Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE:CY) announced a free, online seminar that examines the challenges of designing a reliable embedded wireless system and presents a new solution to simplify the design process. The 60-minute webcast entitled “Reliable Wireless Sense and Control Made Easy” will be presented in conjunction with EDN.com on Wednesday, December 3 at 9:00 a.m. PST.
Reliability and power efficiency are major concerns when creating a wireless system. The webcast will present the challenges of embedded wireless design, ways these challenges can be addressed, and walk-through the development of an ultra-reliable, low-power wireless implementation using Cypress’s new CyFi[tm] Low-Power RF solution and the CY3271 PSoC FirstTouch[tm] Starter Kit. Interested parties can get more information and register at www.cypress.com/go/PR/CyFiwebcast.
“This webcast will show system designers what to consider when selecting a Low-Power RF technology,” said Geoff Charubin, vice president for Global Marketing at Cypress. “Viewers will also learn how to quickly and easily design wireless sense and control applications that are reliable and power-efficient using Cypress’s CyFi solution.”
The CyFi Low-Power RF solution enables designers to quickly and simply implement wireless systems without compromising reliable performance, or low-power consumption. The solution consists of the CyFi protocol stack in PSoC Designer[tm] embedded design software, the selected PSoC® programmable system-on-chip, and the CyFi transceiver. The solution’s unrivaled interference immunity is a result of its modulation and the agility to move to 80 channels in the 2.4-GHz band. It is optimized for low-power wireless sensor networks and human-to-machine interfaces in a broad range of applications, including home and building automation, remote controls, health and fitness equipment, and industrial monitoring.
The CY3271 PSoC FirstTouch Starter Kit with CyFi Low-Power RF is a low-cost USB thumbdrive kit including PSoC IDE software, a sense and control dashboard for data collection, a PC dongle with RF, a multifunction board, an RF expansion board with power amplifiers for long-range wireless applications, and two battery boards. Designers can also use the kit to leverage the touch-sensing, temperature-sensing, lighting-sensing and proximity sensing capabilities of PSoC devices.
