In today's exanmple project, we demonstrate how to implement an accelerometer controlled car. In this example, a PSoC 4 BLE device, configured as the GATT Server, measures the accelerometer X, Y and Z axis data using the SAR ADC and translates them into a corresponding gesture. Based on the detected gesture, the BLE GATT Server sends one of...

In today's project, we demonstrate how to configure the BLE component as a Cycling Sensor. To demonstrate the Cycling Sensor functionality, in this project the BLE component implements a standard Cycling Power Profile (CPP) operating in the Cycling Power Sensor and Broadcaster role and also implements a standard Cycling Speed and Cadence...

In today's project, we demonstrate how to implement PSoC 4 BLE as a Heart Rate Collector. In this project, the BLE device acts as a GAP Central and communicates with a GAP Peripheral, i.e. a Heart Rate Sensor and gets the heart rate information once connection is established.  This project works in pair with BLE heart rate sensor project (...

In today's project, we demonstrate a BLE controlled RGB LED Flood Light. In this example, an RGB LED Flood Light with an inbuilt IR receiver is retro-fitted with the BLE module to control the color and intensity using the BLE protocol. For the BLE control, the existing IR Receiver is replaced with the PSoC 4 BLE module...

BLE Protocol, by design, needs accurate clocks for its operation. To meet the clock accuracy, external crystal oscillators are required in the design. These oscillators do have a finite start-up time, which is inversely proportional to the clock frequency at which the crystal operates. In today's project, we demonstrate how to reduce the start...

Until now, we were discussing various features or some usages of the BLE protocol. Today we change our focus, from the features of BLE protocol to an end-system application. In today's project, we demonstrate how to use the PSoC 4 BLE device for implementing a BLE Billboard. In this example, the PSoC 4 BLE device gets the information from a...

When thinking of controlling critical devices such as security locks etc. via BLE, a user always comes to the delima, "Is BLE the correct protocol for me?", what if somebody sniffs the packet transferred over BLE and gets an access to all the information.     To address such concerns, BLE protocol provides various levels of security...
