Question about Bluetooth Long Range with nRF52840

Hello everyone,

right now I have two BMD-340 Evaluation Kits which used nRF52840 module and I want to evaluate Bluetooth Long Range and Data Rate of this module. I used s140 Softdevice in this case. When I used this s140, that means all of the examples which I used in nRF_SDK using Bluetooth 5 with Long Range? 

And if it's possible, an explanation about Softdevice is very helpful for me. I have read about it but it is outdated since 30-11-2018.

Best regards,

    No. You will need to configure the PHY settings for this. If you are looking at doing extended advertising on Coded PHY(long range) you will need to set the primary_phy to BLE_GAP_PHY_CODED. If you want to connect on Coded PHY, then you need to set the secondary_phy to BLE_GAP_PHY_CODED.

    We have a demo example here you can use to test this with.
