Bluetooth® LE SoC with fully integrated modules

Home automation and building automation is referred to as the smarthome and smart building segments. Smarthome/Smartbuilding systems provide monitoring and/or control home attributes such as lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances along with home security for access control and alarm systems. Infineon offers industry proven (over a Billion units shipped) to address this market segment.

The AIROC™ CYW20820 dual mode Bluetooth® SoC builds upon the market-proven AIROC™ Bluetooth® and Bluetooth® LE family of SoCs. CYW20820 enables flexible, low-power, and high-performance wireless connectivity for a variety of IoT applications. Infineon’s AIROC™ Bluetooth® solutions offer higher value because of their flexible low power modes, superior RF performance, efficient MIPs, and a comprehensive SDK with extensive code examples.

The CYW20820 SoC provides reliable Bluetooth® and Bluetooth® LE connectivity and is 5.2 core spec compliant. With an integrated Arm® Cortex®-M4 processor with a floating-point unit, the CYW20820 SoC offers high performance compute suitable for a variety of applications. The CYW20820 SoC is highly integrated with multiple serial interfaces, PWMs, and more. Moreover, it is compact with integrated flash and high Tx output power for better range.

The CYW20820 is designed to support a wide spectrum of Bluetooth® use cases including home automation, sensors (medical, home, security, and industrial), lighting, Bluetooth® Mesh, or any Bluetooth® connected IoT application.

The AIROC™ CYW20820 is supported in the ModusToolbox™ software, which is a modern, extensible development environment supporting a wide range of Infineon devices. This provides a unique work environment that is extremely adaptable to work the way you work. The development environment also facilitates portability via HAL APIs that work across supported MCUs.

Infineon provides in-house AIROC™ CYW20820 globally certified modules for rapid time to market. Infineon’s AIROC™ CYBT-243053-02, CYBT-253059-02, CYBT-243068-02 modules offer reliable compute in low power for Dual Mode Bluetooth® in IoT applications. A variety of module options are available to suit your development needs.

The module solutions offer higher value because of their flexible low power modes, superior RF performance, efficient MIPs, and a comprehensive SDK with extensive code examples. Integration of flash, analog and digital components allows easy external component interfacing for a reduced BOM and faster time to develop with external sensors. Infineon branded modules are certified with global regulatory bodies and are offered in multiple feature set types. These offer reduced development costs and faster time to market.

The AIROC™ CYW20820 is supported in the AIROC™ Bluetooth® SDK within ModusToolbox™ Software and Tools with copious code examples and documentation enablement for Bluetooth® LE data transfer, RFCOMM, Peripherals, and Bluetooth® Mesh use cases. This includes support and flexibility to develop your embedded code in a way that is suitable for you. ModusToolbox™ with the Bluetooth SDK forms a powerful but easy-to-use toolset that helps you to create compelling Bluetooth-enabled IoT solutions such as beacons, trackers, smart watches, audio devices, HID devices, medical devices and home automation platforms.

Infineon evaluation kits come with access to documentation and board support packages and provides an easy-to-use and inexpensive development platform to get started on your project.  The AIROC™ CYW20820 evaluation kit (CYW920820M2EVB-01) is now supported by the AIROC™ Bluetooth® SDK 3.3.

The Infineon community makes it easy to search, or to ask questions and find answers to solve your technical challenges. It provides an exceptional customer experience and make the development process fun and creative.
