DA14585 BLE peripheral with Beacon support

Dear Dialog support team,

We have the need to notify nearby mobile phones of BLE device proximity while a dedicated app may be in background or killed, and thus we opted for Beacon mode. The immediate action when the application wakes is to connect to the DA14585 which should act then as a peripheral.

Would it be possible for DA14585 to :

- Act as a beacon and a peripheral simultaneously ?

- Alternate beacon and peripheral modes with a software control ?

regards,

Haythem

Hi hboughzala,

Hi hboughzala,

Can you please clarify the below statement?

>>> The immediate action when the application wakes is to connect to the DA14585 which should act then as a peripheral.

Will the DA14585 be configured as a GAP Central initially?

What do you mean to act as Beacon? Do you mean to advertise non-connectable events?

Please share more clarifications.

Thanks, PM_Dialog
