Developers are tapping Cypress's Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth Low Energy) wireless technology and robust software stack to build and create a highly interoperable ecosystem of smartwatches, fitness bands, biometric monitors and other wearable devices that are securely feeding a growing market of self-health, monitoring and diagnostic applications.

Putting the “smart” in smarthome, Cypress's WICED™ platform enables rapid development of applications that bring simplified, wireless access with compelling value to appliances, lighting, thermostats, home security systems and other touchpoints that have yet to be imagined.

Developers are using the WICED™ platform to fine-tune connected audio experiences, whether it's synchronized wireless speakers throughout the home or music on-the-go from a wireless headset or portable speaker with Apple AirPlay or Google Cast.

Bluetooth tags can be lifesavers, helping track down lost keys and phones. But Bluetooth technology is also part of the rapidly rising use of beacons by retailers to successfully drive big data for in-store customer analysis with real-time, customized promotions and discounts.

Bluetooth connectivity for hands free sparked a revolution of in-car infotainment and telematics that includes wide ranges of applications that connect our mobile lives and bring a living room experience to the car that increases comfort, personalization and safety, including hands-free calling, music streaming, passenger health monitoring and basic service and performance metrics.

As the Internet of Things expands into the industrial arena, wireless devices can help improve the efficiency of control systems and provide tracking of key assets. Companies can use sensor and M2M big data to drastically reduce production time, energy usage and variable costs using the information created by smart meters remote diagnostics, and environmental sensors.

From blood glucose monitors to wireless pill boxes to patient monitoring systems, doctors and hospitals are enhancing the level of patient care by tapping into the ubiquity and speed of wireless devices.

With IoT products ranging from air conditioners to connected toothbrushes, it’s clear to see that the Internet of Things isn’t easily defined by traditional product categories. With the integration of networking and server-based processing technology that allows the imagination to become reality, the Internet of Things is a market where the new business possibilities are limitless.




Cypress and its WICED™ developer communities, including the industry-leading partners listed above, are supporting the development of IoT devices from conception to production by providing forums, development kits and other information for customers, partners, programmers and other interested parties.
