New PSoC and IoT Technical Training from Alan Hawse
Cypress teamed up with Mouser and ElectronicDesign this week to make a new technical training webinar called "Designing low-power, cloud-connected IoT devices with PSoC® 6 MCU’s and WICED® Wi-Fi/Bluetooth". Now by "teamed up" I really mean "ganged up and bullied Alan Hawse into flying across the country, from his beloved Kentucky, to record a 2 hour Alan-a-thon in San Francisco"! This one is really good and, as usual, it covers a tremendous number of subjects, gets into the real nitty-gritty details, and is centered around a realistic real-world example.
Well it's a game of PONG, controlled over Bluetooth LE from your phone or WiFi using Amazon Web Services (AWS). I told you it was realistic - WHO DOES NOT WANT A CLOUD- AND BLUETOOTH-CONTROLLED PONG CONSOLE? If you have a PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-WIFI-BT) then you really can follow Alan's lead and build the game with BOTH WiFi connectivity to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Bluetooth access from your mobile phone. If you do not have a kit... BUY ONE NOW!
This is a 2 hour investment that will make you smarter. Alan covers using the PSoC 6 ultra-low-power MCU, controlling the TFT display, using FreeRTOS to manage all the moving parts, configuring a Bluetooth peripheral, and how to be an AWS publisher and subscriber. Frankly, it's exhausting. So go watch it!
