Re: BLE stack using PPI channels #ble #nrf52832

Chettimada, Vinayak Kariappa


The pre-programmed PPI are very specific to Nordic's in-house stack implementation needs. Some of them coincidentally can be re-used in Zephyr implementation.
I will try to send a PR by EOD, if its doing in few minutes. Else, assume that it’s a bit more work.

Hi Sebastian, Robert,

Sebastian, thanks for pointing out the existing issue.
Robert, would you please comment on that issue stating the needs of your application so we can evaluate how best to fix this and we can also include you in upcoming Pull Request reviews so you can make sure we've addressed it in a way compatible with your requirements?

Andrzej, Vinayak: We should revisit this as soon as possible. Is DTS an option here? I assume not since this is an nRF-specific hardware resource.
