Key Features

Feature Creator-Based Modules Benefit WICED-Based Modules Benefit
BLE connectivity to any Bluetooth 4.0/4.1/4.2 device via serial interface (UART) and/or GPIO control

Compatible with existing BLE devices in the market

No RF design expertise or Bluetooth stack knowledge required

Enables fast and simple Serial-BLE solution

Removes programming step in manufacturing flow

CYSPP mode for transparent serial-to-BLE data transfer

Fast time-to-market

No IDE required for development

Out-of-the-box support for CYSPP mode with no special configuration

Wired (UART) and wireless (OTA) firmware updates

Stack and/or application upgrades on 256KB modules*

Never have an out-of-date EZ-Serial platform

Application upgrades available
Access to hardware features within the chipset Use EZ-BLE module hardware features without programming (e.g. ADC, PWM, AES)
Integrated iBeacon/Eddystone support Fast and simple beaconing solution compatible with iBeacon and Eddystone iBeacon and Eddystone not supported
Host control via text or binary API commands

Complex application logic possible on external MCU

Add BLE connectivity to existing MCU-based designs with minimal effort

* Device Firmware Upgrade support requires modules with 256KB of flash memory
