Human interface devices (HID) are products that are used for human-PC interactions like mice, keyboards & presenters. HID devices are increasingly converting from wired to wireless. Wireless HID products offer extensive mobility & range without the hassle of connection wires (USB, PS/2, etc). They also free up USB ports as multiple wireless devices can connect to single dongle; thus using only 1 USB port in contrast to 1 each for every wired device.
Even with all the additional benefits, wireless HID products have to be cost competitive with wired ones. This makes the cost of solution a very important factor. Also, features like multi-year battery life, low battery indication & superior inference immunity are becoming standard features on the products; and these must be supported without increasing solution cost.
To serve the current & future needs of the market, Cypress has a strong portfolio of HID solutions. The portfolio consists of HID optimized MCU & radio products. The solutions offer a battery life of up to 3 years and reduction in BOM cost by supporting bare die on PCB (chip-on-board). The solution is complemented by the mature & field proven AgileHID® protocol that ensures best in class interference immunity.
