TI-Nspire & BLE / Tiny BLE-Connection-Listener / SensorTag

Tiny BLE-Connection-Listener


The connection flow is as follows:

  1. The ble.addStateListener() function registers a listener-callback.
  2. The bleCentral.startScanning() function gets a scanner-callback to scan peripherals.
  3. The connect() function gets a connector-callback to connect a found peripheral.
