minBackoffExp and maxBackoffExp to determine the overall backoff period. This parameter is set by default to the PHY symbol time in microseconds multiplied by 20.
[in] ccaDuration The minimum desired CCA check duration in microseconds. This parameter is set by default to the PHY symbol time in microseconds multiplied by 8.
[in] maxRetries The number of transmission retries that is performed if no acknowledgment was received. This parameter is set by default to 3 (which means that a total of 4 transmission attempts will be performed).
[in] csmaTimeout An overall timeout in microsecond time base for the the CSMA operations. This value is set by default to 0 which means that no timeout is imposed.
[in] ackTimeout The ack timeout in microsends after which the transmitting shall give up waiting for an acknowledment. This parameter is set by default to ( EMBER_MAC_ACK_TIMEOUT_MS * 1000).
Note
The CSMA/CA (CCA) values are directly used in RAIL's RAIL_CsmaConfig_t and further information can be found in the RAIL API documentation.
Returns
An EmberStatus value indicating whether the MAC parameters were successfully set or the reason of failure.

emberSetRadioChannel()

EmberStatus emberSetRadioChannel ( uint16_t channel )

Set the channel to use for sending and receiving messages on the current network. The available channels depend on the radio config you use, and channels can differ more than the frequency if it's a multi-PHY config.

Note
Care should be taken when using this API. All devices on a network must use the same channel. Each call triggers a token write. Excessive usage might cause flash to wear-out.
Parameters
[in] channel A desired radio channel.
Returns
An EmberStatus value of:

emberSetRadioChannelExtended()

EmberStatus emberSetRadioChannelExtended ( uint16_t channel,
bool persistent
)

Set the channel to use for sending and receiving messages on the current network. The available channels depend on the radio config you use, and channels can differ more than the frequency if it's a multi-PHY config.

Note
Care should be taken when using this API. All devices on a network must use the same channel.
Parameters
[in] channel A desired radio channel.
[in] persistent A flag to instruct the stack to save the channel setting in persistent or not. Each persistent call triggers a token write. Excessive usage might cause flash to wear-out.
Returns
An EmberStatus value of:

emberSetRadioPower()

EmberStatus emberSetRadioPower ( int16_t power,
bool persistent
)

Set the radio output power at which a node is to operate for the current network. The radio has a finite power resolution, so it will approximate the requested power with the closest possible value at or below the requested value.

Note
Care should be taken when using this API on a running network, because it directly impacts the established link qualities neighboring nodes have with the node on which it is called. This can lead to disruption of existing routes and erratic network behavior.
Parameters
[in] power Desired radio output power, in deci-dBm.
[in] persistent A flag to instruct the stack to save the power setting in persistent or not.
Returns
An EmberStatus value indicating the success or failure of the command. Failure indicates that the requested power level is out of range.

emberSetRadioPowerMode()

EmberStatus emberSetRadioPowerMode ( bool radioOn )

Allow the application to turn the radio on/off. This API is intended for use with direct devices only.

Parameters
[in] radioOn If this parameter is true , the radio is turned on, otherwise it's turned off.
Returns
An EmberStatus value indicating the success or failure of the command. Failure indicates that the node type is a type other than EMBER_DIRECT_DEVICE .

emberSetSecurityKey()

EmberStatus emberSetSecurityKey ( EmberKeyData * key )

Set the security key.

Parameters
[out] key An EmberKeyData value containing the security key to be set.
Returns
An EmberStatus value of EMBER_SUCCESS if the key was successfully set. Otherwise, it returns an EmberStatus value of EMBER_INVALID_CALL .

This handler is invoked in ISR context when certain stack-related ISR routines fire.

emberStackIsUp()

bool emberStackIsUp ( void )

Indicate whether the stack is currently up.

Returns true if the stack is joined to a network and ready to send and receive messages. This reflects only the state of the local node and does not indicate whether or not other nodes are able to communicate with this node.

Returns
true if the stack is up, false otherwise.

Perform Temperature VCO calibration calibration on the current channel. The stack will notify the application of the need for channel calibration via the emberRadioNeedsCalibratingHandler() callback function during emberTick() . This function should only be called from within the context of the emberRadioNeedsCalibratingHandler() callback function. Note if this function is called when the radio is off, it will turn the radio on and leave it on.

Returns
