I would like to add RSSI from WICED SMART to the trace. Please tell me where this is located. Is this captured in an example program?

Hello Carlos,

RSSI is valid ONLY when the device is a peripheral and is connected to a central.

Your App can use:

/// Reads the RSSI info collected for the current connection.
/// \return RSSI value in dB. When not connected or not known yet, will return 127.
int blecm_ReadRSSI(void);


With 2.0.1 SDK (20736/20737), in central mode, RSSI is one of the fields in the ADV packet.

The same function above can be used to read RSSI when connected.

Hope this helps.

Just to clarify, I would be using WICED SMART as BLE peripheral and I would like to monitor RSSI.

Hello cjurdane,

Based on your last post: Testing WICED SMART with Android Cellphone - you wish to monitor RSSI using another method other than the LightBlue App?

More exact measurements can be performed with a Frontline Sniffer as we do here in the lab.

Is this what you were looking for in your question?

Hello JT,

Yes, I would like to be able to see RSSI from the WICED SMART as a peripheral. For instance, suing the hello sensor sample code. Please tell me how I could find this value (RSSI).

Regards,

Hello Carlos,

We use a Frontline Sniffer to get more accurate RSSI readings as it produces a log file that contains the RSSI values.

Hello JT,

Is this available in a function in the code of the WICED SMART? Even if low accuracy, I am interested in the RSSI value provided by the WICED SMART board.
