KW41Z Hybrid BLE + 802.15.4 coordinator example does not work

Has anyone got the example project below working because I cannot?

frdmkw41z/wireless_examples/hybrid/ble_802_15_4_fsci_black_box_bm

 

This project appears to have been used in "https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/application-note/AN12231.pdf " where it appears to work fine.

 

I have imported the project from the SDK.

It builds and downloads fine to my FDRM-KW41Z development PCB. When I start it LED4 starts flashing as it should according to the document "Bluetooth Low Energy Demo Application Users Guide".

At this point it should have started a 802.15.4 coordinator and be waiting for a button press on SW4. The problems:

1. The coordinator is not running. I used a packet sniffer on every available channel to check for a response to a beacon request. Nothing.

2. Pressing SW4 does not stop the LED flashing nor does it appear in a bluetooth scan.

 

My colleague has tried it to same effect.

Looking at the code there does not appear to be anything to do with a coordinator - no Pan or node ID.

 

My System:

Windows 10

MCUXpresso IDE v10.0.0 [Build 344] [2017-03-21]

SDK_2._FRDM-KW41Z V2.2.0

 

Considering the emphasis placed on multi-protocol there seems to be little information on how to make this work?

 

kind regards

Liam
