I have a custom board that, among other things, includes the cyble 222014-01 and a cell modem. I have basic UART working between the modules. I need to be able to send the BLE's UUID as one string to the Cell Modem, but I am having issues.

(please be nice to me, if this is a simple fix; I am new-ish to embedded and C)

I found basic code to print the UUID (as multiple prints):

                localAddr.type = 0u;

                CyBle_GetDeviceAddress(&localAddr);

                for(i = CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_SIZE; i > 0u; i--)

                {

                    DBG_PRINTF("%2.2x", localAddr.bdAddr[i-1]);

                }

My current code is (btw, I've tried many variations):

                        localAddr.type = 0u;

                        if(CyBle_GetDeviceAddress(&localAddr) == CYBLE_ERROR_OK){

                            for(uint k = CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_SIZE; k > 0u; k--){

                                char tempChar;

                                sprintf(&tempChar, "%d", localAddr.bdAddr[i-1]);

                                ThisAddress = (unsigned char)tempChar;

                            }

                        }

And, it sends:

{000000_lqç[M߇МN@²]×èvqÑÉ£Us>/•Ú«<SI>¿©ÝÄ.¬H}ù¡ÒŸÇßRœÂßtÞŒ*géú#ìôýûß×ýyjÖé<DLE>ë#<ETX>S+½8U\íþÖ"Å<SYN>“aÊÕÎÁ<SO>×GIÿÆ—îë+ÄÃéŒÿZç½ä~Ûeé6gvÙë¯Ïß<GS>“ÇÐñ„)|]ÆÆ7×<DC3/XOFF>‰·Ø÷øYR—WÙvKu™7*Äѧìò<DC1/XON>Ž¬þ'衈p5µµÓ7ùh—¯¦ê”פ¯–_žs©<NAK>éR5½§FÚíW6ùw<EM>XíÿL¾«®Ú밍œêÏÅîÝi‡iulœü˜¡Ô=<ENQ>Fû¶ç<STX>>Ì»´ÿîÿ{ÿºÿV½<DEL>ŸAT

I got it!

I had to put CyBle_ProcessEvents();  after the  CyBle_Start(AppCallBack);  for some reason.

Maybe because I start my UART before the BLE.

Either way, I have it working.

ps - why does the default example code print the MAC Address (UUID) backwards?

With my code changed to:

                        localAddr.type = 0u;

                        if(CyBle_GetDeviceAddress(&localAddr) == CYBLE_ERROR_OK){

                            for(uint k = CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_SIZE; k > 0u; k--){

                                char tempChar;

                                //sprintf(&tempChar, "%d", localAddr.bdAddr[i-1]);

                                //ThisAddress = (unsigned char)tempChar;

                                sprintf(&tempChar, "%2.2x", localAddr.bdAddr[i-1]);

                                SendCommand(&tempChar);

                            }

                        }

It now prints/sends: 000000000000

In topdesign, I set the BLE to "Silicon generated "Company assigned" part of device address"

Hi Steve,

  Were you able to get the data over UART ?

You can refer code examples from below link ...where some of the examples do send the device address over UART.

Hi Gyan,

I have not been able to get it to work.

Thank you for the resource. Do you know which one(s)?

I have code that now gives me this:

804929199580

When the actual UUID is:

00a0509ab3d5

Am I missing a conversion somewhere?

Looking like you are sending decimal but you want to send hex.  Use the debugger and see what tempChar is each time before you do the SendCommand.

Hello Steve,

Could you post the code which gave you this result, please?

"I have code that now gives me this:

804929199580

When the actual UUID is:

00a0509ab3d5"

The CyBle_GetDeviceAddress() function needs to be called after CYBLE_STACK_ON, i.e. after the stack has been initialized. If you call it before that, the function might return invalid data.

                    if(CYBLE_EVT_STACK_ON){

                       

                        localAddr.type = 0x00; //public = 0, Random = 1

                        CYBLE_API_RESULT_T CyBle_GetDeviceAddress(CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_T* localAddr);

                       

                        if(CyBle_GetDeviceAddress(&localAddr) == CYBLE_ERROR_OK){

                            for(uint8 k = CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_SIZE; k > 0; k--){

                                char tempChar;

                                sprintf(&tempChar, "%.2x", (unsigned char)localAddr.bdAddr[k-1]);

                                SendCommand(&tempChar); //send command via uart

                               

                            }

                        }

                    }

Confirm that the BLE stack component has been started.

This example code was taken from "Day 25" main.c.

int main()
{

    /* Start BLE component */
    CyBle_Start(AppCallBack);

.

.

.

.

void AppCallBack(uint32 event, void* eventParam)

{

    CYBLE_API_RESULT_T apiResult;

    CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_T localAddr;

    uint32  i = 0u;

  

    switch (event)

    {

        /**********************************************************

        *                       General Events

        ***********************************************************/

        case CYBLE_EVT_STACK_ON: /* This event received when component is Started */

            /* Enter into discoverable mode so that remote can search it. */

            apiResult = CyBle_GappStartAdvertisement(CYBLE_ADVERTISING_FAST);

            if(apiResult != CYBLE_ERROR_OK)

            {

                DBG_PRINTF("StartAdvertisement API Error: %d \r\n", apiResult);

            }

            DBG_PRINTF("Bluetooth On, StartAdvertisement with addr: ");

            localAddr.type = 0u;

            CyBle_GetDeviceAddress(&localAddr);

            for(i = CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_SIZE; i > 0u; i--)

            {

                DBG_PRINTF("%2.2x", localAddr.bdAddr[i-1]);

            }

            DBG_PRINTF("\r\n");

            break;

        case CYBLE_EVT_HARDWARE_ERROR:    /* This event indicates that some internal HW error has occurred. */

            DBG_PRINTF("CYBLE_EVT_HARDWARE_ERROR\r\n");

            break;

My 'if' statement makes sure the BLE stack is on. -- it is turned on in another part of the code.

When my code is run on the device, it goes into the 'if' statement, therefore, it is on.

Hmmm.  What does the debugger see for tempChar each time before if does the SendCommand?

While in debug mode,

the localAddr.bdAddr is:

0x80

0x95

0x19

0x29

0x49

0x80

When going through the loop, the TempChar is:

0x38 '8'

0x34 '4'

0x32 '2'

0x31 '1'

0x39 '9'

0x38 '8'

BTW, if I do "random," it is all 0x00

And, it doesn't matter if I check the "Silicon generated "Company assigned" part of device" in GAP settings or not.

Hi,

May be I'm off the point, but I'd rather write something like

=======

for (uint k = CYBLE_GAP_BD_ADDR_SIZE; k > 0u ; k--) {

    char tempChar[3] ;

    sprintf(tempChar, "%02x", localAddr.bdAddr[k-1] ;

    SendCommand(tempChar) ;

}

=======

Moto,

That makes more sense for the TempChar part, but it still doesn't answer why the address is wrong compared to what is being shown when advertised.

Just so you all know, this is saying the device address is 804929199580 no matter which device I program/use.

This thread/question also mentions the same address PRIVACY :LE Create Connection Command
