Arrow Electronics and Cypress team up to provide ubiquitous IoT connectivity

Arrow Electronics and Cypress Semiconductor have announced the Titanium board, a technology ecosystem designed to enable developers to create products using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy cellular and LPWAN technologies, while taking advantage of Cypress’ low-power edge computing capabilities. The new Titanium board is designed to the Linaro 96Boards IoT edition specification, and features Cypress’ new PSoC 6 microcontroller with dual-core processing and BLE 5.0. With power provided by the Cypress EZ-PD CCG3 USB-C controller, Titanium also provides developers with advanced sensing capabilities featuring Bosch Sensortec’s new BME680 integrated environmental sensor for measurement of gas, humidity, temperature, and pressure.

The platform is Arm mBed-compatible, and features a 40-pin expansion connector compatible with other 96board platforms. Developers can take advantage of the expansion capability of the Titanium board to evaluate multiple connectivity and technology options, including the upcoming Cypress WICED mezzanine card currently in development. The PSoC 6 MCU is a low-power, flexible MCU with built-in Bluetooth low-energy wireless connectivity and integrated hardware-based security in a single device. The dual-core Arm Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M0+ MCU architecture lets designers optimize for power and performance simultaneously. The PSoC 6 MCU architecture’s easy-to-use, software-defined peripherals enable engineers to create innovative products, including wearables, industrial IoT equipment, smart home appliances, IoT gateways, portable medical devices and audio processing products.
