Bluetooth: Periodic Advertising with Responses (PAwR) Advertiser


A simple application demonstrating the BLE Periodic Advertising with Responses Advertiser functionality.

This sample will scan for the corresponding sync sample and send the required synchronization info to it. The advertising data is a counter that increases for each subevent.

Multiple devices can synchronize and respond to one advertiser.

Which subevent to listen to and in which response slot to respond is application specific. In this sample it is decided by the PAwR advertiser. Upon connection it will write to a GATT characteristic the assigned subevent and response slot.


  • A board with BLE support

  • A controller that supports the Periodic Advertising with Responses (PAwR) - Advertiser feature
