Bluetooth Mesh FAQ

I collected all the questions that you asked us at Alan's video workshop the other day, made sure the answers made sense, reordered them into a somewhat sensible arrangement, and put them into an FAQ. It is attached, below, in the downloadable file "Bluetooth Mesh Video Workshop FAQ.pdf". Hope you find it useful!

Second Chance to Watch Alan Hawse' Bluetooth Mesh Virtual Workshop

We had a really successful workshop on Wednesday this week. Plenty of people attended and Alan kept them all engaged with his knowledge, humor, and famous dancing skills. He programmed a bunch of Cypress CYBT-213043-MESH kits to be lights and switches, created networks and rooms (aka groups), then controlled LEDs via buttons on the (switch) kit

Free Virtual Workshop - How to Design with Bluetooth Mesh

I am setting off to a local studio today to dry-run a new video workshop with our resident IoT expert, Alan Hawse. The event is going to be hosted by Electronic Design and is co-sponsored by

Back on the blog - Configuring PSoC PWMs

Back in February I committed to write about peripheral setup using the ModusToolbox device configurator tool. I have not done very well! We have had another release since then - ModusToolbox 1.1 - and I have been buried in planning for the 2.0 release and training our internal teams. But that is real work and I've had enough of it. It's time to

Looking for Python on PSoC? Take a look at Zerynth

I wrote about Zerynth just after the Embedded World show, where they gave a great demo of their Python virtual machine running an

Cypress, RS Components and Zerynth bring Python programming to IoT

Here's another tidbit from the Embedded World show. Zerynth have ported their Virtual Machine to PSoC 6 and it opens the world of IoT to millions of Python programmers. And we are not talking about a watered-down

Where does ModusToolbox put that generated code?

Last time I blogged (is that really a word? what a strange world this is) I wrote about the ModusToolbox device configurator. We set up a pair of pins, one called "LED" and the other "SW" (because, it turns out that I am too lazy to write "Switch" or "Button"). Anyway, I mentioned that the configurator generates the setup code for the pins and

Customizing your PSoC configuration (buttons and LEDs)

I have recently shown you two of the most helpful starter templates in ModusToolbox - PioneerKitApp and PioneerKitAppFreeRTOS. Just as an FYI, if you have the PSoC 6 prototyping kit instead, there are equivalent templates for that kit called ProtoKitApp and ProtoKitAppFreeRTOS. All of these templates set up some kit basics for you so that you

FreeRTOS - the stack is in words!!!!

No fibbing here... last night I woke up around 4am thinking "they're words"!!!!! As in 32-bit words, not 8-bit bytes. Yesterday I wrote about increasing the FreeRTOS stack size "for the OS to do anything interesting". It turns out that the 1kB stacks I was using were actually 4kB. And the original 16kB allocation of SRAM to FreeRTOS is actually
