The revision 4.0.2 SoftDevices include numerous functional enhancements for the ANT and BLE protocol stacks. An option to specify a channel offset when opening an ANT channel has been added to give developers better control of performance in multi-master applications. The option to use 3 byte CRC’s has been added to improve performance in noisy environments. Other ANT enhancements include channel optimizations that allow for faster channel periods and multi-channel performance. BLE now supports up to 20 links. Each can perform any role allowing for multiple peripherals on the same device. The ability to configure the ATT_MTU size on a per link basis is now supported.
