Raspberry Pi Selects Cypress' Wireless Connectivity Solution for Industry-Leading IoT Boards
More information on the Raspberry Pi Zero W and ordering information is available at www.raspberrypi.org/products/pi-zero-w, and more information on Cypress' 802.11n and Bluetooth combo solutions is available at www.cypress.com/802.11n-wifi-bt.
"With Cypress' combo solution on board, Raspberry Pi Zero W allows designers to connect to the most pervasive Wi-Fi networks for infrastructure connections and offers Bluetooth to connect to smartphones and other low-power smart devices," said
"Raspberry Pi has grown to become the industry's leading developer and maker platform for IoT applications, and we are pleased to have Cypress' wireless contribute to that success," said
The Raspberry Pi Zero W features a 1GHz, single-core CPU, 512MB RAM, Mini-HDMI and Micro-USB ports, composite video and reset headers and a CSI camera connector, along with 802.11n wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless connectivity.
Cypress' CYW43438 combo solution integrates IEEE 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in a single-chip solution to enable small-form-factor IoT designs. The solution provides up to 150 Mbps PHY data rates and coexistence management for advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming applications. The combo solution is supported on Cypress' Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices (WICED®) Software Development Kit (SDK), which provides code examples, tools and development support.
