Similarly to the question on the Hardware capability to perform Simultaneous Client P2P (https://developer.qualcomm.com/forum/qdn-forums/hardware/qca9377/34829), is it possible to perform both a client (managed) attachement to an Access Point while simultaneously presenting an Access Point (STA) as well?  Thanks for the info.

This forum is for QCA9377 and questions are welcome only on the same platform.

We encourage you to check such details with your software provider/module vendor.
This is a quick info though, so let me help you:

Once driver is loaded, you should see wlan0 interface created. You should be able to use it as STA.

Execute the command "iw dev wlan0 interface add softap0 type __ap"  to add  interface softap0. This one you can use with hostapd to bringup AP interface.
