BLE woes ?

  • Hello All,

    First post (and first lopy adventure).
    It's better to tell now that I am a noob about python (working normally in C/C++ with Particle Photons and RedBear Duos), but I kickstarted lopy and here I am. So please forgive me if I write stupid or obvious things.

    I wrote a simple program to sniff ble advertisers around, and it works. But between the 200th and 300th iteration lopy hangs with

    Guru Meditation Error of type StoreProhibited occurred on core 0. Exception was unhandled.

    Am I doing something of terribly wrong here ? Thanks !

    from network import Bluetooth
    import binascii
    import gc
    bt = Bluetooth()
    times = 0
    while True:
        while bt.isscanning():
            adv = bt.get_adv()
            if adv:
                name = bt.resolve_adv_data(,  bt.ADV_NAME_CMPL)
                if name:
                   print("%s %s %s" % (binascii.hexlify(adv.mac),  name,  binascii.hexlify(bt.resolve_adv_data(,  bt.ADV_MANUFACTURER_DATA))))
        times += 1
        alloc = gc.mem_alloc()
        free  = gc.mem_free()
        print("lap %d heap %d free %d" % (times,  alloc, free))

  • @duffo64, thanks a lot for your report. We will check into it.

  • Thanks @abilio,

    and sorry for this. Firmware is the latest 1.2.2.b1
    If you see, my program prints logs (from 163 thru 168) losing all advertisements, and then Guru appears:

    lap 163 heap 32944 free 15056
    lap 164 heap 33024 free 14976
    lap 165 heap 33104 free 14896
    lap 166 heap 33184 free 14816
    lap 167 heap 33264 free 14736
    lap 168 heap 33344 free 14656

  • @duffo64, in order to help you out, we're going to need the firmware version number, and also a copy of the Guru Meditation Error dump (with all the registers) would be fine. Thanks in advance
