AN91184 - PSoC 4-BLE - Designing Bluetooth Low Energy Applications

Last Updated: 
Dec 08, 2020

AN91184 shows how to design a Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) application based on PSoC 4 BLE, using standard profiles defined by the Bluetooth SIG that are included in the BLE Component in PSoC Creator. It demonstrates how to build an application with the BLE Health Thermometer Profile on the CY8CKIT-042-BLE kit. This application note also applies to the PRoC BLE part.


Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is an ultra-low-power wireless standard introduced by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) for short-range communication. The BLE physical layer, protocol stack, and profile architecture are designed and optimized to minimize power consumption. Similar to Classic Bluetooth, BLE operates in the 2.4-GHz ISM band but with a lower bandwidth of 1 Mbps.
