Programmable Bluetooth module aids medical applications

The CYBLE-022001-00 EZ-BLE PRoC Module from Cypress Semiconductor is now in stock at distributor Mouser Electronics. The programmable, SMT-ready, fully certified Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) module eliminates RF hardware design and reduces investment by eliminating the certification process. The integration and small footprint of the CYBLE-022001-00 make it ideal for medical, home entertainment, and computing applications.

The Programmable Radio-on-Chip (PRoC) module is a 48 MHz 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 solution with 128 KBytes of flash, 16 KBytes of SRAM, and a 12-bit analogue-to-digital converter (ADC). It features two integrated crystals, an onboard chip antenna, and a programmable architecture that supports a number of peripheral functions (such as ADC, timers, counters, and PWM) and serial communication protocols (including I2C, UART, and SPI).

The 10mm × 10mm × 1.8mm module provides up to 16 GPIOs, configurable as open drain high/low, pull-up/pull-down, Hi-Z, or strong output. The module also includes Cypress’s CapSense capacitive touch-sensing technology and is supported by PSoC Creator integrated development environment.

The module includes a royalty-free stack compatible with Bluetooth 4.1 specifications. Designers can use the EZ-BLE PRoC Evaluation Board for enhanced development and testing, including access to project examples to speed prototyping. The evaluation board can be used standalone with an external programmer like the CY8CKIT-002 MiniProg3 or plugged into the CY8CKIT-042-BLE Bluetooth Low Energy Pioneer Kit for easy prototyping.
