This is the documentation for the latest (main) development branch of Zephyr. If you are looking for the documentation of previous releases, use the drop-down menu on the left and select the desired version.

Bluetooth: Public Broadcast Source

Overview

Application demonstrating the LE Public Broadcast Profile source functionality. Will start advertising extended advertising and includes a Broadcast Audio Announcement. The advertised broadcast audio stream quality will cycle between high and standard quality every 15 seconds.

This sample can be found under samples/bluetooth/pbp_public_broadcast_source in the Zephyr tree.

Check the bluetooth samples section for general information.

Requirements

  • BlueZ running on the host, or

  • A board with Bluetooth Low Energy 5.2 support

Building and Running

When building targeting an nrf52 series board with the Zephyr Bluetooth Controller, use -DOVERLAY_CONFIG=overlay-bt_ll_sw_split.conf to enable the required ISO feature support.

Building for an nrf5340dk

You can build both the application core image and an appropriate controller image for the network core with:

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nrf5340dk/nrf5340/cpuapp --sysbuild samples/bluetooth/pbp_public_broadcast_source/

If you prefer to only build the application core image, you can do so by doing instead:

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nrf5340dk/nrf5340/cpuapp samples/bluetooth/pbp_public_broadcast_source/

In that case you can pair this application core image with the hci_ipc sample samples/bluetooth/hci_ipc/nrf5340_cpunet_iso-bt_ll_sw_split.conf configuration.

Building for a simulated nrf5340bsim

Similarly to how you would for real HW, you can do:

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nrf5340bsim/nrf5340/cpuapp --sysbuild samples/bluetooth/pbp_public_broadcast_source/

Note this will produce a Linux executable in ./build/zephyr/zephyr.exe. For more information, check this board documentation.

Building for a simulated nrf52_bsim

# From the root of the zephyr repository
west build -b nrf52_bsim samples/bluetooth/pbp_public_broadcast_source/ -- -DOVERLAY_CONFIG=overlay-bt_ll_sw_split.conf
