This Knowledge Base Article (KBA) aims to act as a “master” KBA which keeps a curated index of all the Bluetooth related KBAs divided into logical categories for an easier and more convenient look-up. It may also include non-KBA content which is relevant for designing your Bluetooth application (e.g. app notes or web pages).
If you are just getting started with Silicon Labs Bluetooth solutions then your starting point should be QSG139: Getting Started with Bluetooth® Software Development. At the end of that document you are presented with the flowchart below which shows what documents should be read and in which order. Additionally you can check out our Bluetooth Training page for more training material.
The content listed below is grouped together into categories to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for. Want to know more about security, or looking for a peripheral example, then head down to the right section and see what KBAs or other relevant content has been created under those topics.
Each category has an associated index number and each individual KBA has its own index number within the category. The KBA's are prefixed with KBA_BT_AABB where AA is the category index and BB is the KBA index within that category. The category index numbers are as follows:

This KBA List is not really a good place to ask those questions as it won't give that much visibility to the wider community. Would you mind just creating a new post on the community with those questions?
Hi Tiago, Thanks for your message. I will post to the community forum. I did try to find the answers to my questions in the KBA documents, and in searches of the forum and other help files. Except for UG103.14, I couldn't find any additional info for such a critical feature of BLE. There is currently no way to know from documentation how long my app can run without causing a BLE link to fail.
I recommend adding enough info to the KBA documents so customers can know how long their apps can run without causing the BLE link to fail.
