I'm interested in developing a Bluetooth Low Energy enable BLDC motor controller that uses Sensorless Field Oriented Control to handle the motor speed. 

Researching different alternatives I found this Application Note for the  that implements the Sensorless FOC technique in a Cypress PSoC 4. 

Is that same application valid for the PSoC 4 BLE? Can I run those examples on a PSoC 4 BLE?

I know I can have a dedicated PSoC 4 do the motor control and use an external BLE module to handle the Bluetooth Low Energy communication, but it would be nice to use 1 IC to do both things. 

My main goal is configure a GATT server that with different characteristic of the motor control, and use another device (a Smartphone for example) to set the motor speed. 

Thank you very much beforehand.

Welcome in the forum, Rodrigo.

A PSoC4 BLE is a PSoC4 with an additional BLE radio, so it might be possible to have a BLDC implemented on such a chip. Take care to use a CY8C42xx chip because there are some more resources within.
