PSoC 6 MCU

New Contributor II

Hello, I have started a project to connect 16 PSoC 6 via bluetooth. As I have to span an area of about 400m I am wondering about the range this BLE 4.2 Implementation supports. Also, I have bought a Dev Kit and just ordered a range extender eval kit as well (CYBLE-224110-EVAL). Can I connect this to the 062-BLE, and how ? If not, I need to cancel the order.

Thank you for any help on this

The CYBLE-224110-EVAL is not a range extender, it's a PSoC 4 BLE device of it's own with a dedicated, internal, power amplifier to increase its range.

You can connect it to the 062-BLE device via e.g. I2C, SPI, UART but they are otherwise independent devices and the BLE stack would still run on the CYBLE-224110 modules, not on the PSoC 6. You could then in theory program the CYBLE-224110 as a "modem" for the PSoC 6.

That said, unless you want to use a particular feature of the PSoC 6 I don't really see much point in such a configuration.

It is sold as a range extender anyway for the dev kit 042-BLE. CYBLE-224110-EVAL EZ-BLE™ PSoC XT/XR Evaluation Board | Cypress Semiconductor

I usually develop pointless stuff - never mind . However, here I seriously need to extend the range of the 062-BLE Dev Kit. I just wondered if it will connect as simply to the new BLE Dev Kit as it does with the 042-BLE.
