Can someone tell what is the different between PSoC4xx7-BLE and CYBL10x6x?
The PRoC is missing some components (e.g. OpAmps, UDBs). Its tailored for more specialized functionalities.
It looks like in different way to discript the same chip.
What is the purpose to develop two BLE chips? Different application? But it looks same!
As hli stated: The chips are NOT the same. The PSoC4 chip carries the original architecture expanded with BLE, while the other chip is reduced in hardware, most difference is No (0) UDBs
They are as similar as lets say 40xx and a 42xx PSoC. Yes, they share the same basic architecture and the BLE function. But the PRoC is less capable, and can so be manufactured cheaper (it should be below 2$ in volume). So the target market is more specialized devices that don't need to full PSoC functionality, but are manufactured in high volume.
The basic difference is that the PROC (CYBL01xxx) devices don't have the UDBs. Probably cheaper and used where UDB flexibility is not needed or to upgrade existing designs to BLE.
Thanks a lot. Now I know what chip I shall take.
I have to say that the kit is a bargain. You get a lot for the money. The CYBL10x6x seems to be mainly for use as a peripheral and the PSoC4xx7-BLE as a stand alone MC. I can only seem to get about 10 meters of range and even at that there is some errors. Chip antennas perhaps is the problem. Need to get some bare samples to play with and a wire antenna to find the true range.
It is a low energy radio and does have considerable battery life. SO if you want a class 1 device, this is not it. but if you want a local device, it is a great deal.
