Handling data two times from one of the peripherals

Hello,

I have been struggling with multilink uart example for a while. I have done 3 peripherals and one central communication but still I have some problems. I am using SDK 14.2.0 and 4 EYSHSNZWZ modules from Taiyo Yuden.

Central side sends data to peripherals that I send from computer via RS232 correctly, however when I send data from peripherals continuously, one of the peripherals sends the data two times. I think it is because of the central code, not the peripherals because I use same code for peripherals. I think that central shows the data two times. For example for handle 2, peripheral sends 5 bytes but central shows 10 bytes. For the other connection handles, central shows what is send from peripherals.

The main code for central is here:

I get no errors, but I should solve this "two times" problem. There should be a point that I failed to notice. Please help me on this. Thank you in advance.

By the way, same thing happens while sending data from central to peripherals. I mean, data is sent to handle 2, two times. :) but other handles receive the data as is is sent.

  • Hello,

    Do you get two events, or do you get twice the length on the data?

    e.g.:

    data = 1234512345 or data = 1122334455?

     

    What does the log look like when you send one message from the device with conn handle 2?

    Do you get the line: "Receiving data" two times? 

    Can you also try to add, in your BLE_NUS_C_EVT_NUS_TX_EVT event:

    NRF_LOG_INFO("Uartttan data alindi. conn_handle= %d", p_ble_nus_evt->conn_handle);

    to see that you are not actually connected to the same device twice?

     

    I assume that you have the same project/.hex-file on all the peripherals? Do you? do you have any #define ECHOBACK_BLE_UART_DATA in your peripheral project?

     

    Best regards,

    Edvin
