BLE beacon in standby()...?

Hi all,

Just pondering if it would be possible to have a BLE beacon running during standby() on the PYBD.

The 1DX has an internal pull-down resistor on the BT_REG_ON pin that can be "disabled through programming" which is vague but possibly useful. What are the many and obvious reasons why this is never going to work? :?

Great question.

On the face of it, I think this should probably be do-able, but I'd have to do some experiments. I'll add it to the TODO list!

(And generally some experiments around how the BT controller and host stack handles the main chip going in and out of standby would be worth doing anyway)
