Part Number: cc2640
Dear TI's Engineer team,
I'm developing a embedded tracking device on cc2640, and I need to switch the role of the device from peripheral to central in order to the device can ring a phone.
My coworker engineer asked this question last year in this link: https://e2e.ti.com/support/wireless_connectivity/bluetooth_low_energy/f/538/t/547098
In reply to RachelP:
Thanks for giving me the example.
My company already developed a tracking device on the Nordic, and Nordic ble-stack makes change role easily.
The device is normally working as a peripheral, so with a phone the device can be found easily by making the device ring.
Meanwhile, only when people are trying to find his/her phone, the device need to send data to the phone, and it makes the phone ring.
At that time the device needs to be a central.
Do you have any better idea for making the phone ring?
Any advice would be appreciated.
In reply to Kyung Kim:
Thanks for clarifying. The multi role project I linked to before has the ability to switch between central and peripheral mode. I would recommend you start there. However, due to flash memory limitations on the cc2640, if you are just beginning development you may want to consider using the CC2640R2.
For details on the multi-role project for the CC2640R2, you can view the readme on dev.ti.com: multi role readme
