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® 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 LE radio and Cypress’s CapSense technology for touch-sensing.


Workshop Objectives:

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 development environment to implement:
    • - BLE connections with PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE
    • - One-chip, sensor-based, system designs with BLE connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT)
    • - One-chip, CapSense® touch-sensing user interface designs with BLE connectivity
    • - Learn how to design a solar-powered Beacon with temperature sensor
