Pioneer kit said to help in rapid development of IoT apps

The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit, available from Farnell element14, is said to help engineers to speed the development of PSoC 6 based IoT applications.

The Arduino compatible development platform is supplied with a range of peripherals, including Bluetooth LE connectivity and Cypress’ CapSense capacitive-sensing technology. It also features the EZ-PD CCG3 USB-C controller for USB power delivery and an E-ink display add-on shield to support the prototyping of different IoT applications.

In addition, the kit is supported in the PSoC Creator 4.2 integrated development environment that enables concurrent hardware and firmware editing, compiling and debugging.

The PSoC 6, which features dual-core Arm Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M0+ processors, supports frequency scaling for extended battery life and consume 22µA/MHz in active power modes.
