Unified software suite for IoT designs
13 June 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless

Cypress Semiconductor has announced a unified software tool suite that streamlines product designs for the Internet of Things (IoT). The new ModusToolbox suite delivers the rich design resources of Cypress’ WICED IoT connectivity libraries and the analog and digital peripherals libraries of its PSoC microcontrollers (MCUs) within the familiar, widely-deployed open-source Eclipse integrated design environments (IDEs).

The software enables IoT developers to design in the connectivity, processing, sensing and security functionality they need, leveraging the performance of Cypress’ Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and combo solutions, as well as its low-power, flexible and secure PSoC MCUs. Developers can personalise their user experience in the software to meet the unique requirements of their specific development with plug-ins, libraries and solutions from Cypress, partners, as well as from the open source community.

WICED (Wireless Internet Connectivity for Embedded Devices) is an integrated and interoperable wireless software development kit (SDK) supported in ModusToolbox. The SDK includes broadly deployed and rigorously tested Wi-Fi and Bluetooth protocol stacks, as well as simplified application programming interfaces (APIs) that free developers from needing to learn complex wireless technologies.

In line with the IoT trend toward dual-mode connectivity, the WICED SDK supports Cypress’ Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo solutions and its Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices. Cypress’ wireless connectivity solutions integrate an advanced coexistence engine that enables optimal combined performance for dual-band 2.4- and 5-GHz Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth/BLE 5.0 applications simultaneously. ModusToolbox enhances the WICED design flow with the latest Eclipse IDE features and makes it easy for other environments to incorporate designs.

Cypress’ new PSoC 6 Wi-Fi Pioneer Kit works with ModusToolbox’s unified design flow to improve design cycle times for IoT device applications. The kit features a PSoC 62 MCU and a module based on the CYW4343W Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo chip.
