Keywords:Cypress Semiconductor? reference design kit? BLE? Bluetooth Smart?

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has unleashed a couple of reference design kits (RDKs) based on its PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution for Bluetooth Smart applications. The CY5672 PRoC BLE Remote Control RDK and CY5682 PRoC BLE Touch Mouse RDK promise to deliver feature-rich, production-ready implementations with extended battery life.

The kits leverage Cypress' single-chip PRoC BLE solution, which includes a Bluetooth Smart radio, a high-performance 32bit ARM Cortex-M0 core with ultra-low-power modes, and Cypress' CapSense capacitive touch-sensing and TrueTouch touchscreen functionality. Customers can develop and test their designs with Cypress' GUI-based PSoC Creator integrated design environment (IDE) and CySmart BLE emulation tool.

CY5672 PRoC BLE Remote Control RDK

The CY5672 PRoC BLE Remote Control RDK supports a 2in trackpad to detect touch gestures and integrates a microphone to capture and stream voice input for voice recognition applications. The reference design also integrates a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope for motion control applications.

CY5682 PRoC BLE Touch Mouse RDK

The feature-rich reference design provides more than one year of battery life and a range of more than 30 feet. The RDK reduces BOM costs by 40 per cent compared to competitive designs.

The CY5682 PRoC BLE Touch Mouse RDK is interoperable with all major operating systems, including Windows 8.1, MacOS, Android and Chrome. The reference design includes buttons which map to common user interface shortcuts for Windows 8 and 8.1, and it supports Microsoft touch gestures. The touch mouse provides more than one year of battery life, stated the company.

Cypress provides all the required firmware in PSoC Creator for development, manufacturing and certification tests with these reference designs. The kits also include a USB dongle to emulate a Bluetooth Low Energy host.

The CY5672 PRoC BLE Remote Control RDK and the CY5682 PRoC BLE Touch Mouse RDK are each available for $49.
