Disabling & Re-enabling BLE

Postby paddy_b » Thu Nov 28, 2019 9:51 am

I have an application which uses BLE and want to place the ESP into light sleep.
I know it's not possible to maintain any BLE activity in light sleep mode, but should it be possible to disable bluetooth and re-enable the same configuration later, without having to re-initialise everything?


Code: Select all

then later calling

Code: Select all

appears to work, but a following call to esp_ble_gatts_start_service (which works fine beforehand) results in this:

Code: Select all

Re: Disabling & Re-enabling BLE

Thanks for your reply... didn't really have anything in common as far as I could tell.

I've got the functionality I need working now more or less, but I pretty much have to restart from scratch.
It seems some things persist (GATT & GAP callbacks only need registering once at the start) but others don't (esp_ble_gatts_app_register, esp_ble_gap_config_adv_data_raw, esp_ble_gatts_create_attr_tab).

I'm still not sure why esp_bt_controller_init and esp_bt_controller_enable (and disable/deinit, and equivalents for bluedroid) are separate functions, if they can only be used together. I expect I'm missing something.

Hopefully someone from Espressif can enlighten me.

Maybe this is not about esp-idf structure, but recently I found this video on yt. On this screenshot you can see how controller is separated from host:
