   1. can I use the puart? What's the different between puart and hci uart?

    2. What function should I call to getChart from Rx pin? It seems I can output chars by calling function WICED_BT_TRACE

Hi llll_2991886​,

1. HCI UART is used for programming the device as well as to see the debug traces if configured so in application. PUART is used to see the UART logs.

2. Yes you can use WICED_BT_TRACE() to print the characters on screen.

I would suggest you to go through GitHub - cypresssemiconductorco/CypressAcademy_WBT101_Files: Files for WICED Bluetooth 101 class.​ This will help you understand functionality and more details about the product.

The documents you provided is very useful, thank you so much!

One more question, can the board work in master mode?  Once the power is off, the firwware loaded to the board doesn't work anymore.
