One kit wonder speeds up mesh network evaluation
The EZ-BT Mesh Evaluation kit from Cypress Semiconductor is in stock at Mouser Electronics. The battery- or USB-powered kit allows designers to evaluate the Bluetooth SIG mesh networking functionality of the CYBT-213043-02 EZ-BT WICED module. The kit contains four evaluation boards that allow engineers to evaluate a mesh network with just one kit.
Each board includes the fully certified CYBT-213043-02 EZ-BT module; thermistor, ambient light sensor, and PIR motion sensor; coin cell battery holder; micro-USB connector; and on-board programmer and USB-UART bridge.
The CYBT-213043-02 EZ-BT module is based on an ultra-low-power and highly integrated CYW20819 dual-mode Bluetooth 5.0-qualified device.
Its low power and integration capability addresses the requirements of both battery- and wall-powered applications that require Bluetooth Low Energy mesh, such as sensor nodes, locks, lighting, asset tracking, and other smart home applications.
Engineers can program the CYBT-213043-MESH EZ-BT Mesh Evaluation kit in v1.1 or later of the ModusToolbox integrated development environment (IDE).
ModusToolbox includes a number of demo code examples that help engineers quickly implement real-life mesh applications.
