Tilt Hydrometer (Part 5) Tilt Simulator & Multi Advertising iBeacons

Summary Using the PSoC 6 AnyCloud Bluetooth Stack to send out “multi-adv” Bluetooth advertising packets with a PSoC 6 and CYW43012.  Multi-adv means sending out multiple different simultaneous Bluetooth Advertising packets.  This includes building a project to simulate a Tilt Hydrometer. Story As I worked on the Tilt project I came to realize that what […]

Tilt Hydrometer (Part 3) Advertising Scanner

Summary In this article I will build the basic project and then add the scanner code to look for Tilt Hydrometers that are broadcasting the iBeacon.  It will decode the data and print out Gravity and Temperature. Build the Basic Project Start by making a new project using the CY8CKIT-062S2-43012.  I chose this kit because […]
