    BLE: MAC Address questions

    userc_22051

      Hello,

       

      My goal is to know if I can effectively identify a BLE advertiser from its MAC address. That would allow my central deivce to know what devices it sees without having to connect to it and ask for information (such as its serial number).

       

      Even though I can read the MAC addresses from the central device, their values are all the same! (i have several devices) The MAC address seems to be determined during the programming of my BCM20736 : if I compile & program the chip from another computer, the MAC address I see will be different.

       

      Can I have access to a truly unique number that is hard-coded into the BLE hardware and that is accessible from advertising packets?

       

      Cheers,

      Arthur
