Simple peer to peer with timer-control to the protocol addition ?
Hello Ti E2E community,I am currently developing an application based on the CC2510-mini dev kit, which is a great deal to start with by the way.Application development is simple, and already developed for the main big thing which is radio control & protocol thanks to the Simpliciti stack & simple peer2peer example.In the swru237, ie CC1110 and CC2510 Mini DK Software Example User's Guide document, there is this sentence : "The slave node does not use PM3 to go to sleep after a period without receiving packets like the master node has. This is because it is intended to be on a fixed power source. However, with the introduction of a timer-control to the protocol, this can be implemented." ( extracted from the 5.3.2 Slave mode chapter)I am looking at transmitting packets like every 5 secs for example, with the slave node off for most of this time, ie not always in RX mode.Did anyone already have implemented such kind of timer ? what would be the recommendation ? what should the timer be programmed against, ie fixed sleep time value after each received packet ?, etc...I am not asking for an already made piece of code ( if available great, i'll read it :), i would like to understand what is the best way to implement such a "timer-controlled protocol" in the simple peer to peer project.Note: I hope the question have not been answered by the way in other post, i've browsed before posting, could not find an answer, if so, feel free to redirect me.thanks for your support,best regards,fab.
