Warren (New Jersey, US) and Bangalore (India), February 21 2015: A new low energy Bluetooth system-on-a-chip launched by US-based semiconductor company Cypress uses intellectual property from Indian technology products and services player, Mindtree.
Mindtree’s Bluetooth Smart link layer, stack and profile components, were combined with technology components from Cypress, to deliver a highly integrated range of single-chip Bluetooth Smart solutions. These solutions have simplified the design of low-power, sensor-based systems for the Internet of Things (IoT) market, as well as for traditional markets such as human interface devices, remote controls and toys.| The Mindtree IP has been incorporated into the new Cypress PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE system-on-chip products.
Cypress Bluetooth Low Energy solutions enable complete systems by integrating a Bluetooth Smart radio, a high-performance 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 core with ultra-low-power modes, programmable analog blocks, and Cypress's industry-leading CapSense® capacitive touch-sensing functionality. This combination of technology delivers unmatched system value for Bluetooth Smart products, with prolonged battery life, customizable sensing capabilities, and sleek, intuitive user interfaces.
Says Jayanth Krishna, Director, Short-range Wireless, Mindtree: “Product and device companies need chips that are highly programmable with built-in Bluetooth wireless to build high quality products quickly. It’s increasingly important that new products have connectivity built into their core technology to keep pace with the rapidly diversifying wearable and IoT markets. Mindtree’s market proven and highly configurable IPs seamlessly enables such rapid development.”
Adds Jayant Somani, Senior Director of Bluetooth Low Energy products at Cypress:“Adding Mindtree’s low power Bluetooth IP to Cypress’s PSoC and PRoC products and our CapSense touch-sensing technology has allowed us to create unique single-chip solutions that are tailor-made for Internet of Things applications and other sensor-based systems. PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE are easy to use and have achieved Bluetooth 4.1 qualification with Mindtree’s underlying IP, cutting design time for our customers and allowing them to go to market quickly.”
