Cypress’s BLE Component (available as part of PSoC® Creator™) is regularly updated to include the GATT-based, BLE profiles and services adopted by the Bluetooth SIG. The table provided below documents the standard profiles and services supported in the BLE Component v3.0 (available as part of PSoC Creator 3.3 SP1).

The links are in table can be used to navigate to:

  • Overview - The overview of the profile or service on the Bluetooth SIG’s Developer Portal
  • PDF - The complete Bluetooth specification for the profile or service in pdf format
  • XML - The complete Bluetooth specification for the profile or service in xml format

Refer the BLE Component datasheet to use these standard profiles and services with Cypress BLE products.

Cypress has also defined custom BLE profiles and services to enable customers to send data over BLE for various features that are not supported by standard BLE profiles and services. Click here to learn more about Cypress’s custom profiles and services.

1ANCS is a custom service defined by Apple to give Bluetooth accessories (that connect to iOS devices through a Bluetooth low-energy link) a simple and convenient way to access notifications that are generated on iOS® devices.

2 Resource is currently not available on the Bluetooth SIG website.

3 WPT is a custom service defined by the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP). A4WP has been recognized as a Standards Development Organization (SDO) by the Bluetooth SIG and has been assigned a 16-bit Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) for the WPT service. Information about custom services created by SDOs can be found here.
