How do I make the chip connectable but not discoverable ?

I highly doubt that you can do this.

To be able to connect to a BLE peripheral it has to advertise its presence and thus has to be discoverable. Otherwise a BLE central would not know how to connect to the peripheral.

You can do the other way round: making a peripheral being discoverable but not connectable (typical example for this is an iBeacon peripheral).

Lets say the central knows the BD_ARRD of the peripheral and was perviously connected to it.

Now you just want to connect back without making the peripheral announcing its present.

I know for sure that its possible with the BT classic.
