Workshop Overview:

PSoC® 4 BLE is an easy-to-use, ARM® Cortex™-M0 based, single-chip solution which integrates programmable analog front ends, programmable digital peripherals, CapSense® technology for touch-sensing, and a Bluetooth 4.2 LE (Low Energy) or Bluetooth Smart radio.

PRoC® BLE is an easy-to-use, ARM Cortex-M0 based, single-chip solution which integrates a Bluetooth 4.2 LE radio and Cypress’s CapSense technology for touch-sensing.

Cypress's Solar-Powered IoT Device Kit provides a complete, easy-to-use platform that can be used to design a solar-powered IoT Device with Bluetooth LE. The Energy Harvesting System (EHS) uses Cypress's new S6SE101A Energy Harvesting PMIC optimized for solar energy, and BLE connectivity is provided by Cypress's EZ-BLE PRoC Module. Firmware and application software to implement a Wireless Sensor Node (WSN) that transmits sensor data as a BLE Beacon is also included.

By the end of this workshop, you will:

Understand Cypress's BLE one-chip solutions including PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE
Understand the BLE architecture
Learn how to use Cypress's BLE solutions and PSoC Creator to implement:

  • Understand Cypress’s BLE solutions
  • Learn how to use Cypress’s BLE solutions and PSoC Creator to implement:
    • Over-the-air (OTA) Firmware Upgrade
    • New Bluetooth 4.2 Features
    • Multi-Role BLE Design

Become familiar with Cypress’s Solar-Powered IoT Device Kit
Understand the architecture of a solar-powered Wireless Sensor Node (WSN)
Understand the architecture of an Energy Harvesting System (EHS)
Learn how to develop a solar-powered WSN with EHS by understanding:

  • How to measure the power delivered by an EHS
  • How to select EHS components
  • How to calculate the power required for the EHS Load
  • How to design and optimize an EHS

Create a Network of IoT Devices
