Cypress Extends Bluetooth Low Energy Portfolio for Banking, Industrial and Lighting Applications
Cypress also offers solutions with an extended industrial temperature range option with operation from -40 degrees C to +105 degrees C. This ensures consistent product performance throughout this temperature range for industrial, automotive and lighting applications that must operate in extreme climates. Both the micro-ball CSP package and extended industrial temperature options will be available for the 128KB and 256KB flash versions of the PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE solutions. The new offerings are pin-to-pin compatible with Cypress's original Bluetooth Low Energy solutions, simplifying upgrades.
"Bluetooth Low Energy is quickly expanding its market reach and Cypress is continually innovating to address requirements for a diverse set of emerging applications," said
Cypress's customizable Bluetooth Low Energy solutions deliver unprecedented ease-of-use and integration for IoT applications, home automation, wireless Human Interface Devices (HIDs), remote controls, healthcare equipment, sports and fitness monitors, and other wearable smart devices. PRoC BLE is a Bluetooth Smart microcontroller with Cypress's industry-leading CapSense® capacitive touch-sensing functionality, while PSoC 4 BLE offers expanded design versatility by adding intelligent analog and programmable digital blocks. Both solutions integrate a Bluetooth Smart radio, a high-performance 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0 core with ultra-low-power modes, up to 256KB flash memory, 36 GPIOs, and customizable serial communication blocks, timers and counters. Additionally, both solutions have an on-chip balun that simplifies antenna design while reducing board size and system cost.
Additionally, Cypress offers the small-form-factor, Bluetooth Smart, EZ-BLE™ PRoC module, which integrates PRoC BLE, two crystals, an on-board chip antenna, metal shield and passive components, all in a compact 10-mm x 10-mm x 1.8-mm form factor. It includes Bluetooth 4.1 qualification and worldwide regulatory certification, greatly simplifying design and cutting time to market. Cypress is the single supplier for silicon, software, firmware and module hardware, streamlining the customer support required to develop remote controls, health and fitness equipment, home appliances, toys and other wireless applications. This combination of technology delivers unmatched system value for Bluetooth Smart products, with prolonged battery life, customizable sensing capabilities, and sleek, intuitive user interfaces.
Bluetooth Low Energy Design Tools
Designers looking to create Bluetooth Smart products must often use software tools from multiple vendors and develop complex firmware to meet wireless specifications. Cypress has abstracted the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol stack and profile configuration into a royalty-free, GUI-based BLE component that can be dragged and dropped into designs using Cypress's PSoC Creator™ integrated design environment (IDE). PSoC Creator enables complete system design in a single tool, slashing time-to-market. Alternatively, users of Eclipse® and other ARM-based tools can customize their own Bluetooth Low Energy solutions on PSoC Creator and export the design to their preferred IDE.
Cypress offers the
The 128KB flash versions of the new PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE solutions are sampling now. Samples can be obtained by contacting Cypress sales or via Cypress's franchised distributors. PSoC 4 BLE datasheets and PRoC BLE datasheets are available for download online (with MPN details available in the ordering information section in the datasheets).
