## application stops at sd_nvic_EnableIRQ(SWI2_IRQn)

Hi, My application always stops at the end of ble_stack_init() exactly at:

return sd_nvic_EnableIRQ(SWI2_IRQn);


of the function softdevice_handler_init.

My board does not have a low frequency external oscillator this is why my clock source is set to "NRF_CLOCK_LFCLKSRC_RC_250_PPM_4000MS_CALIBRATION"

## Radio: frequency deviation & drift, vs Bluetooth requirements

I have a couple of questions regarding Radio transmission for BLE.

1) Is the radio driven by one of the HFCLKs? If so, it confuses me how a 16M clock can drive/derive a much faster 2.4 GHz radio ... (more)
