Are you enabling the next generation smart home, designing a connected-car application, enabling smart automation in a factory or building the next smart wearable device? Then you’re not going to want to miss this online training experience. Join Alan Hawse (@askiotexpert) and Michi Yoneda from Cypress as they walk you through a technical discussion and a series of hands-on lessons all focused on enabling you to create next generation, low-power BLE solutions for the IoT.
In part one of this two part series, Alan Hawse (@askiotexpert) will lead a technical discussion detailing how you can use a new solution from Cypress, the purpose-built for the IoT PSoC 6 MCUs with BLE connectivity, to develop next-generation IoT applications. Application best practices, designing for low power systems, the basics of and how to add BLE connectivity and an introduction to IoT security concepts will be covered. An introduction to the design tools and recommendations on getting started (and prepared for the next part in the series) will also be discussed.
In part two of this two part series, Alan Hawse (@askiotexpert) will team up with Michi Yoneda to deliver a hands-on teaching experience where all participants that attend with a PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-BLE) will be able to follow along, step-by-step, in building an IoT application. You’ll learn about the PSoC Creator IDE, RTOS designs, the dual-core architecture in PSoC 6 and how to develop dual-core applications, testing and developing BLE connectivity and much more.
At the end of this two part series, you will be able to:
- Understand the architectural trade-offs between application processors and traditional microcontrollers for IoT applications
- Understand best practices and needs in today’s and tomorrow’s IoT applications
- Develop next-generation IoT applications with Cypress’ PSoC 6 MCUs with BLE connectivity
- Add CapSense capacitive-sensing to your next IoT application
- And more…
