Cypress BLE Solutions are enabling long range IoT. Although Bluetooth has traditionally been viewed as a short-range technology, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is now being adopted in a wide array of industrial and commercial/consumer IoT applications like sensor nodes due to its low power consumption.

Several industrial/commercial applications are leveraging BLE for its ability to simply transmit data over a long range to a hub and/or a smartphone – without consuming large amounts of power. Cypress’ EZ-BLE™ PSoC® Extended Range/Extended Temperature module is an ideal fit for these industrial/lighting applications  because of its long range (400m line-of-sight) and high temperature tolerance (-40°C to +105°C) capabilities.
