Re: Get RSSI in DTM(Zephyr)
Per the Bluetooth Spec, there are no DTM commands to obtain RSSI. You would need to add your own custom command in firmware.

Sorry to bother you.
I use hci command LE Receiver Test Command and LE Test End Command let DUT enter Test mode and can get packets from equipment successfully.
Equipment send 1500 Bytes with RSSI(70 dbm) to DUT
At the same time , I try to launch “btmon” tool to get RSSI information , but I can’t get any RSSI.
Are there any methods can get RSSI in DTM?
From: Jamie Mccrae [mailto:Jamie.Mccrae@...]
Generally you would be measuring the RSSI on the test equipment from a signal generated by your Bluetooth radio, and would be using a calibrated accurate test system. The nRF51824 (from the product spec) has an RSSI accuracy of +/-6dB, that is wildly inaccurate and I cannot see any reason to want to measure/record it on every module. You can add a non-standard command to read and return the RSSI if needed to the DTM code.

Our customer requested us to test conductive BLE RSSI in factory for accuracy improvement.
Could you please clarify the following questions?
In our experiences of other algorithm(LTE/WCDMA…etc.), RSSI usually can be detected easily in test mode via a CW tone. So it’s why we want
to double check this.

I don’t remember if DTM mode has any RSSI command in the Specification.
Could you please elaborate on your requirements?

We have a product using nRF51824 with zephyr.
We use hci_uart sample code and follow below link , and we can get other BT device’s RSSI.
We have a question , If it is in DTM(Direct Test Mode) , how can we get RSSI?
Could you give us some suggestions.
