2,4 GHz solution for embedded control
26 November 2008, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Cypress Semiconductor has introduced a complete 2,4 GHz solution for the embedded market. The new CyFi low-power RF solution delivers a combination of reliable connectivity, power-efficiency and long range, and is supported by the flexible PSoC programmable system-on-chip.

The solution is optimised 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.

Cypress also rolled out a PSoC FirstTouch starter kit to evaluate the quick prototyping and debugging of wireless systems based on the CyFi solution.

The solution consists of the CyFi protocol stack in PSoC Designer embedded design software, the selected PSoC device, and the CyFi transceiver. The solution’s interference immunity is a result of its direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) modulation and the agility to move to 80 channels in the

2,4 GHz band. It intelligently manages DSSS, data-rate and agility to minimise retransmissions, maximising time in sleep mode for increased power efficiency.

The CyFi protocol stack offers a pre-configured, customisable PSoC firmware module that can be dropped into the PSoC Designer 5.0 integrated development environment (IDE) with no complex coding.

The starter kit is a low-cost USB ‘thumb-drive’ 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.
