Version: **

 

Question: What is Cypress’s portfolio to support a Dongle design?

 

Answer:

Cypress provides a portfolio of low cost, low power, and high performance solutions for wireless dongles. The portfolio consists of HID optimized MCU and radio products. The solution is complemented by the mature and field proven AgileHID protocol that reduces design effort and ensures swift time to market.

There are two types of solutions available for a wireless dongle design:

  1.   2-chip solutions: separate MCU and RF ICs
  2.   Single-chip solution: combing RF and MCU in a single chip

The following table lists Cypress’s wireless dongle portfolio. Based on the required features of the solution, the relevant products can be chosen for the design.
