Workshop Overview:

PSoC® 4 Bluetooth Low Energy 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 4.2 LE (Low Energy) or Bluetooth Smart radio.

PRoC® Bluetooth Low Energy is an easy-to-use, ARM Cortex-M0 based, single-chip solution which integrates a Bluetooth 4.2 LE radio and Cypress’s CapSense technology for touch-sensing.

Cypress's Solar-Powered IoT Device Kit provides a complete, easy-to-use platform that can be used to design a solar-powered IoT Device with Bluetooth LE. The Energy Harvesting System (EHS) uses Cypress's new S6SE101A Energy Harvesting PMIC optimized for solar energy, and Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity is provided by Cypress's EZ-Bluetooth Low Energy PRoC Module. Firmware and application software to implement a Wireless Sensor Node (WSN) that transmits sensor data as a Bluetooth Low Energy Beacon is also included.

By the end of this workshop, you will:

Understand Cypress's Bluetooth Low Energy one-chip solutions including PSoC 4 Bluetooth Low Energy and PRoC Bluetooth Low Energy
