Arrow Electronics and Cypress join forces for ubiquitous IoT connectivity
Distributor, Arrow Electronics, and Cypress Semiconductor, have announced the Titanium board, a technology ecosystem designed to enable developers to create products using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), cellular and LPWAN technologies, using Cypress’ low-power edge computing capabilities.
The Titanium board is designed to the Linaro 96Boards IoT edition specification, and features Cypress’ PSoC 6 microcontroller (MCU) with dual-core processing and BLE 5.0. With power provided by the Cypress EZ-PD CCG3 USB-C controller, Titanium also provides developers with advanced sensing capabilities featuring Bosch Sensortec’s BME680 integrated environmental sensor to measure gas, humidity, temperature, and pressure. The platform is Arm mBed-compatible, and features a 40-pin expansion connector compatible with other 96board platforms.
Developers can take advantage of the expansion capability of the Titanium board to evaluate multiple connectivity and technology options, including the Cypress WICED mezzanine card currently in development.
The PSoC 6 MCU is a low-power, flexible MCU with built-in Bluetooth Low Energy wireless connectivity and integrated hardware-based security in a single device. The dual-core Arm Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M0+ MCU architecture lets designers optimise for power and performance simultaneously. The PSoC 6 MCU architecture’s software-defined peripherals enable engineers to create innovative products, including wearables, industrial IoT equipment, smart home appliances, IoT gateways, portable medical devices and audio processing products.
Arrow Electronics serves as a supply channel partner for more than 125,000 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), contract manufacturers and commercial customers through a global network of more than 465 locations serving over 90 countries.
Cypress provides advanced embedded system solutions for automotive, industrial, home automation and appliances, consumer electronics and medical products. Cypress’ programmable SoCs, general-purpose microcontrollers, analogue ICs, memories and wireless and USB-based connectivity products can differentiate products and accelerate time-to-market.
