BLE v5 - Maximum data payload for Advertisements

Question asked by Ayturk Duzen on Apr 24, 2019

I have FRDM-KW36 board and using SDK_SDK_2.2_FRDM-KW36 (latest SDK to my knowledge).

By using the BLE, I would like to exchange data with advertisements (non-connectable). With the advertisement itself (31bytes) and with scan request/scan response (31bytes), I can achieve maximum of 62 bytes. What I am looking for is to increase the advertisement payload as specified in the BLE Core v5.0 specification. The payload for the advertisement OR the secondary advertising channels should be maximum 255 bytes but I could not find any information in the documentation of the SDK.


My question is: Is the latest SDK has implemented the BLE 5 new features regarding the advertisement max data payload? 


Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
