PSoC 4

Hello

   

I have a CY8CKIT-042-BLE Pioneer Kit with BLE 4.1 modules (PSoC & PRoC). I'm wondering is it possible to get 4.2 BLE functionality using stack firmware updates or it requires a new hardware IC?

   

With best regards, Sergey

Sergey,

   

The new Bluetooth 4.2 Kits and PSoC Creator 3.3 Service Pack 1 where released in late January this year. 
It will work with any release after (PSoC Creator 3.3 Service Pack 1 ) for example as of today (PSoC Creator 3.3 CP2)

   

Since you already have a PSoC4-042 BLE DVK - you will need to update your modules.
* CY5676A: PRoC BLE development kit with Bluetooth 4.2 radio
* ​CY8CKIT-143A: PSoC 4 BLE development kit with Bluetooth 4.2 radio
* CY5677: BLE-USB bridge to test and debug designs using Bluetooth 4.2

Hello,

   

Why is it not possible to only update the BLE stack?  Is this the case with all modules and all new version of Bluetooth?

   

Thanks

Hello,

   

Does it mean that we have to change the hardware for each new version of Bluetooth?

   

Thanks

Hello Marc,

   

BLE 4.1 to 4.2 requires hardware changes also. The change is not just limited to the BLE Stack.

   

Thanks,

Hello Hima,

   

If I sell a product that use a Cypress BLE module, should I consider to change the hardware in the field for each new version of Bluetooth ?

   

Thanks,
