 May i know what are the advantages of implementing Wireless sensor network in PSoC than in implementing using Berkeley Mica motes............

The mica motes have a tiny OS associated with their implementation.

 

PSOC 3/5, as the base processor, has substantially more analog capability

than Atmel used in mica motes, so that makes design more efficient. Creator

tool, with almost all basic APIs for its hardware prewritten for you to use as

simple calls, does mica motes offer that level of support ? Also PSOC 3/5

onboard dual channel digital filter for general use in background via DMA

interface. And for custom hardware Verilog solutions can be used in PSOC,

because it has routable interface and logic capability.

 

Cypress has PHYs for RF wireless, see http://www.cypress.com/?id=1929

Take a look at these videos, you will quickly get insight into PSOC 3/5's capabilities -

...and Cypress has a wireless network protocoll you may easily use that will connect and manage your wireless devices from a PC. There are (or were?) a couple of small developement kits (environment) to easily get started. They were running from batt power and contained PSoC1 as the heart controling the sensors (Temp, humidity, light) and transmitting over RF to the PC. Very handy!

Hi Naru, look here http://www.cypress.com/?rID=151

and here http://www.cypress.com/?rID=34917 , but I do not know whether they are still available.

 

Try to search in the upper right-hand corner of this website the "Keyword search" with "Environmental" or  "wireless network". there are some more artikles about.

You can see many updates are current for dev boards, etc...

 

Wireless a very active product at Cypress.

 Can i use CYFI Low power RF module (CYRF7936)  with CY8CKIT-001 development to implement wireless sensor network.......

Looks like main support has been PSOC 1, but no reason you could not port to PSOC 3/5.
