BLE & Bluetooth

Cypress's WICED Studio Bluetooth portfolio consists of dual-mode Bluetooth solution that supports Bluetooth Classic i.e. Basic Rate (BR) and Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) as well as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Cypress's Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) portfolio consists of WICED™ SMART and PSoC® 4 BLE System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions and System-in-Package (SiP) modules. These are single-mode i.e. Bluetooth Low Energy-only solutions. The Cypress Bluetooth portfolio includes Bluetooth 4.2 core specification-compliant, BR + EDR + BLE solutions that integrate Bluetooth standard profiles and protocols for embedded applications.
