This pages gets to you all of the Cypress WICED BR+EDR+Bluetooth products
WICED CYW20719 Product Page
When you get the the BLE+Bluetooth products page, then click “BLE+BT” to see just the chips Im talking about here (CYW20719)
The Product Guide is a website that has all (most?) of the links you might need to learn about the CYW20719
The Datasheet always anchors you to the reality of what the chip can and cannot do
This webpage has a list of all of the stuff that you have access to inside of the WICED Bluetooth SDK.
And it goes on and on and on from here.
If you feel like building a Bluetooth Product, you are almost certainly going to want to use a FCC certified module. This guide is a discussion of all of the module vendors.
CYW920719Q40EVB-01 Development Kit
Here is the development kit. You can see in the picture that this is an Arduino form factor board. It has a button and and LED plus programmer and UART bridge. Most importantly it has a daughter card with the 20719 and and antenna.
The product landing pages for the development kit has lots of resources specific to this kit including the manual and quick start guide.
The Quickstart guide is included in the kit. Just a single sheet of paper that points out all of the features of the development kit.
The Users Guide is the manual for the development kit. It shows you how to use all of the resouces on the board and how to get going with WICED Studio.
The community is your anchor for support. It has all of the documentation etc… and most importantly a vibrant user forum.
The Bluetooth Community website brings together all of the people and product collateral for WICED Bluetooth.
The actual forum is accessible to everyone to ask questions about the Cypress products. It is staffed by our technical support team and you will get good answers.
WICED Studio is the development tool which you can use to build projects. This will be the central tool used for the rest of this class.
WICED Studio Bluetooth Example Projects
Cypress delivers a bunch of “apps” which range from small examples we call SNIPs to more fully featured projects (in the Demo) folder. Ill be showing you how to use the in the next set of tutorials.
WICED Studio Documentation
In the “doc” folder resides all of the documentation for WICED bluetooth.
WICED Bluetooth API Guide
The API guide is doxygen generated API documentation for the WICED Bluetooth SDK.
WICED Studio README.txt
WICED Bluetooth 101
I have been working with some amazing people to build a class for learning WICED Bluetooth. You can find all of the material at https://github.com/cypresssemiconductorco/CypressAcademy_WBT101_Files
