Hello all.

Anyone has experience with this chip?

I have problems using WiFi and Bluetooth at the same time.
I know the WiFi and BT use the same antenna.
When BT is enable the WiFi connection becomes very unstable, if BT is disable the WIFI connection works very well.
I need BT and WiFi enable at the same time because all setup of the device is made for IOs and Android AP using BT, during this process i need config the WiFi Connection and test if the password and SSID is ok.

Thanks for any help.

Pedro.

I have never tried, but I supposed  having two RF systems with the same frequency so close together should generate a lot of interference between the two.

You're not the only one having that problem. It's likely a hardware issue; you may need to find another way of doing it.

Bigtoy,

I was trying everything to put the BT and WiFi to work together at the same time.
I figured it would be some hardware problem, but the support of the Espressif is not very good and they don't assume this.

Thanks for the link.

5.3. Coexistence

5.3.1. How do ESP32 Bluetooth dual modes coexist? And how to use dual-mode
Bluetooth?

ESP32 BT&BLE dual-mode Bluetooth is very easy to use. It does not require any special
configuration or calling functions. As a developer, all you have to know is (1) BLE calls the
BLE APIs, and (2) Classic Bluetooth calls the Classic Bluetooth APIs. For details, please
refer to ESP32 BT&BLE Dual-mode Bluetooth.

5.3.2. How do ESP32 Bluetooth and Wi-Fi coexist?

In the menuconfig menu, there is a special option called “Software controls WiFi/
Bluetooth coexistence”, which is used to control the ESP32's Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
coexistence using software, thus balancing the coexistence requirement for controlling the
RF module by both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules. Please note that if Option “Software
controls WiFi/Bluetooth coexistence” is enabled, the BLE scan interval shall not exceed
0x100 slots (about 160 ms).

• If only the BLE and Wi-Fi coexistence is required, this option can be enabled or
disabled. However, if this option is not enabled, please note that the “BLE scan
interval - BLE scan window” should be larger than 150 ms, and the BLE scan interval
should be less than 500 ms.
• If the Classic Bluetooth and Wi-Fi coexistence is required, it is recommended that you
enable this option.

In ESP-IDF V3.0 and earlier versions, the performance of Classic Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
coexistence might be poor at times. However, in ESP-IDF V3.1 and later versions, we has
solved this issue. At the moment, ESP32 can simultaneously function as a Wi-Fi module
and as a Bluetooth speaker, playing music smoothly.

According to this information, you should check ESP-IDF version to be V3.1 or later. If it's lower, then better to give up or upgrade.

The problem is that they share a radio; in other words, while the ESP32 is sending/receiving a BT packet, it cannot listen or send a WiFi packet. It's like trying to keep up with talkshows on an old FM radio: you're switching back and forth a lot, and you can usually keep up with both because of some redundancy in the sentences used, but if they talk too fast you're going to loose track.

This is obvious . Two task share reprogramming 1 hw structure.... The solution is easy, calm down and write your own protocol . It can be done.
