Designers looking to create Bluetooth Smart products must use software tools from multiple vendors and develop complex firmware to meet wireless specifications. Cypress has simplified the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol stack and profile configuration into a royalty-free, GUI-based BLE Component, a free embedded IC within PSoC represented by an icon, which can be dragged and dropped into designs using Cypress' PSoC Creator IDE. PSoC Creator enables complete system design in a single tool, slashing time-to-market. Alternatively, users of Eclipse and other ARM-based tools can customise their own BLE solutions on PSoC Creator and export the design to their preferred IDE, the company indicated.

Application details for Cypress' BLE Component are embedded in PSoC Creator with examples of all supported BLE profiles and hundreds of example projects for mixed-signal system designs. Cypress provides additional design support with multiple development kits and with FCC-certified BLE modules. The $49 CY8CKIT-042-BLE development kit gives users easy access to the Cypress BLE devices, while maintaining the design footprint from the PSoC 4 Pioneer kit. The development kit includes a USB BLE dongle that pairs with the CySmart master emulation tool, converting a designer's Windows PC into a BLE debug environment.
