Bluetooth and wifi switching
I am planning to get Wipy 3.0.
Does this board allow concurrent wifi and bluetooth operation ?
if not, how fast i can switch between them ?
As the board only has a shared WiFi / BT antenna / radio, it is not possible to use them concurrently.
I must admit I have never tried it before, so I quickly drafted this up:
from network import WLAN from network import Bluetooth import time wlan = WLAN() wlan.init(mode=WLAN.AP, ssid="hello world", auth=None) print(wlan.ifconfig(id=1)) time.sleep(10) print('scanning bt') bt = Bluetooth() bt.start_scan(10) time.sleep(10) print('scandone') print(bt.get_adv())
And connected my computer to the AP. It did temporarily lose connection, but was quickly recovered after the 10 seconds of BT scanning. I am not exactly sure of the speed you need, but if I must guess it takes as long as establishing a normal WiFi connection?
