AN96841 introduces you to Cypress’s EZ-BLE™ Creator family of Bluetooth Smart modules. EZ-BLE modules are fully qualified and certified Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solutions. EZ-BLE Modules provide a complete BLE solution, integrating a BLE radio system, two crystals, antenna, and passive components required for BLE operation. This application note helps you explore the EZ-BLE Module architecture and development tools and shows you how to create your first project with the EZ-BLE PRoC Module and PSoC Creator™, the development tool used for all EZ-BLE Modules. This application note also guides you to more resources to accelerate in-depth learning about the Cypress EZ-BLE solutions.

Introduction

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is an ultra-low-power wireless standard defined by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) for low-power, short-range communication. It features a physical layer, protocol stack, and profile architecture, all designed and optimized for the lowest power consumption. BLE operates in the 2.4-GHz ISM band, with a data rate of 1 Mbps.
