PSoC Creator News
Mar 31, 2015

The ongoing blog series for 100 Projects in 100 Days with PSoC 4 BLE is now up to thirty (30) example projects.

Use these simple PSoC Creator projects to learn about Bluetooth Low Energy using the $49 BLE Pioneer Kit.

These projects cover basic BLE topics like GAP Roles, Profiles, security concepts, OTA firmware upgrades, power optimization, and more!

And remember, entries for the PSoC Pioneer Challenge are accepted through April 6th, 2015!

Did you know that every BLE Pioneer Kit has an onboard, 100-trillion read/write capable Cypress F-RAM device?

Cypress's Ferroelectric RAM (F-RAM) is a type of non-volatile memory that has three distinct advantages over traditional non-volatile memories: high speed, high endurance, and low energy consumption. These F-RAM devices communicate with the host controller over a serial interface (I2C in this case) that do not have any write delays such that the data is instantly nonvolatile. This is crucial for mission-criticial tasks such as BLE firmware upgrades via bootloading, where any interruption in power can typically be catastrophic to the system. The F-RAM devices also offer virtually unlimited endurance, as they are rated for 100 trillion read/writes when compared to traditional nonvolatlie memories, which is useful for storage of vital data in sensor-based applications. Most importantly, these F-RAM devices consume only 300-µA of active power and 6-µA of standby current, allowing for extermely low-power systems for your BLE products.

Learn how to use Cypress F-RAM with Bluetooth Low Energy products using these two PSoC Creator example projects for the BLE Pioneer Kit:

Project #025: OTA (Over-the-Air) Firmware Updates with F-RAM

Project #026: BLE Data Logging on F-RAM
