Cypress’ PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit now available

Cypress Semiconductor has released the PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit and PSoC Creator Integrated Design Environment (IDE) software version 4.2 supporting designers to use the company’s PSoC 6 microcontroller (MCU) when developing IoT applications.

The PSoC BLE 6 is a low power, flexible MCU with built-in Bluetooth Low Energy wireless connectivity and integrated hardware-based security in a single device.

Early adopters have been using the flexible dual-core architecture of the PSoC 6, using the Arm Cortex-M4 core as a host processor and the Cortex-M0+ core to manage peripheral functions such as capacitive sensing, Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity and sensor aggregation. Applications include wearables, personal medical devices and wireless speakers.

Designers are also using the built-in security features in PSoC 6 to protect data.

The PSoC BLE Pioneer Kit features a PSoC 63 MCU with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity. It enables the development of touch and gesture-based interfaces with a linear slider, touch buttons and proximity sensors based on the latest generation of CapSense capacitive-sensing technology.

Designers can also use the board to add USB Power Delivery (PD) with its Cypress EZ-PD CCG3 USB-C controller.

The kit also includes a 2.7-inch E-ink Display Shield add-on board (CY8CKIT-028-EPD) with thermistor, digital mic, and 9-axes motion sensor.
