Inter Frame Space (IFS) is the consecutive packets on the same channel index set by the BLE spec at 150 us and cannot be changed. Smart RF Studio packet interval is the time in between packets using the BLE PHY which are transmitted over-the-air for testing purposes and cannot be reduced to less than 1 ms.
Thanks for the reply. Can you explain the difference between Consecutive and Time in between packets in you reply?
Are you saying that we do not need to consider IFS during testing time and with packet interval option we can change IFS during testing?
BLE Spec: There is a mandatory 150μs delay that must be between each packet sent. This is known as the Inter Frame Space.
Smart RF Studio 7: There is a limitation of 1ms interval between each packet sent.
Thus while using Smart RF Studio 7 you will not be able to violate the IFS requirement from the BLE spec.
