CYBLE-222014-01 - Increases Security, Privacy & Data Rates with BT 4.2
Cypress Semiconductor’s easy-to-use PSoC® 4 BLE Programmable System-on-Chip and PRoC™ BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solutions are the world’s first to achieve full featured Bluetooth 4.2 qualification.
PRoC BLE is a low-power Bluetooth Smart microcontroller with industry-leading CapSense®capacitive touch-sensing functionality, while PSoC 4 BLE offers expanded design flexibility by adding intelligent analog and programmable digital blocks that enable simplified integration with sensors and actuators. Both solutions integrate a Bluetooth Smart radio, a high-performance 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0 core with ultra-low-power modes, 256KB flash memory, 32KB of SRAM, direct memory access (DMA) capability, 36 GPIOs, and customizable serial communication blocks, timers and counters.
Cypress has simplified the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol stack and profile configuration into a new royalty-free, GUI-based BLE Component—a free embedded IC within PSoC represented by an icon—that can be dragged and dropped into designs using Cypress’s PSoC Creator™ integrated design environment (IDE).
Features & Benefits
With the new enhanced features of Bluetooth 4.2 makes it an ideal solution for wireless Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as - multi-channel audio transmissions, fast Over-the-Air (OTA) Firmware Upgrades, privacy for medical and wearable devices, secure locks and secure payments.
