Use CC2530+ZStack, why there's delay when broadcast data continuously
In my case, one coordinator, one router, all build with -DRFD_RCVC_ALWAYS_ON=TRUE.
When device A broadcast data packet continuously, device B will receive 9 packet, then there will be about 3 second device B cannot receive anything.
If I donot use broadcase, the continuouly data tranrfer will be OK. Is there anybody can tell me why the 3 second interrupt during broadcastting?
The ZigBee protocol is not designed to handle broadcast well and it is recommended for Application layer to not use it at all (except of course by using it indirectly, as in a Match Descriptor request). In any case, an Application should not be designed that depends on broadcast, unless, as you have seen, the broadcast frequency is very low. Search for broadcast here on this E2E and you will see a lot of discussion and specific references to the constants and settings in the Z-Stack which control and configure it.
Thanks for your reply.
